Pudding, Great photo's, I seem to recall seeing the lady in the fur coat about, tho' I never knew her personally.
  Phil is correct about where I was on about, it's the left hand side of Devon St looking at the map. If you check out the first & second courts from the corner of the mill you'll see that block of six houses that are no longer there in the second map.
  Do you remember the explosion in the railway sidings in '63 or '64. when a 2 bowsers full of Napthelene blew up?

Strange that, she also looks very familiar to me, and I never drank in the manor or frequented Malvern Hill rd. Where else did your mom drink, did she ever use the Railway Club?

Dek
 
It would have been Les's café on the corner of Alma Crescent, that is the one that was popular with the lorry drivers. The one on the corner of Erskine St wasn't so busy, mind you I did date a girl that worked there for a short while, I suppose that would have been around 63/64. She went off to work at the Naafi at some far flung army barracks somewhere and I never saw her again. I suppose she is married to some ex squadie now for the life of me I can't even remember her name now.

Hi Dek and Jane, Les's did have pinball machines too and great sandwiches ....
 
The BRS wagons used to park across the road from Les's ,on Dollman St and across from Fellow's Outdoor, just up the side at the end of Alma Crescent .... We used to root in the back of them as kids because they were only tarpaulin covers with straps ....    :o
 
Does anyone remember the Ellis's, Burn's, Toppin's, Wood's, Healy's, McColgan's, Mullin's, Nisbet's, Banbury's, Kirwan's, Cusacks, Harold's and Conlon's from Dollman St, Cathcart St and Erskine St ....
 
Dek, the cafe at the corner of Erskine/Dollman St was a popular cafe with the railway workers, it used to have a couple of pinball machines and a flipper machine. Jean was the owners name.
 
Dolly Goodman's shop was across the road, she had a horrible little dog, a Jack Russell, I think .... Anyway, the horrible little B...... bit me and I was only going to stroke it, Dolly said " Oh did he ..." when I told her .... I was only about six at the time ....
 
Pudding, they are great pics .... I used to go in there in the Smoke Room I think, the entrance was on the Mill and we used to play darts and have a few pints ....
