Tomorrow is the 107th birthday of Nellie Gembles.  Born on 30th January 1902 in Causewayside, Nellie has been a Southsider all her life. 

 Aged 12 when the First World War started, she left school at 14.  In 1929 she married Howard at the Pleasance Church and they lived in St Leonard's Street.   Her husband died in 1992 and it was only in 2005 that Nellie moved into the Cameron Park Nursing home in Peffermill Road.
