I did find a relative of my mother's on this site and was hoping I could find some background on my father's side. My father was Robert Gerard Scott, baptized at St. Columba Catholic church. He was born in 1908. My grandparents were Thomas Scott and Mary Fletcher. They lived at 6 Hopehill Road. Can some of the old timers from Gorbals remember this family. My dad went to St. Francis School. He came to Canada around 1926 where he married my mother Margaret Kane(who also was from the Gorals. Absolutely any information on my Dad's family would be fantastic. Thanks, Cathy

FAO of Alec Bowie, hi Alec my apologies for any offence caused, i will just clarify things first, I can assure you Grannie Elliott was not a Mochan, i can vaguley remember her in Thistle St when i was young the next time i saw her was when she was dying in the Royal Infirmary about the late Eighties early Nineties, i was with Auntie Sheila, i saw some comments written by you about Charlie Elliott, i turned up at his house in Newton Mearns with my sister one day she wanted to introduce me to Charlie, i have no recollection whatever of him, i have of all of the rest of my Aunts and Uncles from the Elliotts, He was not at home so we left a messgage and a card for him, my sister Mabel knew him well, she used to live with him. as far as Jeannie Dick is concerned i believe that when she died young Gilbert Elliott was left everything she had, i kept in touch with uncle Gilbert and uncle Billy over the last few years the family had my contact details but in both cases they both died over the last 18 months yet no one informed me until after the event, in both cases i was told by Gilbert Elliott by way of, Billys Dead, that was it. I remember your mother very well with great affection, i remember she used to come on a Sunday night and bath us kids after my mother Die, i do not know what happened Alec but we were not allowed to go near my mothers family after she died, that was 1950 hence the reason we lost contact with all, i searched Glasgow for my mothers grave and found it in Cardonald cemetary, i have had a lovely stone put on her grave, i intend to come to Glasgow in the next few weeks, i am 61 how old are you.

I am searching for information regarding Kathleen Bernadette Madden who lived at 125 Hospital Street in the late 1940s - early 1950s. She was part of an Irish family and had several (?) sisters and a father living. I believe that her mother had died by 1951. I have reason to believe that she may have worked at the whiskey bond. She would have been in her late teens around 1950 (17-19). If anyone knows Kathleen or any of her family and can provide more information or put me in touch, I would very much appreciate it.

FAO Katy of Glasgow Yes I was at James Marleys funeral. I lived next door to Letty and James in Moffat St. It was Lettys sister Isa (God Rest her Soul) who took my oldest girl a walk in her pram (who is now 47) left her outside Bennets the dairy and was away for ages somewhere else. She walked past my window and I shouted to her "where was the wean" she let out a roar and run down to the pen at Moffat St.to get her. By this time the wean had S... in her nappie and it had come of and all the S... was over the wean and the pram. I think I was the talk of Moffat St. for ages after that. I could have choked her at the time but after it we all laughed about it HA!HA! Amelia

FAO: Alex Bodie. Hi Alex. Thank you for your e-mail about The State pitures in Kings park. I remember it well, I lived in toryglen, a 10 mins walk from it ,and I spent a lot of time there. When it closed, and reopened as a Bingo hall, I went there to. The other piture house in Kings Park was The Florida Park in Ardmay Cress. It is now The Beechwood Pub. As I said before there was a story about a ghost in the pub was of a girl who worked in the cinema in the 60s. On the outside wall of the pub you can read the story of the ghost. The pub is a 2mins walk from Hamden Park at the Kings park end. There is a pub called the Florida Park on Battlefield Road. I also went to the Rio in Rutherglen, and The Odean. Oh the memories, smashing eh. Take care Agnes....

I was born Margaret Susanne Hendrie on 6 May 1944. My mother was Helen Hendrie (ms Helen McCall) and lived at 111 Norfolk Street, Glasgow. I had a brother William who died in 1940 in Kilbarchan. I also had a sister, Jessie Strachan McLeod Hendrie and a brother James Hynds Nicol Hendrie with whom I lived in Norfolk Street until I was adopted and separated from them in September 1945. My sister has since died but do not know what happened to James. I would love to hear from anyone who lived in Norfolk Street at that time and if anyone remembers my mother or any family member, and also what it was like at that time.

