To be even more precise, it's taken from Davy McClure's back gairden. (next door to Sparky Dunn). The gairden i much horticultural splendour it vistas upon, belongs to one Andy Griff, of "more chips Auntie Mary?", fame.
The steel hooses across from it belonged to the Cullens, and through the wa' fi thaim Ging Gang and Marks "grannie", Mairn & Jimmy Ure.
Nae photos I thi wee fair at the swing park, wi Foxy and Jay McLean kicking lumps oot i each ither fur a funt bike frame in the backgroond?

Ma grandma hud a big green parrot thit she eventually gave ti us. It wis like a zoo up the murrays in thay days. Jay McLean, him i the witches stain doon the wids

Yan,
Yur right enough, but their wis a couple o hoose switches whin we bid thair.
Yur grannie bid next door to this block. Starting in order, Griffith, MacIntosh, McClure, Dunn, Meikle, The German, Rooney, Jock the Dummy, Grant the Mechanic, Choo Choo Hay the greenkeeper, Gings, Bud Grant, Sam Jardine. The McClures and the Meikles did share the same hoose, but that wis when Boab McC stid in the fermers coatige nixt ti the cricket pitch.
Ah shoold ken, it wis me thit jumped er the back and stole yur grannies nickers aff the washin line. .

The colour photo is from about 1976, but I have a photo from about the early 1960s and my grandmother's standing in the same location.
