It was great to see electric light and a loo inside and I remember mare tinnie in the top storie, and I remember Patons Lane well too, in thoses days great daysI have been back often.
I was born in Paton's Lane in 1936. We used to play down the Magdalen Green and the bandstand.
I remember the Kings and all the other cinemas. My dad used to play bowls down the green, and dominoes in the Tay Bridge Bar at the top of Paton's Lane.
My mother used to take me to Gray's cinema when we lived in Paton's Lane in the 40's.
