High St from the end of Bank St

Unused postcard looking down High St. Ther's an awning outside the shop and a metal frame, presumably for street lighting on the corner. If you view the large version you can see that some of the children have tennis raquets, and there's a bicycle leaning against the gates to Bank House garden. On the right, there's a house sticking out into the pavement which can be seen from the other direction in picture #643 and picture #147. There is a drain in the foreground which is not visible in later pictures, though picture #2308 shows a hydrant nearby.

Hello Jean. Is this the Jean Mcbeath who used to run the shop with Roddy?? The same Jean I used to buy crisps and nutty from?? If it is, I'm happy you're still around, I hope you've discovered the secret to immortality!!

Hi Tony. It is the same Jean, participating here by proxy! I'll pass on your comment. She and Roddy are both pretty well and still living in the house on the corner. Roddy had his 90th birthday a couple of months ago.

Hi Estelle, participating by proxy. Thank you for passing on my comments, you must also wish Roddy a belated happy birthday for me, I'm very pleased they are both in good health.

My late Mam, Peggy Cowie (MacLeman) was good friends with Mrs Cross. She was a very old lady but I remember visiting her and loving her small walled garden with a lot of ivy and paving. When we first saw our house here there was a lot of ivy in the garden and I remembered Mrs Cross.
