The 'baby swings' in Victoria Park

Duncan enjoying a sherbet dip if I'm not mistaken!

A typical summer Saturday morning - pester your parents for your pocket money - I'd have got a shilling at that time - and off to MacGregor's, Macewan's, Macbeath's or Jessie Ross's to blow the lot on Lucky Bags, pretend cigarettes or McGowan's toffee. Any change left would be quickly converted into Blackjacks or Fruit Cocktail chews at a ha'penny each. Then up to the park to sit on the roundabout or the witch's hat to scoff the lot. Magic!

sherbit dip soon to be replaced with 10 regal, hiding out of sight in bus shelter, with the other reprobates, passing away the time, and watching the world go by, slowly as was the case with Cromarty, the only thing i remember going quickly there was the halves, don, t think much has changed, only the halves are more expensive now and everyone has to sneek out for a smoke now
