F.A.O. Joseph Meechan - hi Joseph. Many happy memories of uncle Joe & aunty Cathy. (lol). How you doing? Long time no hear. Hope you and you're family are well. The square in Pollokshaws Road is now a garden area. Your parents and my mum would have loved it. It's beautiful now. Every time I hear a Queen song it reminds me of you blaring your tunes upstairs at Pollokshaws Road,lol. Take care. Caroline Walker.xx

My mother grew up in the Gorbals as a child. Her mother was Elizabeth Joyce. Her father was James Joyce. Her mother worked in a sewing factory, as did her daughters: Margaret, Mary, Betty, Agnes and Isabel. Looking for information about the family and what it was like to live there after WW II. Thank you.

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!

I have posted a few times before. I was always told my dad who was born at Thistle Street in 1943 was fathered by a Robert MacFarlane. This is not the case. After DNA testing, I find the name of his father is Barclay, possibly Robert Barclay or Barkely.Aanyone know of them? He was born around the 1920s. I know this is a long shot but here goes.

Hi-Ya Margaret Davidson - it was so nice to hear from you, thank you, I don't get many lassies nowadays to talk to. Agnes was my last friend on here but she has deserted me! Ha ha. Well would you believe this, I had a pen pal years ago called Chuck Taylor from Alpine, San Diego. He once came to Scotland and I bought him a drink over the toon - he says I can come to visit him, but I could never afford it anyway. Tell you what I did a few weeks ago - I went to Largs and spent a lovely day there. I visited the Church and met some nice folk there. Are you from the Gorbals? Well Georgy was a bit of a lad in the old days. They made a song about me kissing all the girls and mading them cry! Thanks again for your thoughts. Bless you.

It's me again. My grandfather sold his ice-cream outside the Paragon in the late 1920s. Has anybody got photo's of the section of Lawmoor Street between Cumbie and Rutherglen Road? Also, has anybody heard of the Slowey's? Thomas Slowey (the father) died in Solanika in the first world war. As I said in my first letter, it's got to be your grannie or grandad. It might ring a bell. CAIO.

Hello my name is Loudon Fraser. In my earliest years I lived on Kidston Street. 1944 my family moved to Aikenhead Road between Hollybrook Street and Hickman Street. I attended Calder Street Primary, then I was evacuated with my younger sister and brother to Comrie, Perthshire in 1942. After that, I went to Victoria Primary School, then on to Queen's Park Senior Secondary. Moved to Priesthill in 1948. I emigrated to Vancouver, Canada in April 1958, sailing from Greenock on the Empress of Britain (anyone out there know of anyone who emigrated on that trip, especially one young girl from Skirving Street, Shawlands.) I then moved to the USA in 1961. I am now retired and take time to. Been married to the same girl for close to 48 years.

F.A.O. Georgy Porgy - You don't have to stay in Scotland to enjoy your mince and tatties and your square sliced sausage. I make mince all the time here at home, and I also make my own sausages and sausage rolls. My kids love the sausage rolls, but they won't put mince in their mouths - they hate it. As for your Scotch Whiskey, you can get all the same whiskey over here as you can at home, so come on Georgy, get out of Scotland and do a little travelling. It will broaden your mind. You only go around once and you are a long time dead.

Hi, I'm a newbie and wonder if any of my old pals are out there. I lived at 6 Gilmour Street until we moved to Castlemilk in 1958. Went to Oatlands Primary, then Adelphi from '56 til '60. I was known a 'Boondy' and some of the crew were: Joe Cunningham, Danny Macbeth, Arthur Bryden, Gerry Rowatt, Margret Gizzy, Greta Green, the Emsleys, Cathy and her 11-boys Hughie, Eddie, Tam etc. They were our next-door neighbours. We all lived in 'single-ends'. My Maw and Da were Polly and Andy. We lived through the wall from Broons Pub on the corner of Gilmour Street and Rutherglen Road. I had brothers John and James, sisters May, Janet and Helen. It would be great to hear from anyone who remembers us!! This is a great site. Thanks!!

Last month I returned to the Gorbals for the first time since 1989. I was gobsmacked when I walked over the bridge from Cathcart Road, Govanhill. What a transformation at the Gushet & Dixons Blazes lands. Fine new buildings and clear roads. I never thought I'd witness such wide scale changes at that area of the Gorbals!! I was brought up in Abbotsford Place having lived there between 1957 to 1972. I think people should be proud the way Gorbals has changed from crime and poor housing to a modern district which will stand for a long time as a credit to all who helped design and regenerate the area. Give me the present day Gorbals anytime!
