Hello - my name is Helen Watson nee Hunt from Lawmoor Street. We left when I was 12. I can still remember the happy times growing up in the Gorbals. I went to St. Francis School. I would like to contact my school friends Mary Docherty and Agnes Bradley. I am not sure of married name. Agnes moves to Germany but I believe Mary still lives in the Gorbals. I would be greatful for any info. We all turned 60 this year and it would be good to catch up. Thank you. I love reading about Gorbals and if anyone out there remembers me or my family, we stayed at 351 Lawmoor Street, it would be good to here from you.

F.A.O. Georgie Porgie - I liked your post, made me laugh. I used to sell "Coal Brickets" on a Saturday morning in the Gorbals. I remember one time in Thistle Street, Lizzie Bailey the bookie gave me a ten pound note as I went to get her change I was offskie, I kept the money. I was 15 years old but still feel guilty after all these years but it was hard work. Do you remember queuing up at the bakers in Crown Street at the Poles bakery they were the days. Aw the best Georgy.

Hi there, when I was a wain in 29 Hospital Street, there was a poem that stuck with me. It goes like this: "come a riddle, come a riddle, come a rot tot tot, a wee wee man, in a red red coat, a scarf in his hand and stone down his throat, come a riddle come a riddle, come a rot tot tot." now my grandkids say it.

Looking for my relatives. They came from Thistle Street the Gorbals - my father was James Moore Born May 1929 he had a brother Jack & William and sisters Annie and Peggy. I know Peggy emigrated to the US had two daughters Rene and Barbara, the last I ever heard of my cousins was a Christmas card from Rene in 1969 from her, her husband Roy (or Ron) and her son Stephen. That was a long time ago.....would be lovely to hear from them.

Was there a St. Luke's Catholic School for boys back in the late 1930's in the Gorbals region? My dad once told me the name of the school and I'm sure he said St. Luke's, but I can't find it on websites nor can I find any history of it online. Any information would be most helpful!

New book coming out next year once again it is about the Gorbals. Starts off about Glasgow's poverty after the war and how it produced gangs, she-beens, drunken violence, goes on about Benny Lynch Cowboy Mc Cormack, says Glasgows Gorbals was a moderate working class society, until the Irish moved in, explains that they were the ones who instigated gangs in Glasgow, gives all the names, according to the book all gangs were Irish catholic, they say it destroyed the whole complex of Glasgow and its people, the excerts of the book are in the Mitchell library, Anyone on here any views on this? Its very calculating stuff, although I must wait to read the whole book, there are some interesting points, notably Boyle, Wilson, Friel, notorious gangsters were all from the same place and there heritage was as the book says. Happy New Year to everybody.

My sister Ruth Dodd and I are looking for information re the death of our great grandfather James Thomas Warbrook/e in 1896 or there about in Dublin Ireland. He was killed by a shaft from a horse drawn wagon owned by Lipton Tea while he was in charge of a horse drawn wagon owned by Arnotts Biscuits. We have just recently found out the driver of the tea wagon was charged with manslaughter. Other family members we are looking for are Lilly May Cooney, she come over to Australia for a family wedding then seems to have dissapeared from the face of the earth. Neil Gow & son Nathaniel renowned for their music in the 1800, and Margaret Gow she married Adam Pearson Armstrong, the latter landed on the West Australian shore with six children but no wife. Adam opened Ravenswood and Delkieth in WA. If anyone can shed some light on any of the above mentioned names we would be over the moon with joy. Many thanks Elsie.

I attended Camden Street primary along with my brothers John and Eddie and sister Margaret. My best pal was Andy Barbour who lived a couple of closes away from me and I think he lived with his auntie? Anyway we were best pals and in those days when your family moved that was it.
