Answer for Lynne Williams, if you try Scotlands People again and look for G-Grandparents deaths if after 1855 you should get their parents names. Hope this helps. Doreen

The Verrecchia Family that owned the Cafes in the Gorbals came to Scotland in 1908 From Filignano In the Molise Area of Italy and Resided in Paris Before Emigrating to Scotland. Ther names were Rosario and Angelina and the Family were Louis Emilio, Biaggio/Willie/ Mary Maggie Katy Charlie Ernest Sammy and Michael. A lot of Italian Families came to Scotland at the same time.

F.A.O.Amelia McKinlay - The Vennie (Adventure Playground was in Cumberland Street, just next to where Stirlingfauld flats are now. I thought that Surrey Street was just across from that, under the railway bridge. I think there is children's play centre on the grounds at the moment.

F.A.O. Millie Jordan I lived in Salisbury St. Surrey St was through the back from us and the only playground that I can remember was the sand pit at the corner of Pollokshaws Rd and Surrey St. There was the swings at the junction of Cathcart Rd and Pollokshaws Rd but it was demolished and the Railway club stands where it was. Would you enlighten me as to where it was, as between Cumberland St and Bedford St there was houses and the furniture place Scragovitz, don't think I have spelt it right.

Does anyone remember going to the Portland Irish Dancing. (I think it must have been in South Portland St) It was really good, especially cos other dancehalls like the locarno, electric gardens, maryland and majestic all closed at around 11.00p.m. The Portland didn't close till after 2.00. I used to feel like a dirty stop out then. I well remember coming in from the Locarno with my boyfriend, and my mother making me go back out to the Portland with my wee sister Mary -she wouldn't have got going otherwise, so I dutifully went, and had a great time. The Swing was a dance, fairly took the wind out of you. Music was Showbands. Great memories - us girls all came home together laughing. Can anyone rememebr the Vennie - Adventure Playground in Surrey Street. No Health and Safety then - great fun, swinging from ropes so high, and tyres.God help my white sandshoes. Jumping from dykes, onto on old mattresses.

If the Kiosk you refer to was on the corner of Gorbals and Cleland St then I do remember your family. I'm not sure if there were tables, or if it was just a carry-out. I do remember going there every Saturday in summer when I was a little girl, carrying a glass jug and having it filled with ice cream. If any of your family are still in the business I wonder if there is still a company in Glasgow (or anywhere) that still make "double nougat" wafers. I would love to buy a carton for my grandkids. If anyone knows could you please e-mail me take care.

FAO Libby McMillan Australia, The Calton is another area in Glasgow which is across the bridge from the Gorbals on the eastend of Glasgow. The famous "Barras" is there it opens every Saturday and Sunday and people from all walks of life visit it when they come to Glasgow. You can get practically everything from a needle to an Anchor there. There is a shop on the London Road called Glickmans that sell every sweet under the sun and they are on the internet and the media has written a few stories about the family business. If you continue along the Gallowgate you come to the famous Celtic football club where the Celtic team who were nicknamed the Lisbons Lions because they won the cup played there. Hope this helps you.

I used to live in 60 Kidston Street. My name was Mildred Rorke, and had a sister Mary Rorke. I remember with good memories of how I could just cross the road to Camden St School. Games had their seasons, skates on the bumpy roads, bikes, whips and peeires, beds on the streets, playing schools in the closes, knitting, crocheting, also scraps. Playing hooses, and shops in the backcourts. We also had a jumble sale each year, and we also had a show, where the mums helped with the costumes. All the money went to Pat Roller of the Daily Record (who I thought was a real man!!) I also remember older girls dressed in jiving gear, dancing and all the people crowding round them. I also remember a cafe in Crown St, across from the Hi Hi, where we would go on Fri night with our pocket money, buy hot peas and a macallum. Next door was a bag wash, later to become a wash-a-mat. However my mam used the steamie in Rutherglen Rd, and as we got older we went with her and used the public baths - we had previously used the tin bath under the bed, (in the recess) which doubled up as our toy box. Of course the bed had been on bricks to allow this. I remember the Crown Picture Hall, The Palace Cinema, which was next to the Citizens. Citizens is now and also the Calder which was in Govanhill. My mum used to buy our weekly shopping in Cumberland Street; where all the mams went and humped it all back home. Daily she would use a dairy called Mrs Hoanze (spelling prob wrong) and also a Mrs Scott. Mrs Scott was opened very late and she used to have a wonderful "penny Tray" and sold us penny glasses of juices from old washed fish paste jars??!! some of my pals were Eliz McLaughlin, Linda Grant, Kathleen McLafferty, Marylne Greer. I can vaguely remember Dixons Blazes, cos our house looked right onto it - I used to think that that was "the bad fire". Long after I can remember a tale of the Molls Myre and pixies taking people way, and our mams telling us not to go over to the old site - Do you think it stopped us - I can remember a lovely summer where us weans had a ball, black (supposed to be white) sand shoes. Faces filthy, but I can remember being happy and looking forward to the next day. I also remember going to the chippy - we had a choice - the Havana in Caledonia Rd or the Deep Sea in Crown Street. My mother always went to the Deep Sea. After our dinner in the summer the mothers would be out chatting. that meant we could stay up late. We moved to Hutchiesontown Court in 1966 and can still remember the newness and the feeling I had then. Things and places have changed, but people are the same and its good to exchange memories.

I was born at 17 Thistle Street, my mother Mabel Elliott, died there in 1950 from T.B. my mothers parents all lived in the gorbals, my mothers family, brothers, Charlie, Billy, Gilbert, her sisters Jeannie, married to Dick of Dicks wallpapers, Sheila and Cathy. Cathy died in the sixties, I understand my mothers family were hawkers, my fathers brother, Denis died in the fifties in a motorcycle accident we lived, next to the pen in Thistle Street my mother and her sisters worked in the kipper store I believe behind 17 Thistle Street. My uncle Charlie did well for himself I understand he died in the middle of last year, he was probably worth a million or so when he died, I believe he was also involved in the city council somewhere. A family in no 17 used to look after us while my father was at work I believe their name was Thompson, I remember my dad coming home in the mornings and his first job was to kill the rats that were stuck to an old suitcase lid, recently I was in the Gorbals whilst they were building the new hotel in Ballater Street and one of the lads climbed up the pole and took down the Thistle Street sign for me I intend to make a sign for my home with it, I was very young in those days but that, with the death of my mother so young and us so young has caused me severe anxiety problems in later life, so get your thinking caps on, I would be really greateful for any photographs around about the very early fifties to help in my recuperation.
