Shared background

I moved to Yorkshire in 1975 and joined a tennis club. I soon found myself playing with a Scotsman, George, from Glasgow. I told him that my Mother had come from Glasgow but as she died in 1945 I knew little about her except that I had a book "The old Curiosity Shop" which had her name and address written in childish handwriting in it. George told me he had lived in Giffnock and when I looked at the address it was 17 Florence Drive, G. Much to our utter amazement George told me that he was born at 17, Florence Drive Gk! That is the most amazing coincidence you must agree!
