Again in the 1932 Stirling index I have noted a Bartholomew Kidd, railwayman, at 54 Lower Bridge Street and a James Kidd, Grocer at 10 Bayne Street.
Cheers.

Thanks Fergie38
James Kidd was my grandfather and that address is where my father was born.
I believe the Bartholomew you mention was the youngest of my father's uncles

I think the houses in Broad St may have been renumbered at some time, possibly when the top of the town was being redeveloped. My great grandparents and subsequently Grandparents lived at 40 Broad St for many years, certainly from 1900's through to 1940's, but when my grandad died in 1955 his address was given as 23 Broad St. Tried to find no 40 a few years ago and seem to remember numbers don't go that high, but remember my dad pointing building  out to me when I was a boy and think these might have numbers in 20's now.
 By the way, useful Stirling directories from turn of 20th century are available from internet archive, eg for 1903 http://archive.org/details/cookwyliesstirli1903prin

Do you know if the Gillespie in that List was William as if so would be very interested in the date of the document as trying to find a William Gillespie who was a relative of a relative of mine Robert Gillespie.
P.S. my mum grew up on Broad Street so may know a bit more.

Hi,

My mother's granny lived in broad street and I can remember her talking about a parrot in a pet shop below.  Does anyone know the name or the owners of the pet shop?

Only pet shop I remember in Stirling (1950's , 60's) was Archie's in Baker St.
