    Grew up on Hospital Hill from 1939 to 1946. I remember the super icecream shop on St Andrews Street to the right. Carrera’s? Used to be sent by grandad to the chippie next door for black puddin and chips. Between us and Tollgate there was a blacksmithy set back from the road.

    Used to walk to the High every day – we lived in the Pitcorthie estate. Mind the Brucefield cafe- great ice cream. Used to spend my dinner money at the Brig Cafe ( 5p plate of chips ) then spent the rest on ice poles from the wee shoppie on Whirlbut Street then back to school across the playing fields. Happy days!

    My son who is now 36 and myself soon to be 65 were born in the now closed Maternity hospital which would be to the left of the photograph. I am now in Australia and love these old photographs. Any of the hospital ?

    I’ve fond memories of this area. My grandad (Dick Baglow) had the barbershop/hairdresser in St Andrew street. He used to put the wooden board across the arms of the barber chair so I’d sit higher and then he’d start cutting my hair, every time he’d drop a lifelike rubber ear on the floor and say “oh ya bugger, I’ve cut your ear off “
