James and John Smith: Little Jimmy and Little Johnny"


They lived in Spotted Row.


Johnny used to deliver sand with his donkey and cart. The old cart need to be replaced so the two brothers made a new one in the cellar of Spotted Row. The only trouble was that it was too big to get it out through the trap door!


They moved to a lane near where Mountain Lane School is now. Jimmy played the organ both in the house and Saint Matthew's Church. They had a sister, Polly, who was six feet tall, whom I don't remember.
