Trish Levido. What would you say that you played with most?

John Suhan. I was very lucky living in Clanalpine Street, within 100 yards it surrounded Sirius Cove, which of course, was even more open then, than it is now – I mean there is a complete Reserve from the Cove right round to the Zoo Wharf. In those days we’d play stalkings and some of them had Daisy air rifles, and we had bulls-eye competitions and catapults. There was a lot of activity in that area. Sometimes we’d scale the Zoo wall and have a look at the animals in the lower cages and scale out again. Great scalers, weren’t we?
