"; so he was obviously a fixture throughout its golden era. From the sounds of some of the past postings about him,not all of you would quite agree with that eulogy.... I think he's supposed to be in this picture, perhaps someone could confirm that for the record.
No Susan, that's not Bob Hamilton. Here he is as many will remember him:

There were three cottages there, probably knocked down round about 1957/58. The families that lived in them till the end were the Dales, the Conwells and the Findleys. The Dales had 5 children, the Conwells had 7 and the Findleys 6. I remember this because I lived in one of them (Billy Dale)

Number 68 Ardrossan Rd was my gran and grandpa's house. Archie and Euphemia Gibson. As far as I recall they bought the house from Peter and Pearl Buchanan. The glass panel with the clan motto was inserted by the Buchanans.....the same clan as Gibson ironically.
