I recently posted about the history of Fernslea Avenue. Here’s another photo of that street in the mid 1970’s.
To put the picture into context, it’s looking west towards Dechmont Hill. On the right is now St Blanes Primary School entrance. On the left is Chestnut Grove. The Orlit’s built homes haven’t changed much, the view very recognisable, apart from the occasional modern wheelie bin and new car. Perhaps the most variable feature is the size of the tree, which still there today is more than double the size it was in the 70s.
Some families who used to live in this location include the Cunninghams, McGuires, Paterson, Hunter, Lafferty, Murphy, Traynor and Henderson. (and may well still do)
