I was brought up in the Gorbals during the 50's and remember there were various schools at just about every street corner. Can anyone list what's left now? With a dwindling population and smaller families, there can only be a handful of schools in operation.

Charlie Submitted by: Charlie Glasgow, Scotland 04/04/09 Email: Not Supplied Long before I retired and moved to Largs from the infamous Hutchie E blocks, I regularly used a cafe on Monday nights in Bridge Street for a lovely meal. This was between 1980 to 1984. The cafe was on the same side as Brigge St underground going towards the city-centre. I'd imagine its no longer there. I often wonder what happened to the proprietor and his lovely waitresses.

As a boy in the early 60's my late father used to boast of doing a pub crawl all the way from Start of Bridge Street to Eglinton Toll near the Larkfield Bus Depot. I can remember the - So'wester? Office bar, Gordons, & Maxwell bars. But there must have been many more, particularly on the Railway side of Eglinton Street. And what a busy main road that was during the 60's!!

Karum take care buddy, bless all you " gorbalites" Submitted by: Jack Parker Kansas, USA 01/04/09 Email: sadienicol@peoplepc.com Just stumbled onto this Forum by default. Magnificent anecdotes from such a diversity of people. But spare a thought for dozens of us who resided in Govanhill, and attended the old St. Bonaventure's secondary school. Loads of us would trample down Polmadie Rd en-route to school in all weathers. Remember Vics Bakery and getting an illegal ride on the bin wagons heading up to Polmadie incinerator. Knew so many pals from the Oatlands and Gorbals, despite the dereliction all around us. Left Bonnies in 1971 and never saw the place again. That's life I suppose. Even Govanhill eventually changed!!

Submitted by: Billy Malcom Glasgow, Scotland 01/04/09 Email: Not Supplied FAO sandra/brighton Ditto. Three years ago I went up to glasgow and the same thing happened I met my brother in law and\his workmate in the centre of glasgow on a friday when they finished work and we went for a few pints we started in the crystal palace (midland st) and had three pints then we crossed over to McSorleys my brother in law got the first then when I got up and went to the bar after about 5 mins I got served there was only another 4 people in the pub as it was only abou 4-30 and I was dying with the flu I asked for three pints and she barred me when my brother in law and his mate asked the reason she said I was drunk they told her i was ill (they've not been back since) but we walked out anyway the following week in the quo vadis I went to see them and their mates as I do every time im up and the staff knew me, but this was a sat night and they had 4 young staff working when I went to the bar they just stood huddled in a corner talking after a wee while when I thought they had finished I asked for a round and the girl that came over to serve me she was about 18 and pregnant said I was barred. When my company heard this they all got up and started complaining she said I swore at her and was abusive as luck would have it one of the company was standing behind me to give me a hand with the drinks so wittnessed this and called her a lier and she nearly had a heart attack when she realised who I was with as they have all been drinking there for years. Again I walked out in disgust, the next day my brother in law asked me to go back to the pub as the manageress had it on video and caught the girl on the whole episode I think Im a smart dresser and a very polite and pleasant person and more so with woman, so I cant explain this I have drank all my years and never had one problem is it just in glasgow? as in england your served with a smile from both young and old (any way I saved some money not getting those rounds lol) we laugh about! it now and I get kidded about it, but it really hurted my feelings at the time as I just couldnt get my head round it never again!

But it was good old days with nothing. Submitted by: Doris McIntyre Slo, USA 16/04/09 Email: Not Supplied Hi Christina I hope all is well with you as I haven't seen a posting from you for a few days. Anyways I'll just prattle on in the hope that you will see my meanderings and maybe give you a wee smile. We were on the subject of clothes and how we can sometimes relate to our past by special outfits/items of clothing. I have always loved clothes and up and till a few years ago could never afford to buy what I would really like to wear-I've now well made up for that and can hardly get into my bedroom for wardrobes full of clothes, most of which ah cannie fit intae but that is yet another story. I was never to proud to go to the brigait or the barras and get a second hand bargain, wash and press it carefully. I lied through my eye teeth that the much admired garment was purchased from an upmarket shop in town!! Then There was always the odd bargain that dropped off the back of a lorry and intae my wardrobe. Wheesht don't tell anyone....... And then the practice of buying the odd pawn ticket wasn't to be sneered at. That could get you you a suit or coat that you couldn't possibly have afforded to buy. There was though a special thrill too that you got when buying something you definitely couldn't afford from say the likes of Goldbergs. I remember a cracker of a biege tweed suit with a red fox fur collar,(ye widnae get away with dead animal hinging fae your neck these days!)Bought that suit on a charge account-went starving and couldnie pay any bills for weeks to pay for it after the 3 month period for payment came arround. But it wiz worth every missed dinner and the stress of hiding the cost from my husband. Felt like a toff every single time I wore it and the fur collar was taken off and put on at least three coats thereafter.The provi check was a bit easier to budget for-loved gawn doon tae Reeta's in the Gallowgate and trying on all the latest style. Worked there for a year or so back in the late 60's. hid tae gie it up as I spent all my wages on clothes. Topless dresses were all the rage one year and of course Rita's had its own version... bright red with a wee front panel that you could have on or off- this fastened on to the neck of the dress to save the blushes. One particular coat that comes to my mind whenever I think about Reeta's the shop and Reeta herself. I sold dozens and dozens of this particular coat which made me very, very popular with the owner. It was a dark chocolate swing back and foam backed affair with a boat neck, fake leopard skin collar. Suited any age, any size. There must be a few wummen out there that made best friends with this coat??? Could we maybe get a belated friends reunited chain organised? That's it for now, Christina.

My name is David and I would like to help with the enquiry from Jay Teal regarding Dixon's Blazes and Alexander Street (Row). Ten Quid brought this to me attention. I work with Glasgow Museums on the M74 Project and I have a lot of information about the Lower English Buildings and Dixon's Blazes as well as Alexander Row. Much of this information has been given to me by people like Ten Quid who generously took the time to tell me about their past. So, Jay, if you would like some information then drop me an email (david@m74dig.org.uk) or come to Scotland Street School Museum and ask for me at the reception desk (your MUST bring a parent or guardian with you) and we will see how we can help you with your project. You can also visit the website of the dig at http://www.transportscotland.gov.uk/pro ... iron-works Also if there is anyone else out there who can help with my project and who has information about Dixon's Blazes then do not hesitate to get in touch. Thank you.
