"My grandfather had a waistcoat workshop in Boundary Passage in the 1890's and after.where my father, his brothers and sister were born.
He drank the family fortunes away in the Ship and Blue Ball, the pub on the corner of the Passage and Boundary street, alas, now converted into offices
My father and his siblings all attended the schools around the bandstand.which acted as a playground.
My aunt Rachel (known as Ginger or Genie) had a best friend whose surname was MIllan and could well be related to one of your other correspondants of the same name. I think my uncles caled her "Minkie".."
