Hi Joe, we lived at 115 Dunchatten street above the grocers and Miss Harris fruit shop, we played on the bottom of Evelyn street which was blocked by the big wall at the back of Miss Lauder's.
If you played football or rounders and the ball went over the wall woe betide you if she was home. She knew who we were as we all went to Golfhill
I emigrated to N.Z. in 64 I do not know what happened to the house

Have a look on maps.nls.uk. They do overlays of the area and you can see where exactly it was. It's an addictive site.

Hello if you like the NLS map website, visit their new space at kelvin hall, they have the online maps and a film archive too
