FAO Magi I worked in Twomax when I left school got married out of there in 1956 was 21. Worked in the 5th floor as a message lassie then moved to the 2nd floor and was a buttonhole machinist but learned other machines except the overlocking. Love it and there were a lot of great people in it. Wee Bridget was my supervisor along with Jenny Anderson who went to Austtralia then came back. Mary Blair was also one of my supervisors. There are a few others on this site who worked in it. One of the Gorbals books has a photo of it were you see some of the workers coming out. Passed by it on Wednesday going round to St. Lukes chapel had a lump in my throat looking at it, I think it is now a social services building for helping people.

I was born in the gorbals in 1952 in mathieson st, does anybody remember my maw or da Wullie and Susan Canning. I remember from childhood the big clydesdale horses that used to pull the coal. the paragon picture house ,i so my first film in there it was the beast with the five fingers, and i remember old wullie the doorman at the picture house with his uniform he looked like a colonel in the army. Wee Mary at the corner of mathieson running through her close and being cheeky to her and ma maw calling up to explain myself you can guess what happened after that. Also the wee shop at the corner were you could get a drink of ginger for a penny out of A chipped cup that everybody used. These are just some of the things i recall . Also you could play for hours out in the street and your maw would never be worried about you canny do that now. We may have been poor but we were loved.

To Margaret McGettigan, I don't know if the wee man at the top of Moffat St. was called 'Irish Mick' as we just knew him as the 'wee man.' We teased the life out of him, pinging his door bell and then hiding down the front of the counter so that when he came through he couldn't see us. We would jump up and give him the fright of his life then dash out the door again. Do you remember Mr. Boyce the coal man that stayed at the top of Sandyfauld st. whose wife made candy balls which we would get if we took the coal money up to their door? They were sticky enough to pull the teeth out of your head.

I have just found this web page, amazing, I left the gorbals in 1960 at the age of 8 my family moved to Cathcart, Glasgow. Reading about the picture halls, Amelia has missed out the George in Crown St, going toward Old Rutherglen Road. My brothers used to take me and my friend and we would into the shop next door, it was called Lennox for a Jubilee and all that was was a big junk of ice with a dash of flavouring, but when your a kid it was great. I stayed at 209 Florence St, great big wide streets, great memories even though I left so young. Lots of my family stilled stayed there but now have all sadly passed away. My sister in law and cousins still live in Cumberland St, but big big changes. Mary Lorimer (nee) Taylor - Mums (nee) Byrne

I have just watched the stirling faulds flats on Gorbals street being raised to the ground, I remember watching them being built. Over the years they became such an eyesore, also the Norfolk court flats witch are due to come down soon, I knew people who moved into the flats when they were first built, they were lovely. But every time I have passed them over a number of years I have thought of all the people visiting that part of Glasgow or beyond, what a horrible, dirty, site for anybody passing on the bus or by car. Its a shame that a lot of people lived very happily in these flats for years, but then it just takes a few bad tenants to move in and the place is a slum. Even when I lived in the Gorbals a lot of years ago people took pride in the homes. I hope whatever is built in place of the flats will be a pleasure to look at for many years to come.

Hi there I'm an old Gorbals x guy (3 Ballater St) I am a singer down here, I use mini discs I have hundreds of songs but some are difficult to get hold of. Do any singers in Glasgow have the following songs "My son calls another man daddy" or " Wedding bells " both by Hank Williams "I want just the music, not Hank singing as I have them. I sing under the name of Jack Burns, Maggie Burns was my mother's maiden name, from Orchard St, Oatlands any other Burn's remember her, I was born at No 12, I've got a photo of the close in an old Glasgow book. Keeping my fingers crossed someone will respond.
