About this recording

On a recent visit to Wick, Graeme Mackay shared some of his childhood memories of living in ‘Kelvin’ a house on the corner of Coronation Street. He not only describes members of his family, neighbours in Coronation Street and many of the businessmen of Wick, but also recalls the cars they drove. He talks about going to the cinema, playing billiards and visiting relatives in Canisbay, where he exchanged fish from Wick, for eggs and damson jam.
