F.A.O. Patrick Cryans..Frances Theresa Cryans lived at 130 Sandyfaulds St and was my mum's bridesmaid in Sept 1940 (she was probably aged around 20 then) and she was also my godmother. I haven't seen her since the early 60's. Just wondered where she moved to and if she had any family.

Hi, on behalf of my newly discovered half cousin in Queensland, Australia, I am searching for her half-brother, Joseph Scott Parkinson. She believes he was born in Glasgow in 1933 and grew up there. There were also three half sisters, Kathleen Audrey born 1934, Irene born 1937 and Joyce Elaine born 1939. Their parents were Joseph Thomas Parkinson and Kathleen Parkinson nee Scott. My cousin has recently been told that Kathleen's sister Nellie was a murder victim at her shop in Glasgow in the 1930s/40s, unfortunately we dosn't know her married name. Does anyone remember or know of any members of this family. My cousin emigrated in 1969 when she was 16 and would be so pleased to have news of her British relatives.

For all those on the site who are interested in St Bonaventure's primary school in Oatlands. The Mitchell Library holds copies of Glasgow school log books. It is not a complete collection but Wee Bonnies is there. There's a restriction on dates but I personally spent a great afternoon reading thro' years 1948 to 1955 when myself and my sisters attended. If you can get easily to the Mitchell this is only one of their great resources.

The dark nights are creeping in again, I remember the gas lights in Thistle street every time winter comes round, some times a wee man, or a big man, or even a giant man would come round to lit the gas lights he was always scary looking and untidy, and not a brain in his head well you had to be daft to be walking about in the wee hours. God bless Billy Malcom great guy he is.

Hi Jimmy from Australia, do you mean pease brose? When I was young my mother used to buy it from the dry goods shop at the corner of Cumberland Street and Main Street in the Gorbals. It was dry peas flour and I think it was mixed with hot water to make a sort of porage/porridge. I loved it then but don't know if I still would. Missing the patter from all the oldies who used to be on the site.

Robin ( Bombpipe ) I last saw Matt McShane in P.R. West when I was delivering beer in that area with Tennents about 8 years ago or more, Phil Kilpatrick who was in our primary school Buchan st. He went on to Strathbungo. He joined the regular army along with Neil McSkeane, he did really well did 24 years in the R.A.P. Corps came out a Captain and stays in Bampton England. He works for the Government helping troops that come out off the forces and have been wounded. I'm very proud off him. He used to rake the middens up Victoria Road and also sell sticks round the doors with me. His Da was a Polmadie Lamp Lighter and his Maw was the ticket lady in the picture house in Crown St. May tell BoBo I was asking for him. Freda and my other 4 sister's are all doing well. You would remember my young brother John. Sadly he died at 42 in the Victoria Infirmary, just went in for a simple op on the Tuesday and was dead on the Friday a germ got into the wound. Enough said about that hospital.
