Main Street Mill Of Haldane - a Memory of Balloch.
Hi, I wonder if anyone remembers my childhood home in Main Street. I lived there with my mum, dad, granny and two sisters in the 1960,s and have many lovely memories of my childhood there, I have tried many times to find any pictures of my home which consisted of a tenement block with attics and two cottages. Mr Duncan Ritchie stayed in one of the cottages with his dog Nell, think he was a stationmaster at Balloch
Train station and had a handlebar moustache. Mrs McFarlane ,s wee shop was across the road in Haldane Terrace. There were many families who stayed there but nobody I have spoken to seems to remember it at all, I would love to hear if anybody has any recollection of it and a picture would be fantastic. The buildings were on Drymen road where there is now just a grassy area, diagonally opposite Haldane Terrace if that would jog anybody's memory, every bit of history of the area concentrates on Balloch, Jamestown or Alexandria and Renton but stops just before my old house was.
