Bygone News - Church Street en Memories of Dundee - Part Seven <div class="content clear-block"> <p>1939 was also a remarkable year for me personally. My parents were Good Templars, i.e they did not drink alcoholic beverages and were staunch members of the Independent Order of Good Templars in Dundee or simple ‘the Lodge’ as they termed it, since every branch was a lodge with a particular name and number. My first recollections are of them being members of Camperdown Lodge, which met on a Saturday evening in Camperdown Masonic Hall which was situated in a corner of a square, up an outside stair from which access was gained by way of a pend in Barrack Street. However this closed, due to lack of members in 1938. My parents them transferred their allegiance to Rescue Lodge which met on a Tuesday evening in St Salvador’s church hall in Church Street. There were other lodges which met on other evening's throughout the city; The Home of Peace, The Pioneer of Peace and The Perseverance are the ones I remember.<span class="read-more"><a href="/reminiscences/memories-dundee-part-seven"><strong>&nbsp;Read more......</strong></a></span></p> </div> Barrack Street Church Street 1930's Childhood Entertainment Family Music / Concerts Walter Blacklaw City Centre Hilltown Wed, 30 Mar 2011 09:01:25 +0000 lynne.davidson 762 at Memories of Dundee - Part Six <div class="content clear-block"> <p>The year 1939 was memorable for a number of reasons.

Dens Road School was across the road and I started at the nursery class there when I was three and a half years old and then started at the 'big school' at four and a half. This is me in Miss Barrie's infant class in 1930. Dens Road was a great school and I was there from three and a half years old to nine years old.<span class="read-more"><a href="/reminiscences/culture-shock"><strong>&nbsp;Read more......</strong></a></span></p> </div> Church Street Dens Road Graham Street Kingsway Mitchell Street 1920's Football School Days Burnett Fairmuir Thu, 03 Mar 2011 11:47:22 +0000 lynne.davidson 591 at
