I've asked this before, did Bernard McAllan emigrate overseas? He lived in the middle portion of Botham St, some of his neighbours were, Harris, Archers and Golland across the street, not that far from Higginbottoms, who lived on the lower section as I recall, I believe that Derek Higginbottom sister is on the forum, perhaps she could shed light on this or anybody else for that matter.

Hi Sheila, Sorry i didn't explain right about the picture,

sumut that stood there for many years, lots of people relied on it.

From your mums house you'd had the best view.
