Bygone News - King Street en Jean Bruce Pringle - Ballet School <p>I also went to Jean Pringle at the foot of King Street&nbsp; - I think round about &nbsp;<br />1960. Linda Penman who lived in Albert Street also went there and a girl &nbsp;<br />called Ria or Lea who was from Charleston Dundee. I absolutely loved it. Jean &nbsp;<br />looked every inch a ballet dancer and my weekly lesson couldn't come quick &nbsp;<br />enough for me. Hopefully I will hear a bit more from some other pupils from &nbsp;<br />that time.</p> Albert Street King Street 1960's Childhood Dancing / Dance Halls Hobbies Margie Bruce (nee Williamson) Charleston Stobswell Tue, 08 May 2012 15:39:27 +0000 lynne.davidson 945 at Another Runaway Tram <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>On the Maryfield line, just before the Arbroath Road on Albert Street a fellow had parked his horse and cart. The tram driver decided that there was not enough room to pass, he decided to go into nearby shops to look for the carter but the tram's air brake leaked and the tram, full of passengers ran right down Princes Street and King Street to the Gaumont Cinema. Mr Charles Broadley, Superintendent, took charge of the situation, fortunately no one was hurt.</p> Albert Street Arbroath Road King Street Princes Street 1950's Cinema / Theatre Trams Work / Working Life James Valentine Maryfield Tue, 15 Mar 2011 14:39:10 +0000 lynne.davidson 683 at
