Bygone News - Eden Street en Holiday Memories <p>My grandfather's unmarried sister, Georgina Scott lived in Eden Street for many years and her parents before her. She died in approximately 1960. Our family stayed with her for a holiday a few years before she died. My sister can remember a bed in the living room. I remember the man in the corner shop could smoke his cigarette backwards i.e. with the lit end in his mouth.</p> Eden Street 1960's Family Holidays/Day Trips Sue Stead Stobswell Mon, 21 Mar 2011 15:32:48 +0000 lynne.davidson 737 at Tram Times <div class="content clear-block"> <p><span class='wysiwyg_imageupload image imgupl_floating_right imgupl_styles_spacing_20_black_border\n\rBlack Border'><a href="" rel="lightbox[wysiwyg_imageupload_inline]" title=""><img src="" alt="" title="" class="imagecache wysiwyg_imageupload imgupl_styles_spacing_20_black_border\n\rBlack Border imagecache imagecache-medium" style="" width="230" height="165" /></a> <span class='image_meta'></span></span>My first recollection of the trams in Dundee was when we live in Lochee and I would watch them from our window. During the General Strike in 1926 my mother took me downtown in a tram. She said it was driven by blackleg drivers (all the transport workers were on strike). I went to the front of the tram to see these 'blacklegs'. However the driver was in a civilian suit with a policeman sitting beside him.<span class="read-more"><a href="/reminiscences/tram-times"><strong>&nbsp;Read more......</strong></a></span></p> </div> Arbroath Road Eden Street 1920's Christmas Street Life Trams James Donald Broughty Ferry Lochee Tue, 15 Mar 2011 14:46:12 +0000 lynne.davidson 685 at
