I'm closing this topic for 24 hours, hoping cool heads will prevail when it re-opens. :(

Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Viviane. Sorry to hear of the loss of your mum, so soon after your dad's passing.

Re: Ardrossan - On This Day In History

Bob's cousins, George and Marjory Cook were twins in my class at Winton but left for Australia around 1949. Got re-aquanted with George during our teenage years when he came back to Ardrossan for a holiday. :)

Re: The ... What are you doing or thinking right now - Topic

We had an H Ariel and I do remember plugging in a portable radio to that and getting a fantastic reception on Radio Carolyn - not the local one, but the one in the English Chanel. This would be prior to 1964 as that was when we migrated to Oz - I'm thinking it was nearer to 1960.

Re: Mac's Bar - Our Virtual Cafe

I'd like a Jacob's Creek Shiraz please and a Pina Colada for the wife - she's treating me so she says. In the meantime put it on my tab - she owes me. :roll: Did the shopping for our men's kitchen today. It included 24 cans of light beer - known as a slab (for cooking purposes) Woolies wanted $45 fo...

Re: Coronation Street Party - Ardrossan 1953

This sounds all very plausible, Irene. I knew both Hugh and Ian. Ian was in my class at Eglinton. Looking further back to the 1891 census the following two unrelated McCallum families are at the same tenement address. McCallum 1891 88 Raise st Saltcoats (Ardrossan film) Hugh / head / 31 / railway gu...
