Bygone News - Kings Cross Road en Halcyon Days <p>I lived at 20 Kings Cross Road Beechwood up to the early seventies then moved to Kirkton when I was thirteen. I remember a newspaper vendor called Johnny Croll who used to give us a few bob to deliver the telegraph to the industrial estate through the hole in the wall in Beechwood,we also used to collect empty lemonade bottles from the factories then take them to Margi McBains sweetie shop and receive a few pennies for them. Halcyon days indeed.</p> Kings Cross Road Childhood Work / Working Life Kevin Melville Beechwood Kirkton / Trottick Mon, 10 Mar 2014 16:13:22 +0000 fiona.christison 1198 at Gas Explosion <p>I recall getting off the bus at Kings Cross Road and walking along Dronley Place when suddenly there was a massive gas explosion behind me.</p> <p>One of the tenements in Kings Cross Road had the front blown off. I felt like I had just experienced an earthquake as I walked home that day. It must have been about 1975 or slightly earlier.</p> Dronley Place Kings Cross Road Housing Beechboy Beechwood Fri, 26 Oct 2012 15:20:16 +0000 fiona.christison 1009 at Childhood in Beechwood <p>I have fond memories of growing up in Beechwood, living in a tenement in Kingscross road.
