They took over the majority of my care after my mum sadly died when I was four years old.</p> <p>I have many happy memories of the jute workers who came into the shop and the actors from the Rep Theatre which was in the church at the top of Polepark. It was a lovely time to grow up and a caring way of life when people all looked after their neighbours. Ann and Bert Small ran a lovely wee shop and were kind to their customers.<span class="read-more"><a href="/reminiscences/memories-polepark"><strong>&nbsp;Read more......</strong></a></span></p> Polepark Road Childhood Family People Shopping Work / Working Life Ann Traynor (Small) Polepark Wed, 30 Jul 2014 12:46:22 +0000 fiona.christison 1257 at Penny Buster Stall <p>Born in February 1942 in Brook Street I came from a family of 10. We moved to Polepark Road and attended Mitchell Street primary school in 1946 until going to Logie High (Penitentiary). Later we moved to Grey Street, Lochee. Many happy times of going down to the penny buster stall in the Overgate and of Greenhills the chemist where our late dad would buy us a saspirrila to clean out the insides. I also remember being pulled out of school and sent to the tattie howkin. We were paid the great sum of 10 shillings.<span class="read-more"><a href="/reminiscences/penny-buster-stall"><strong>&nbsp;Read more......</strong></a></span> Brook Street Polepark Road Childhood Food and Drink School Days Tommy Fox Overgate Wed, 04 Dec 2013 10:24:32 +0000 fiona.christison 1113 at
