Ardrossan Rose and Alec

Post by Allison » Mon Feb 15, 2021 1:31 am

Does anyone remember the Westlund family of Ardrossan?
Karl was a dock labourer and was married to Catherine/Cathy born 1909 ish
Daughters Rose and Catherine specifically
Rose Westlund married Alec/Alex ? Surname and Alec worked in the docks unloading sulphur. They both had ice cream vans that they drove round Ardrossan and Saltcoats in the 70's. They had a son Alexander.
Any info would be marvellous 😘

I didn't know the family as such but something runs in my mind that they lived in Ashgrove Road, Ardrossan, at one time??
Also, a Carl Westlund, appears in the school photogrpah section of Threetowners (circa1948); as does a Joan Westlund (1960) - both at St. Peter Primary, Ardrossan.
Nothing is ever really lost to us as long as we remember it.

Hi Penny
I am not familiar with the forum and have no idea how to locate the school photographs or that section you are talking about. Please could you help me find them. I have opened the Three Towners Photo Album and see My Photos, General Photos and then below them Topics. No idea where to go from there :(

You were in the right place Allison, from the photo album, you go into school photos for Ardrossan, then St Peters. Clicking on each of the photos will bring up a list of names. Good luck.

There’s a link here
