To inform many on the site of the passing of my dad, Sandy Bowie. He was 79 and came from Kidson Street. Many know him. He was a true "Sou Sider" with the wit and joviality born of the Gorbals. Hard working and helpful to friends and strangers alike.

F.A.O. Jim - thank you for the picture - it was a great one. I was sad to hear about Kathleen Scanlon. I do remember her May Day Queen - she was beautiful with her rosy cheeks and dark curly hair and we all walked in the parade. I mailed the picture to Artie but forgot to copy the address so he will give it to me over the phone. Again, mucho grasias Doris Austin aka McIntyre.

Oh what memories - concerts in the backs, climbing the dykes and playing aleevoy - The boys brigade bands coming along Rutherglen Road collecting money for old folks with the shout "be good to your granny now" and folks throwing money from their window! Went to wee Bonnies then big Bonnies then on to Commercial Course at St.Gerard's, Govan. Played competitive netball at big Bonnies in the evening. Always older boys lying in wait to give us a bit of hassle when we came out but we had friends in hight places and our knights in shining armour were waiting to escort us most nights away from the building safely-namely Jimmy Boyle, Bennie Slowey and friends. (Bennie was in my class at wee Bonnies and I was a friend of Martha Slowey.) I remember being impressed that Benny (who lived in a lowdown house next to the school in Alice Street) used the window to step in and out the house - never went in the close to use the door. Does anyone remember the headmaster Mr.Ribchester and the notorious belt happy Miss Docherty (three of the belt for being late)!! Our P7 teacher, Mr.Dawson, had a great sense of humour. And I've just remembered P1 teacher Miss McCartney had a lovely big rocking horse in the room and you got a shot on it on Fridays. Does anyone know the whereabouts of Carol McClure, John Marley, Eileen McManus, William Fagan, Mary Murnie, Camelia Carruana, Marlyn McCunn, Hugh McQue, Anne Brown and others? What about when show came to Glasgow Green and all communications and important telephone calls made from two red telephone boxes - one at private bowling green and other at Polmadie Road corner opposite the Piccadilly Cafe!!

F.A.O. Ian Cleary - I wish you'd mind your own business. This is why people should stick to the point of this site: ".....stories and experiences of living and working in the Gorbals." I think Billy Malcolm was talking utter garbage, Enoch Powell was not a racist. I agree with eveything he said, Mr Powell was a British Patriot. He helped the indiginous people of these islands immensly, especially the Unionist People Of Ulster, when he was an MP there. In conclusion, you don't mention politics or anything else that someone doesn't agree with, then we can get on with what this site is about: sharing our experiences of the Gorbals, not our political opinions.

Can I say that Biggiantweeman and Billy Malcom are correct - there's no room on this great site about us folk from the Gorbals to mention politics like what Mick Gallacher said. To me and 99% of the Gorbals punters know a great saying and stuck by it. We are all Jock Tamsons Weans. In saying that, I don't think Mick meant it the way it was put. If you read this Mick, did you have a wee brother named Bobo? If so, he was a great pal of mine. Last time I saw him was when he stayed in Castlemilk. For myself, I had the great privilege of taking part in the two armed forces days on June the 25th in Edinburgh then the 26th in Glasgow along side my regimental association off the Royal Scots Greys .I was overwelmed when marching from Holland Street through the city to George Square then after the parade was invited into the Glesca City Chambers for free drink and a lovely hand buffet. If anybody knows me on here, send me an email and I will send 7 photos that were taken on both days. Alex ex. Warwick Street then Nicholson Street, Buchan Street Primary then Adelphi Terrace - left there in 1961.

Also, I bumped into the lovely Redhead that I took to the school leavers dance at Adelphi Terrace. Not seen her for 40 years and she still looked good. Her name was Patsy King known as Pat. She managed to get me a school photo that we were in taken in Buchan Street Primary School. I was 6 or 7 at the time. Must try and get in on the pc to see who on here was in it also. Again, that's what this fantastic site is all about - what we did and got on with days gone by in the good AULD GORBALS.

Hi. I was wondering if anyone remembered the McGarvey family who lived at 38 Hallside Street in the 1950s? I think the mother, Mary, died young in childbirth and was wondering if anyone had any information about what happened to the rest of the family.

Hi there - anyone out there know of my grandmother or her family? She was Lizzie Tulloch, married a young guy called Private Jas Brown who was killed in the war. She then had a son who went by the name of John Campbell, then she married a fellow named Harrington. They lived at 157 Waddel Street. Would be nice to have someone put the jigsaw into place for me. My mother was brought up in 159 Waddel Street.

Anyone know a guy called John campbell who lived at 8 St. Johns Street in the 1920s?

Hi, I am looking to see if anyone has information on a family event which happened to my grandparents in the Gorbals between 1960-1963 I think? There was a house fire in a tenement building and my gran and her 3 sons (one of which was my dad) were saved by the locals and I believe one man who rescued them was given a bravery award. This story was on the front page of a newspaper when it happened with my gran on it. I am looking to see if anyone remembers this event and if they could give me more information? Thanks.
