Re: ?

Worked often from the old box 30 in Wauchope Avenue next to Charlie Combes, also Box 29 Duddingston Road West, and box 31 Niddrie Mill Crossroads. The station I worked out of was actually in Niddrie Mains Road. Every so often was removed from the Niddrie environment and worked Marshal Street, and Middle Meadow Walk beats. Loved them all.

Mr Tamson, a mutual friend. John Rebus, informs me that they're singing songs about you on youtube. It seems you come from a very large family. If they all come home together you're going to need a bigger house.

Re: ?

Don't seem to be able to get that page, but if its the family I am thinking of it will be more of a haunting than a visit.Mr Rebus is a person I follow diligently, often think of names such as Jimmy Pryde whom he reminds me of. Met a man here in Vancouver named Hepburn who claims he was held out a window by a Rebus type individual in the old Central station in the High Street. Wonderful days, between Niddrie and the old Dumbiedykes, Pleasance areas, could fill two books. Just to be truthful look at a vet here named Bob Sharp, I changed my name because was having so much trouble getting on here but now it seems o.k time for honesty. also has my e mail. Bob Sharp
