Looking Back - a Memory of Dumfries.

I am 83 at present yet the memories of my birth place are with me forever. I was born in Dumfries at the address 2 Mitchels Lane. Also known to the locals as Skitter Lane best not to go into that. I grew up just a stone throw from the river Nith and as a boy spent a lot of time boating on the river or swimming in the Salmon Hole . At that time we could hire a bicycle and go for lovely rides with my cousin Ian McLaren.. Oh bye the way I am George Mclellan. Most of my family are dead now and this also applies to the kids I knew.
