2003, Extract from email. Helen Chalmers (email tba ), Toronto , Canada.
visited your site again......I am so proud to have born in Bridgeton...when
I look at the letters from all over the world from persons who lived
through the war years , through poverty, unemployment, poor housing, little
nutrition, school dinners and schoolboard clothing....had no toys other than
balls, peevers, girds and cleeks and the dirt and broken glass you played
shops with.....but had the good fortune to have had wonderful neighbours who
shared your joys and sorrows and anything else that they had....We lived
through hard times....and still emerged with wonderful memories and only too
happy to return to our roots......
