Longhope Freemasons

Maybe 1950
Some local men from Longhope St Colm 1022 Freemasons.
Left to right ? Jimmy Simpson ????? Could it be Jackie Norquoy? Stanley Thomson and Issac Moar.
Seems to look a bit like Lizzie, Harriot and Gena Taylor's house on the right.

No I had forgotten that John but we all knew the real Santa just arrived on the 25th Dec! Think I was about 10 when you being an year older and a bit more worldly wise put me straight on that myth one day in class.:-)

Ha Ha. Do you mind the time that peedie McCloud made us both stay in and write 100 lines. "John's answers the same as Beryl's" "Beryl's answers same as John's" the blooming spelling mistakes got us caught out! Good times though and he even let us take the record player out in the playground to belt out little Eva's "The Loco-Motion" and another one "Telstar" all courtasy o' Jimmy Pirie and his trips in to town, he always brought a record home for Fiona. Whenever I hear them old songs it brings back memories of the South Walls School.
