Welcome to the group you will find us very friendly Graham

Hello Newbie.
Am new to this so please forgive me, (this message will probably end up in cyberspace anyway).
Am a brummy living well out of town but still get nostalgic. Well, I signed up for this and you literally jumped out at me.
Was born 4/4/Devon Street and Howard Thorne was either my dad or my eldest brother, take your pick. Must admit I got a bolt of adrenaline when I saw your post. I had 2 older sisters Jean and Chrissy, 2 older brothers Howard and Alan, mum Rose and dad Howard.
My name is Graham and I've signed up as Youngestthorne. Nice one.
but also very interesting enjoy looking back through the previous postings

Hi Graham. Welcome to the forum.
I'm not sure how old you are but did you attend St Annes School in Devon St, I was there from 1956 till 1960 and have some fond memories of the school and some not so fond. Some of the teachers were pretty rough on us kids. Loved the swing park opposite though....

Malcolm , are you talking of Aldelaide Terrace Erskine St
Vauxhall , my gran her sister and there friend all elderly lived in the first three houses on the left side that backed onto the railway there where
five or six houses altogether with shared toilets up the top this would be early 60s they had been residents a long time I was born in Erskine St the other side of the bridge in the war days , the rightside of the terrace was bombed , there was only the five or six houses left and eventually became Saint Vincents School playground , I hope this has been helpful and wish you well in your search
