Back of Allan Square - now Surgery

This shows the area where the doctor's surgery now stands. The space to the left looking towards Denoon Place had previously held a large warehouse-type building. Town children used to play in (and on) the building, and Billy 'Beam' Watson had fallen from the rafters inside to his severe injury - fortunately making a full recovery. The building was then demolished. Date of photo is a guess, but is probably fairly accurate.

Alison, my brother actually fell through the roof of the building which is now Billy Fraser's workshop next to the Royal Hotel.

I remember this building being referred to as Cathal McKenzie's shed (He lived directly across the road from the Victoria Hall)and I have vivid memories of jumping off the rafters onto a huge load of straw (wouldn't contemplate it now!)
