Here's a photo I got off Paper shop owner Hughie Bennett's daughter Eveleen nearly 20 yrs ago. Eveleen had been evacuated to the Rowlands Gill area as was my aunt Cecilia Rodgers, but she's not on the pic for some reason.
We always knew the papershop as Winnie Gallaghers on Lyon St-Bewick St corner. Not sure of why if it was Bennett's .
Anyway my aunt said Eveleen rang home to say the man where they were kept wanting them to sit on his knee. Hughie and my granda Rodgers went straight there and brought the girls home. They were probably 12 yr olds in 1940.
