Bygone News - Shepherd's Loan en Memories of 50 Years Ago <p>I was born in Clement Park in 1943. I lived in the square in Shepherd's &nbsp;Loan, in my Granny Ogilvie's house. It had four rooms and a toilet. I went to Hawkhill School. My grandfather Hall lived under Cox's Stack in a big grey house. One of my friends was Jean Navickas she lived across the square. There was Mary Gatley and Helen Davies who lived above us. We emigrated to Australia in 1951. I told my friend Jean that I would be back in two years for a holiday but didn't get back for another 50 years and then my memories were all gone.</p> Hawkhill Shepherd's Loan 1939-1945 Childhood Elizabeth Hall Clement Park Hawkhill Tue, 06 Jan 2015 09:08:44 +0000 lynne.davidson 1291 at 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
