A family of Dochertys lived in Busbie Drive until they moved round the corner to Ailsa Gardens, where some of them might still be.

In the second of George's pictures, on the left-hand side, the first block of four flats, left-hand again, downstairs (with the car parked on the driveway or on that of the semi-detached next door) is the Docherty's former home. Mickey and Philomena were the parents and they had around eight children. The parents came originally from Inishowen and arrived in Ardrossan via Glasgow.

I lived at 11 Busbie Drive from around 1949 until 1961. I remember 2 sisters living at No13 but unfortunately I can't remember their names. Poppy
Hi Poppy

Did you know the Wallaces at number 10 or the Browns at number 14?
