Elizabeth Bryden

“You never had an empty shop in these days”

Elizabeth Bryden grew up right on the High Street. The High Street was her stomping ground and she would often run around and play in the shops, calling up to her mother when she was hungry. She then moved to Maxwelltown and entered a more rural environment. She told me about her education during WW2 and the lack of teachers due to conscription. Teachers had been brought out of retirement to replace those sent to war and those who were not coming back.
