Hi Grekko
Years have passed I know since you posted your message and photo. Sadly, I haven't been able to see photo, but somewhere, I still have photos of Christine Cottier, who was my best childhood friend and lived next door but one to me in Gloucester Road, right opposite Christ Church side school gate. Would love to know what happened to her. Dougie McCreath lived behind us and we rigged up a pully system from his bedroom window, across the back yards and entry, to Christine's bedroom and then across to mine. We used to write messages to each other and send them along on the pulley rope - until the window cleaner complained that his ladders kept getting fouled up in the ropes and we had to take it all down. Happy days.
