Extract from guestbook. 9th Nov.2004,
Jim Reid, Germany
".....I'm a regular visitor to the website and have just seen
the one and only photograph of what is left of Martin St.
On the corner facing the camera used to be the Bookies where me and ma
cousin Louise used to get pennies aff ma great granda Reid, next to that
wis the "wee Dairy shoap" (just about level where the car is
sitting). Then you had the first close where a lived wi ma Maw and Da and
wee brother Brian at No 11.
Up the next close lived ma granny Reid at No 19. Next tae that close wis
Jimmy Flannagan's the newsagents where I used to get ma "Lucky
Bags" and sherbet. Off the photo to the left of the Bookies on the
next corner, used to be Rockcliffe Church where ma Maw 'n Da got married.
.............I've lots of good memories of that street, it's shame to see
it like that now..
