I don't remember a pet shop there, just a regular kind of small grocery store that sold newspapers and stuff like that, so you did not have to go all the way into town.

I Peter

It was Ted Fleming and we moved into their old house at 128 Davaar Ave when i was 11years old. Remember the drive was made at the side of the house for his daughters wee blue three wheeler disabilty car. Funny you'll mind as far back as that, yet if someone asked ye what did you do today, ye'll hae a blank mind. :?

Am I right in saying that it was Ted Fleming, previous to the Millknowe Shop, had a shop at the bottom of Albynn Avenue?It was made of wood and painted green(or maybe blue),no more than a big shed really.
This is going back to when the gasometer and the piggery were still there in the Roading.

Now there's a thing...what was the name of the guy who had the piggery on the Roading?

Ted Fleming had the wooden shop in Albyn Avenue, and it was demolished along with the prefabs, and he relocated to Millknowe Terrace round about 1962/63. The shop is still there having been through quite a few different proprietors over the last 40 odd years.

Maybe somebody else can answer the piggery query. I can remember the noise from the piggery that filled the whole neighbourhood when the pigs were being fed, and we used to go to see them after school sometimes, but I couldn't give the owner's name.

Cant remember the wee shop or even the prefabs... but I'm obviously a good bit younger than you... I do remember the coal heaps in the gas works just over the wall from Millknowe school, and running down them when I had to get the football back if the ball went over, wonder what the health and safety people would say about that now... I do howerver remember clambering about over the top of the roofs of the old bakery at the bottom of Fisher Row, bloody stupid if you think of it, but it seemed fun at the time... :oops:
Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they are not out to get you!

There was an earlier post office in Millknowe Terrace. It was in the house on the right hand side of the first pend in the terrace. I can just remember being in there but I think it goes back to my pre school days.

Also if I remember correctly there was a shop in Dalaruan Terrace, somewhere near the end of the terrace at Craigowan Park end. I have faint recollections of going to this shop on my way to Dalintober School. Anybody confirm this? I don't mean Fred Waggett's shop, it was across the road in Glentorran Place, and was a Mecca for the pupils at Dalintober School.
