Hi Foster  -  I remember your parents shop,I used to by my morning paper from there,The Sketch,the crossword was easy to do,and it had pin ups in it.Your gran lived in Cato St. I believe.I used to hang around Cato St. North during my teen years,had a great bunch of mates who lived there.

Hi Blane I am sure it was you who was asking if anyone had a photo of the houses in long acre between the railway bridge and the mitre pub some time back in a past post? it may have been on the Dispensary thread
