Just received the sad news Saturday 23/07 that Pat Columb had just passed away. Pat was a true Gorbals man through and through. Pat was a great Celtic fan - you'll never walk alone RIP.

Searching for my father Angus McFarlane - I wish to get in contact with him. He was born 10/05/1948 and lived at 134 Naburn Street from 50's to 60's (I'm guessing.) He has a brother called John McFarlane and a sister. If anybody can help me trace his whereabouts, I'd be so grateful to hear from you!

Hi, I was born in Devon Street in 1960. I have a sister Patsy and a brother Billy - we lived at number 39. Our neighbours were Molly and Jimmy Wardrope and Christine Muir lived above us. We went to Abbotsford Primary School. Got sweeties from Mary Perry's wee sweet shop. I went to school with a David John Foley/Follie - he lived a few doors down from us. On the corner was the Devon Bar. Does anyone remember my mum or dad Jean and John Collow or any of our family? I am also looking to get in touch with David - if anyone knows him or his whereabouts - I can remember his grandad being there for us. Submitted by: Margarette (Prosser) nee Collow

Any information would be much appreciated. Thank you.

After reading about the death of Leslie Mason, last of the Gorbals boys in the iconic photo, I was checking out the photographer and came across this - Hayes Peoples History: 1948 - The Forgotten Gorbals our history - hayes.blogspot.com. It's quite a good read.

F.A.O. Davie Graham. Hi Davy, glad you got my sausage recipe ok. Yes I do know a place called Alpine here in San Diego. It's about an hours drive from where I live. I do not go there very often - it gets very hot in the summertime and cold in the winter. It's not a very big place. If you cook the sausage, put them on the grill or the barbecue - they are much better than fried. Take care for now.

F.A.O Julie Mason. I saw the news that your dad had passed away. I came from Nicholson Street and went to St. Johns as well. I went there in the early 60's so I wouldn't have known the family. Always loved that iconic photo of your dad and his wee pal George Davis. Sorry for your loss.

F.A.O. Billy Johnson - what a lovely surprise and a sad one too. Eddie was my brother. We lived at 31 1 up - my God would you believe it, Eddie passed away in 2000 with back cancer. God help him, I miss him terribly. I think about him every day. He was a good brother. He took a back operation and went down hill. Will get this to you and we can have a chat about Hallside Street in my next message to you. Try e-mailing my son - he is on Facebook. He has an Arsenal badge or send me your e-mail address - love to talk to you. Take care - hope to hear from you soon.

This notice is in relation to the famous photograph of the 2 wee ragamuffin Gorbal Boys taken by photojournalist Bert Hardy. The boy on the left, with dark hair, is my father Leslie Mason and he and we are very proud of this photo and of the history that surrounds it. But also this is to inform you that unfortunately my father passed away on Thursday 7th July 2011. I am not sure if anyone out there remembers him from the Gorbals, but the Mason family lived in Nicholson Street. He went to St John's Primary and later the family moved to Bridgeton.

F.A.O. Joe Bhouy - The game you refer to when Jim Baxter had the ball up his jersey was the 1965 League Cup Final. Rangers won the match 2-1 with both goals coming from Jim Forrest. Baxter put the ball up his jersey as the teams left the field at the end of the game and referee Hugh Phillips thought the match ball had been lost until photos appeared in the press of Baxter with the ball hidden up his jumper. He didn't get booked as far as I'm aware.

Joe Bhouy - In the 1963 Scottish cup final replay Jim Baxter played a blinder. At the end of the game he stuck the ball up his shirt so he could give it to Ian McMillan as it was his last game, but the SFA made him give it back. Just being a***h***s as usual. BTW, Rangers won 3-1 I think. Brand got 2 and Wilson got 1.

Anyone settle an arguement? Jim Baxter played for Rangers. During one match he got the ball under his shirt, how did he do this? Did the ref. book him? What happened? Come on you oldies!!

F.A.O. Rab Kidd - thanks for bringing back memories of great days!!Yes I remember you. I have only seen Donny - that was 3 years ago. I am going to find him and get him to contact you on here. There was a big guy who hung about with us - tall and lanky with glasses, do you remember his name? I used to fancy Donnie's sister - not the dark haired one the other one with fairish hair. They were cousins with Donnie and Ronnie McKinnon who played for Rangers. The Celtic Chairman stayed up your close on the 1st floor, is that right? Speak soon my old pal, your friend Andy.

Hi Margaret from the USA. Looks like I have two girlfriends on the go now!! I have just sent Agnes a wee note today as well. Yes I knew Lawmoor Street very well - I used to cut through the pen further up to go to Orchard Street did you know that? I have to save my pennies up Margaret to get to Scottish towns outside Glasgow. Going abroad would take me years to save up. I am on my own and I just about get by. Anyway the sights I saw on the bus to Inverness where like a dream, especially the mountains with streams running down them, the Lochs and the beautiful colours of the countryside. Even the sheep wink at you ha ha. Take care for now and keep in touch.

Hi Agnes!! Great to hear from you - hope your okay now. Keep smiling even when everything gets you down. I have been enjoying myself recently -just last weekend I got on a bus to Inverness - what a journey! Well worth it. The beautiful Scottish scenery was breathtaking!! We stopped a couple of times on the way. I was talking to some man and wumin about the beauty of the loch - they were just nodding their heids, nae wonder - they were fae Russia and couldnae speak a word of English ha ha. I went to a lovely wee church on the Sunday in Dingwall - that was good. The choir came from Romania, lovely singers, then we all had free tea and biscuits after the service. It was a great and I had a very peaceful time, but back again I miss my wee room in Auld Glesga but it's good to get about. Now I'll be saving up for my next get away ha ha. You take care and may God Bless you.

For Anne Hannon of London. Hi Anne - you asked what number I lived in Hallside Street? I lived firstly at no. 14, a single end with the door in the street. It was next to a shop. I then moved to my gran's house at no. 28 low down. I remember 2 shops opposite us. I had a friend called Eddie McNight who lived one up. I don't know how old you are or when you lived there. I was born in 1943 and left in 1956 when I was 13 to go to a place called Blackhill(bad mistake) but I'll always remember my time in Hallside Street, and it's exciting to talk to someone from my street at last. I had 3 more brothers and 1 sister born there. I've been back many times reliving my memories with lots of good times. I tried emailing but no luck. I'm on Facebook with lots of family and friends - try emailing me. Well, it's nice talking to you. Hopefully we'll talk again. So take care. CYA Billy x

F.A.O. Davie Graham. Have a recipe for you for Scottish Sausages. One pound ground meat, one cup bread crumbs, one teaspoon ground coriander, quarter teaspoon black pepper, half teaspoon ground nutmeg, one teaspoon salt, quarter cup of water. Mix well and press into meat loaf pan, refrigerate, slice as you want to use. I got this recipe from the Sunday Post years ago. Good luck.
