Dave and Rab

"Here is a photo of myself and my younger brother, Rab, in the backgreen of 39 West Granton Road, taken around 1940.

I see my favourite horse is with me.

My mum used to tie me to the clothes pole 'cause I was a wanderer.  My brother, Rab, still talks fondly of the two Granton scallywags, and we are still the same today."

Thank you to Dave for also sending me several poems that he has written about growing up in Granton.
