While looking for something totally unrelated, I stumbled across this site and a post from someone wondering who the boys in Bert Hardys 'Gorbal Boys' photograph were. The one on the left, with the darker hair and holding the jumper is my father in law. He still lives in Glasgow, but now in the west end. He is now nearly 67 and as proud as punch to be part of this important piece of Glasgow history.

I am working on the family history, my great grandfather Robert Smith (he was a carter) was killed in 1914 during WW1. He was with the cameronian scottish rifles 1st battalion. He married Isabella Stevenson in 1911 she lived in 218 Centre St and he in 71 Canal St (now Mauchline St.) I cannot trace him/them after the 1901 census until 1914 prior to him going to the war. So if anyone can help it would be appreciated, I did hear they stayed in Sandyfaulds St, just prior to 1914. What a smashin site I have enjoyed reading the stories makes me proud of my Gorbals heritage Robert.

July 1973, I was traveling Europe for the summer. While in London in July I met a Peter McFadden from Australia. I have lost all information that I had about him. In 1974, I believe, Peter McFadden was traveling in Canada with a group of friends and he called me in Camden, Ouachita County, Arkansas, United States of America. I can now be reached in North Little Rock, Arkansas at telephone number 501 944-4791(serious calls only please)or write to me at my e-mail. Any help would be so much appreciated. Hopefully, I will eventually come across my information on him. Until then, thanks for any help any one can do!! Bev Pierce

My father James Barclay lived on McKinley street in the 1920's and then moved to Tradesden Street. He attended Strathbungo school and joined the H.L.I to go to Europe in the latter part of the war. His family McDonalds came from Tiree and his uncles who had served in the Camerons in the first world war worked in the docks. My father who is now 83 often spoke of watching a mine come down on a parachute in the blitz, this mine hit a tram killing all the occupants, my father was saved by a policeman who pushed him and his friends down a close, does this story ring any bells with anyone?.

In response to Iain McCaskey's request re chuch in Partick, Vine St. There are now 2 C of Scotland Churches in this area called Partick South and Partick Trinity. These 2 would be made up from former congregations called Dowanvale, Dowanhill, Hamilton Crescent, Newton Place, Partick High, Old Partick and Partick East. There may have been former congregations who made up these 7, but this info is in the current year book of the church of scotland, and it does not give details of the names of churches before these 7. You could phone Glasgow Presy. 0141 332 6606 for further details. Hope this helps.

F.A.O. Richard Dodson I remember "wee johnny christies" shop well it was at cumberland street end. My Dad chewed "Gallaghers Warhorse Tobacco" because he was a miner down the pits and he used to send us sometimes to johnnie shop for the tobacco. If my dad had not much money he would buy a half ounce of it and wee johnnie could never cut it evenly on the block of wood he used. My dad told us to make sure we got the biggest half. We used the dairy in Cumberland st. called McIndoes were the lady took the milk from the big urns, it was between Warwick St. and Abbotsford place. Do you remember the shop at the top end of Hospital st that sold the penny vantases it was facing the weighing machine building which still stands to this day and also the grain store shop on Gorbals St. and Cumberland St. the shop is still there but it isn't a grain store.
