My Great Grandparents Wolfe & Yetta SHULANSKY (solanskey. solanski) Fur Merchant Shop. Eglinton Street. Glasgow. Their Children were ALexanda, Yetta (Leah) . Julius Figai(fanny) Olga, Harry, Max. Is there anyone out there that knows of the Fur shop in Eglinton Street. We have been searching for many years. Photos or information. We wonder if anyone in the community remembers their grandparents or greatgrandparents talking about the fur shop?
I was also wondering if anyone remembers The CAMPBELL FAMILY. Parents Sarah and Andrew CAMPBELL. children. MALCOM, DAVID (Davie), ANDREW (Andy). ERIC. STEWART. ROBERT. and SARAH (DECEASED AT A YOUNG AGE.) Glasgow.

FAO G3 I worked in the Irish house in Norfolk St. when I was 15, it was great, I cut my finger using the machine to slice cold meat, was off work for a week, I then worked in Patterson's bakery (next door) which was great too. I used to fry doughnuts in a great big basin, my boss told me to eat the ones that were crooked because they had to be perfectly round, I used a big stick to gather them out of the basin, best jobs I ever had, because I was never hungry, those were the days.

Norrie Ross, Rutherglen Road did in fact go as far as Gorbals Street. It may have been Old Rutherglen Road from Crown St onwards. But definitely went to Gorbals street.

I may be wrong but Rutherglen Road didn't even go to Gorbals Street as I am sure it became Old Rutherglen Road after Crown Street. No doubt I will be corrected if I'm wrong.

Garngad Bhoy. I remember taking part in a quiz @ Hutchie Bowling Club in the early 90s. From Rutherglen Rd at Shawfield starting from the Wee Mill pub to Rutherglen Rd @ Gorbals St. Note Gorbals St. as Rutherglen Rd didn't go as far as Eglinton St, there were approximately 27 pubs. This was disputed though, because some people added on the pubs at the corners of Dunmore St. and Gorbals St. the best men to name the pubs are Jim McDonald and Chic Connelly, they are in Hutchie Bowling club every Saturday night. Regards, Willie Long.

F.A.O. Richard Alexander re Mary - I did some research for someone in Canada looking for information on this family. I will check to see if I still have the records that I found. I can remember that Thomas Baird's butcher shop was where the post office was in Oxford Street and he lived in either Abbotsford Place or South Portland St. I lived in Oxford Street so passed on the information because I knew the area. I think Mary died from Flu.

My father Eddie Friel sadly passed away on 12th November 2011, he stayed at Silverfir Court, he was a well kent face, a caretaker he would help anyone who asked. I will be left with many good memories of being in his company as many a day there would be a furniture van outside his flat for a cup of tea and a blether. May god rest him.

They lived at that address for many years another relation John again was a helper at the St Vincent De Paul until his death around 10 years ago. Would Frances have had a sister Sadie married to someone named Austin ?
