Re: Sad News - Morag

With 11337 contributions, Morag was the second highest poster on ThreeTowners and her passing will leave a big gap. May she rest in peace.

Ardeer Thistle were founded in 1900 so co-existed with Stevenston Thistle for twenty years. Incidentally, I watched Ardeer Thistle win their first point of the season last Saturday in a 1-1 draw with Saltcoats Vics at Campbell Park.

Re: Road bridge - top of Barrie Terrace?

I have just visited the Scotland's People website and found that Stanley Reid Barrie was born on 21 December 1903 at 19 Barrie Terrace, Ardrossan. His father was George Barrie, a coal merchant and his mother was Agnes Barrie, maiden surname Reid.

I hope this is useful.
