    I would very much like to see what you have thirsaloon. It would be great to be able to see that part of the town as it was when my folks were living there.

    Cheers,

    An enhanced and repaired copy of golach's picture.
    Posted with the kind permission of golach.


    (note that the name on the lintel is of a previous owner named 'Manson')

    Addendum: As a matter of (genealogical) interest, Joe Cardosi was living at No.15 Swanson Street when he married Margaret 'Maggie' Munro in 1915.

    Post c1890 Miss Swanson and parents

    Thank you golach and lizz for the photo.

    My father had this shop in the 1930s-50s. His name was John Forbes. At that time the window on the right of the picture was part of the house (front room) and we lived there until 1943. My father continued to rent the shop until the 50s.

    It was a lovely surprise to see this photo. Many thanks

    Anyone got a current image of 13 Swanson Street for a 'now & then' comparison?

    Swanson Street is shown clearly on the "Google maps site" if that helps.

    Thats a shame but you have helped keep this thread going. I have plenty more but my time is taken up with lots of other stuff at the moment so lets hope someone else can keep this going. Be a shame if the most popular thread here is to die out.
