Thank you to David Blackburn who wrote:


"The downstairs house in this picture used to be occupied by Riordans.  Yes, that's the same family as Derek Riordan, the Hibs player.

Derek (Deek) was brought up in that house along with his sister Wendy, brothers Stevie, Mikey, John and James.  Upstairs was the Bretts and through the wall was the Stirlings and Anthonys."
