Bygone News - Allan Lorimer en Memories of Blackness Road / Brook Street <p>We lived in tenement at the bottom of Blackness Road / Brook Street. Only gas, no electricity and the loo was on the landing, my mother having to clean her part of the stairs, and as Billy Connolly would say we used an old army greatcoat as an eiderdown. Then the exciting time of moving to St Mary's to a three bedroom house with garden and a great treat of having a loo and bath indoors. Even though I was only 2/3 I remember the journey in the back of a removal van from our old tenement to our new home. Great days, I wish I could rewind and go back to those days (time move on).<span class="read-more"><a href="/reminiscences/memories-blackness-road-brook-street"><strong>&nbsp;Read more......</strong></a></span> Blackness Road Brook Street Housing Allan Lorimer Tue, 14 Aug 2012 15:26:47 +0000 fiona.christison 983 at