To Jean Fairie I remember being taken to Richmond Park from a nursery, a wooden building, that was just opposite the plots (Caledonian Gardens) up from the Band of Hope hall. We used to pass this tree and spit on it, no wonder it was all warts and lumps. At the same time we were told there was a devils stone we used to spit on as well. It was in the park just near where the new Kay Bridge is, near the wee bridge that crossed the Jennies Burn. The old Kay Bridge was wood and it was burnt in the middle and closed to pedestrians, but you could still get over it to Bridgeton. As to Willie Knox, he made the best pies and peas for sixpence ha'penny. He had a shop in Wolseley Street next to George the Fruiter who lived in Polmadie Road. We moved to Castlemilk in 1965 and there was a family of McKnights who lived there in Scarrel Drive. Lastly has anyone any knowledge of an Irene Goldman who lived in Wolseley St opposite Wolseley Street school which we both went to in 1952. Glad I could get that lot! off my chest.

FAO AGNES HERRAGHTY.. Agnes colin macfarlane's new gorbals book is out on sep 4 and is all over the internet...here is a sneak preview i spotted on one site..i'm glad somebody has put the gorbals back on the map again! jean In his last book, The Real Gorbals Story, Colin Macfarlane detailed how he witnessed a once great area inhabited by wonderful characters and buildings disappear before his very own eyes. By the time Macfarlane’s Gorbals slum was knocked down in the early 1970s, it was time for him to leave the roughest school in Glasgow and move to a new home in another part of the city. He also had to find an occupation. In an attempt to extradite himself from his Gorbals gang days, he took a job as an apprentice chef at one of Glasgow’s top restaurants, but soon discovered that his co-workers were just as insane as those he had mixed with on the rough Gorbals streets. Meanwhile, Macfarlane struggled to integrate smoothly into an area that was considered to be affluent and soon found himself on the run in London with some of the most notorious men in Scotland. In No Mean Glasgow, Macfarlane charts his eventful, fun-packed passage from Gorbals street boy to grown man. He describes his adventures with a mixture of humour, sadness and delight. It is a book for those people living all over the world who remember ‘Old Glasgow’ – a city teeming with warmth, passion, patter and characters who could brighten up even the dullest of situations.

Hi Jean No I never did get to see the sailing boats that day. I was down in my caravan in West Kilbride with the intention of going straight to the "ducksie" I phoned my son to see if he was going along as he spent many a happy day as a wee boy fishing for the "baggie minnies" in a jeely jaur. Best laid plans and all that-a Glasgow "summer" it was chucking it down big time. Shame-I ended up going to the pictures. Shame though as I have enjoyed the wee boats since I was a lassie in pigtails. It is quite amazing the variey of wee boats that are sailed on the pond. Proper model sailing boats of all discriptions, through to paddle steamers and model steam ships. Another time maybe..... Cheers Rita

Agnes.........The picture hall in Kings Park was The State. First pic I saw in it was Your Cheatin Heart. We thought nothing of walking to and from it every Sat. When it shut down it was the Rio or Odeon in Rutherglen for us. The Rio did a cheap Matinee. On the way to the State we would jump into the toffs gardens and get some free apples. Less "adventurous" kids would chap the Toffs doors and ask if they could collect any "fallen fruit".....what a laugh. It wasn`t fallen till someone started shaking the tree like a maddie.....oh the adventure of it all!!

Hello Rita Moffat, Did you go to the wee sailing boat show at the Richmond park last month? I would love to have been there but 12,000 miles is a long way to travel. We spent our youth in that park while growing up in Rutherglen Rd. Do you or anyone else remember the Devil's tree that was outside the park that we had to spit on on the way past?
