I like coming to the Palm House because it’s an oasis.
My mum and dad used to bring me here, and to the museum, when when I was a kid. I remember the first time I saw the mummy, everyone runs out screaming!
Happy memories like. A lot’s changed. I remember the wee hot house. There used to be fish, big carp and goldfish, you know!
Actually, my mum has photographs of my granny in here as a kid, that would have been in Victorian times like.
My granny used to come up here, she used to be a hawker as they used to call it. She used to come round, rag and bone.
She used to push the hand cart around Stranmillis and Rugby Avenue, so.
I just work in the fruit market mate, you know! Boucher Road. So, I’m used to greenery, so I’m sick of looking at these things.
