Wedding

"I'm attaching a photo of some people who lived by us. 

The bride was Lillian Grant and the bridesmaid was Cathy Gormley. The young girl on the left was Dorothy Jones (top balcony) and I am the wee girl on the right (first balcony).

Both families lived on the ground floor.  You went in a door, the Gormleys to the left (right below 65) and the Grants to the right."

She is still around and lives at Ferniehill, Edinburgh. 

I'm sure she would be delighted to here from Jeanette.  I could pass on any message to my Aunt Cathy.

Thank you to Charlie MacDonald, West Lothian, Scotland, who wrote:

The Couple

Dumbiedykes, Lower Viewcraig Row  -  Wedding

"The couple in the wedding photo  are my wife's Aunt and Uncle.  Lillian Grant is the Bride.

Lillian's sister, Elizabeth, lived along by St Margaret's Church.  I lived in 23 Lower Viewcraig Row.  My parents knew Elizabeth.   Everyone knew everyone then.

Elizabeth moved down to Gravesend, years ago, when she married, but her daughter also called Lilian (spelling mix up when registered), had some sense and married a Scots man and moved back to Scotland in 1972.

 We now live in Livingston, (3 children and 3 grandchildren).

Charlie MacDonald, West Lothian, Scotland
