Heriot Mount  -  Back Green

Thank you to Joyce Ritchie, daughter of Wullie Croal, for telling me:

"This photo was taken in the backgreen of No.6 Heriot Mount.  Us kids used to hold backgreen concerts while our mums held jumble sales in the corner.

Our audience used to sit on the steps leading up to the first level of the backgreen.

I spent the first 11 years of my life in Heriot Mount (1945-1956) and have so many lovely memories of it."
