September 1958

About this memory

Ours was the bottom flat in Firrhill Crescent . My aunt is standing in the garden and my sister is on the garden seat. I think I am in the group of children on the pavement. My parents had a room in a boarding house in Salisbury Place when I was born and this was the first and only real home
