Just noticed a mistake in an earlier post I made - should have read my dad Gerry married Helen Kelly from Polmadie in the early 60s. Our house was destroyed by fire, thought I should put the record straight before they read the earlier post and cut me out the will, still thoroughly enjoying the site keep it up.

I was reading " No Mean City" recently and was quite intrigued by references to the open air gym in Glasgow Green between St. Andrews bridge and King's bridge. Can anyone remember this or what it consisted of?

FAO:GORBALS Jim Oz: Re 23.02.06.
John McCue is alive and well. As a matter of fact Big Francie O'Brien takes him out from the care centre every week-end, and takes him to the old 'Railway Club'. And to those who wish to nosey Johns injuries were sustained as a result of a domestic accident. Ohh, and Jim, try and take a step back and get your facts correct before you make comments. I see you were surmising what certain people may have died from and it's not quite true. Always remember Jim you may be hurting deceased peoples families. By the way, do I know you. Terry

Does anyone know the meaning of giving a "christening piece" when a child is being baptised, "don't know if non catholics do it". My niece who is an "expat" living in Winnipeg grandson was getting baptised and she wanted to do this and people were asking her what was the meaning behind this. All she could tell them it was done in the Gorbals where she was born, so can anyone help??

I was born in 1956 and spent the first six years of my life at 125 Florence St. My dad also stayed there as a child. He had two brothers, Tommy, James and a sister Theresa who all live in Canada now. My grandfather Tommy and his second wife Ida stayed next door to us. My dad, Gerry married my mum Helen Kelly from Polmadie in the early 60's. Our house was destroyed by fire and we moved to South Nitshill but I still have some nice memories of the Gorbals. Is there anyone out there who remembers any of my family. Congratulations on this site it is brilliant.

John Mitchell (1908-1928) was born in Peterhead, Aberdeenshire, and emigrated to Canada as an apprentice clerk with the Hudson's Bay Company. The poor lad lost his life by drowning on September 2, 1928 at Pine Ridge/Gold Pines, near Red Lake, Ontario. His mother, Annie Mitchell, lived at 14 Cairntrodlie in Peterhead and arranged to have her boy's body shipped back to Peterhead. I wonder if any might be willing to locate and photograph his headstone? Should there be any family, I would be over the moon to hear from you. Sincerely, John Note from administrator: Hope you find what you want but this site is really for the Gorbals area of Glasgow and is not intended to cover the wider area of Scotland as you can imagine we would be inundated by requests. Quite simply we do not have the resources to provide a service for that purpose as the site is not gaining any funding so essentially is being maintained on a voluntary basis.

I am trying to find any information about Duncan McLean Hutchison born in 1925 at 81 Rosebery (Roseberry) Street, Glasgow. His father was also Duncan McLean Hutchison and his mother Isabella (nee Gourlay). When his father and mother were married in 1922, they both lived at 118 Waddell Street, Glasgow. Witnesses to the marriage were David Hutchison (also of 118 Waddell Street) and Eva Stoddart of 46 Pollock Street. Duncan’s grandfather was also called Duncan McLean Hutchison, so the name may have been used throughout later male descendants. Also Isabella’s mother was also an Isabella, so that name may also have been used throughout later female generations. I would be grateful if anyone can provide any information on any of the above people or their descendants. Thank you, John Bamford.

The enquiry re: John Ross and family. My dad was a John Ross, who was born in Sandiefaulds St 1916. He went to Hayfield Primary. When I was younger (20) forty years ago, we went across to Bridgeton to meet his relatives. We met in a pub at the bottom of Abercromby St. Up to that day I did not know I had relatives in Bridgeton, as we were always warned about going there, as it was full of bad people. Turned out he jokingly meant my cousins! Have asked around at various times since about these Ross's and nobody seemed to know them. I wonder if they are the same ones. We moved to Wolseley St in Oatlands then Scarrel Dr in Castlemilk in 1956. My older brother was a John Matthew Ross and he would now be 65. My Granda was a Matthew Ross and he was a lorryman (carter) who had horses in the pend stable between Sandifaulds St and Moffat St.

I remember the headmistress was Miss Bird and the Infants Headmistress was Miss McClelland. Miss Foley and Miss McCarran were also in the infants department. There was Mr Gordon who taught 'the big yins'. The janitor during my time was Mr McGuigan I think. Do you remember going for a spray bath at St Gabriel's?
