Bygone News - Fran Giblin en Smell of Jute <p>I lived in Shepherds Loan in the early fifties in a tenement right next to Thomson and Shepherds, at the end of the day the bummer would sound and men and women would stream up the road on their way home, the jute fibres filled the air and the smell of jute hung heavy all around us. I loved Lizzie Smiths shop at the top of the road and would spend all of my one and sixpence pocket money there.</p> Shepherd's Loan 1950's Childhood Shopping Work / Working Life Fran Giblin West End Tue, 08 May 2012 15:32:51 +0000 lynne.davidson 944 at
