DUMBARTON WEST END IN THE EARLY 1980s …

Image may contain: sky, mountain, outdoor and nature

This nostalgic picture submitted to Facebook by Donald Chisholm brought back lots of memories and comments. Christina Hill said: “Great photo although I don’t recognise the houses to the far right” I was able to help there by telling her :  “That’s Oxhill Place. I used to know nearly every family who lived in Brucehill. But then I was the paper boy for Hart’s Shop on the Brae, Big Jake’s as it later became known. Fair bit of Castlehill there too. The exiles will love this picture. And the Ashy, the Coos’ Park, the Sawny and the Cliff. There were never that many cars in Firthview or any other street for that matter around Brucehill in the Fifties.
