Comments


In the early 1970's I used walk after school (Fraser High) all the way from Ellicott Road, across the Aberfoyle Street gully bridge to Hall Street to get my library books. You daren't make a sound in the library! Many years later I joined the staff at the St Andrews Library which was originally the Frankton Library.
