I am looking for relatives of my grandad. His parents were Francis and Rose Boyle Nee Montford/Mountford. Addresses I have are 94 King Street, Tradeston in 1901, however, on the 1911 census they are shown to be living at 48 Franklin Street, Bridgeton and at time of death (around 1939) Rose was living at what looks like 21 Wesleyan Street, Calton. The children I have for them are Agnes Boyle born 1901, Rosanne Boyle circa 1903 and John Boyle who I believe died very young. Patrick Boyle, (who was my grandad) died in 1946 at number 10 1/2 Eglinton Lane, Gorbals. He was married to Mary Ann Boyle Nee Kilkie. Mary remarried and became Mary Ann Daly and died in 2001. If anyone feels they may be related or have any info then please contact me. I know it was a long time ago but one never knows. Many thanks in advance.

Looking for information on John MacLEAN and who knew him. Mother was Mary aka May Maclean and father was Duncan. I heard a lot of good old stories about my old man's mate. He left for Canada in 1967 and my grandma always mentioned Georgie Porgie and didn't believe they knew a lad by that name. Anyone that knew John Maclean and has stories or pictures, I'd love to hear from you.

Does anyone remember in the early 50's a woman who made teddy bears from old fur coats and hats? Think she lived in Mathieson Street. I had a huge black one, nearly as big as myself. Wonder if she ever started up her own business? Anne.

Some recollections as a kid growing up in the Gorbals. Going to The Bees picture house on a Saturday and sitting up in the balcony. Then on Saturday night watching the pubs coming out at nine thirty and everyone staggering home drunk. Going to the fish shop for sixpence of chips (that was our Saturday night supper) as my mum never cooked on a Saturday as she was at the pub door at five o'Clock waiting for the pub to open. I never realised that not all kids parents sat in the pub every Saturday night getting drunk. I tell my own kids now and they find it hard to believe, but I survived and don't have any regrets.

F.A.O. May in Australia - I also went to St Luke's from 1953 to 1960. I may be wrong but was Miss Bird not the headmistress? The headmaster WAS Mr McGoldrick and Mr Gordon was his deputy. Among the other teachers I remember were Mr Docherty and Miss McNally. The parish priest at that time was Father Conway and a relatively young priest who came later was Father Byrne. I am getting to the age now when things that happened in St Luke's playground are more vivid in my memory than what I did last week. Have to sign off now, my carer is coming with my Horlicks. Byeee.

F.A.O. Mart Getlin - I remember Getins shop. Was it painted red? It was at the corner of the Cobbled Lane and Cumberland Street. I also remember the shop at the corner - was it called Woolfsons and sold clothes? There was another shop along Cumberland Street going towards Lawmoor Street so maybe I am getting mixed up with the names. They used to sell babies fuzzy wool hats if I can recall. My dad was a miner and he chewed tobacco. He usually got his tobacco from Mr Nimmos shop - that was also on Cumberland Street going towards Salisbury Street on the lefthand side. He moved across to the corner of Surrey Street and the shop to this day still stands derelict. When he ran out of his "Baccy" we would have to go to Johnnie Christie's as I think he opened that bit later than the other shops. My dad would tell us when he was cutting the tobacco (Gallagher's Warhorse) it was called. We had to ask Johnnie for the bigger bit as he was not very good at judging the centre of the tobacco. He used a square block with a knife attached to it. Also the close next to Getlins - a girl in my class at school stayed up there. Her name was Ena McPhee and she had a sister Penny and also two older sisters who were dancers on the stage (cannot remember if it was the Metropole).


F.A.O. Sharon Pearson - There used to be a street artist who sat in Crown Street outside Hutchesons' Grammar School when I was young but I don't know if the man was blind. That would be in the 30/40's.

F.A.O. Mart Getlin - The old brain isn't working very well. Was your uncle's shop called Simpsons and there was also a shop called Toffs on Cumberland Street. The brain is getting addled with age - does anyone else remember these shops? Also the sweet shop or cafe that had the BIG bar of Toblerlone chololate in the window, think that was near Campden Street on the lefthand side of Cumberland Street going towards the Paragon picure house.

Can anyone help please? I'm trying to find out about past relatives from Glasgow. I discovered I had a grandad called Robert Pearson who was a BLIND street artist. He worked mostly outside St. Enochs train station way back in the 60's. You may think blind street artist? He used to feel with his hands and draw from memory apparently - very talented. I would love to know more about him. If anyone knows of any info please email me. Thank you, Sharon.

I remember there was a school in Gilmour Street; I went to the nursery there and also a swing park. I learnt to roller skate in Gilmour Street as the road was nice and smooth. There was a school in Oregan Street too...can't remember the name for either of them.

Can anyone remember the two Miss Joyces' that taught in St Francis Primary School in the 1950's?

I started school at St. Lukes in January 1956. The infant headmistress was Miss McClelland. I remember Miss Owen, Miss Bird, Miss McCarren, Miss Foley and Miss Rogers. I think there was a Mr Gordon upstairs. One of the priests was Father Brannon. I can't remember the name of the headmaster. Was it Mr McGoldrick? I left to go to school in Castlemilk in 1959. I've got a photograph of my 1957 St. Lukes class on Friends Reunited.

I grew up in the fifties in Lawmoor Street, the bit between Ballater Street and Rutherglen Road. During the long summer holidays when it was so hot you could dig your fingers in the tar on the pavement. There would occasionally be something to cheer you up. One such happening would be the rag man coming round. He would start by blowing a bugle to gather a crowd, then he would shout 'WHO LIKES CANDY' and the assembled mob would all answer 'WE DAE'. He would then say 'ah cannie hear ye' and we would shout out again. This would go on for several more times and then we would rush up to our houses and ask our mothers if there were any old rags to which our mas' would reply 'jist the wans ah'm weerin'. Some weans were more enterprising and went into their da's wardrobe and took out his coat or suit and exchanged it for a really valuable plastic trumpet or mooth organ. It was not unknown for women to chase after the ragman's cart and remonstrate with them saying things like 'gies ma man's jaiket back ya liberty takin swine'. Happy Days.
