The Auld Hoose - a Memory of Linlithgow.
I spent a lot of my childhood at my G.Grandmother's auld hoose in the High Street, Linlithgow across the road from Alva House. Through a close, a Mrs Swan lived up right and Liza Dalrymple on the left.
Next door was a Jimmie O'Connor (?) and Ian (?) who sang like a linty. On my only return visit, was devastated to find those houses gone, taking precious memories with them. I remember Tyndall McClellands, the swing park, the milk cart, and the baker's horse and cart.
A cousin, David Park (his parents Jim and Nan lived up Preston Road) was killed in a flying accident on his 21st birthday. I think I was 8 or 9.
I now live in Norfolk Island, a wee dot in the Pacific and a long way away, but wonder if anyone has a photograph of the auld hoose, or remembers Grannie Nimmo Park, now resting in St Michaels? Many, many thanks.
