Ayr, Loudoun Hall 1958

Memories of Ayr


Doe anyone remember Mr Rossi who had a chip shop Main Rd, Whitletts. He had a coca cola machine with ice cold coke in a glass bottle. He also used to sell the bits of batter that came off the fish - I used to buy a twopenny bag and loved it . Very fond memories of his chip shop.

My memories are so many good times, I lived at the ice Rink on Beresford Terrace I skated there almost everyday. I would get so perturbed when the curling would start because they cut our skate space to quarter ice. Sunday was the day when after church we would walk the High Street looking in the shop windows "window shopping" You (...Read full memory)

His name was Mr Mathias and his place was in Allison St, my friends and I used to take rags to get enough maoney to go to the pictures. He was well known around the streets.

Can anyone help? I am looking for a photo of the above place where my Granny and the family lived in 1911, their address was 13 Craigmiller Building, Lymonds Wynd Ayr. I always thought this address was King Street, Ayr could be that King Street is where Spion Kop was?
