About this memory

Photograph shows Me aged 9 with my Mum in front of our House at 2 Well Court.

My mum was born in the Dean Village and Dad was born in Kirkliston.

When Mum and Dad got married they moved into Gran and Grandad's at 2 Well Court.

Mum and dad moved to Grindlay Street near the Usher Hall as they ran the bar and restaurant.

After Douglas my brother and I were born mum and dad moved back to 2 Well Court and lived there with Gran and Grandad, Uncle Willie, Auntie Betty, Uncle Bill and my cousin Elizabeth which made a total of 7 adults and 3 children in Gran and Grandad's 2 bedroom house (a very tight squeeze).
