  1. This is an amazing picture – Mrs. M. Temblett, (Molly) the nursery school teacher and owner was my dear grandma who passed away in 2005 at the age of 92. She always spoke extremely fondly of all the children, and regaled us with brilliant, funny stories of what the children would get up to! My mum, now herself 71, was delighted to find this photo that she’d never actually seen, if there is any way Mr. Wilson would be so kind as to let us order a copy for my mum and her two sisters, ( or indeed any other pictures of Molly, my grandma, or the nursery in any way!) I’d be very grateful indeed. If anyone knows how I could contact Mr. Wilson regarding this, I would so appreciate it!


    • I am interested to find out about the Temblett sisters Sheilagh Tess as I stayed at Richmond Road with that great family in the early 60’s. I am now 76. Mike Benzie Aberdeen


      • Hiya Mike, what a surprise to hear!
        What would you like to know exaclty?
        I’m Tessa’s daughter Sophie; my aunt and mum are both very well, Aunty Shell is probably about your age and my mum is 73 this year.
        I’d be very happy to direct message with you if that’s possible on here? I’m not too sure how to navigate around this place!
        All the best to you,


  2. I am the proud owner of this house now, having lived here since 2015. This is some fantastic history! I would be most grateful if any other pictures are available of either the interior / exterior.
