Recommended Posts

But at the time I was starting my second Year at Myers Grove and lived on Cross Addy Street (off Addy Street). therefore to catch the bus I had to walk down to Infirmary Road through Portland Street which was being stripped out prior to demolition but the roof slates had not been removed.
