Hi everyone I hope someone could help me, my grampa was brought up in the Gorbals and has told many exciting stories. I was wondering if anyone knew/knows him his name is Andrew Cameron (has a brother alec) and was brought up in Mathieson Street, Gorbals? I am fairly sure he was born in 1927. I would love to hear from anyone with information! Many thanks

I have posted before and I'm always amazed at the great stories told still waiting to see who remembers Miss Muffets the bakery in Cumberland st across the road from the Laurieston Renick church. They made the best iced Gingerbread I have ever tasted and Jacks chip shop at the bottom of Cavendish st next to Mary Pirries he made the best potato fritters. Still have great memories of growing up in the Gorbals. This is a great site!

I'm trying to find out if theres an existing copy of the biography of Johnny Raminsky, the safe cracker available anywhere. I believe it was called 'Gentle Johnny'. My brother served time in Barlinnie at the same time as him (he must have been a good age then) and word went round the prison that 'Raminsky's gone over the wall'. In fact he was hiding in a drain in the exercise yard. I'd be more than pleased if anybody has any similar anecdotes.

I noticed that someone on the Gorbals website is looking for information about Harry Rollins School of Dancing. Harry was my late uncle and I would be more than happy to help anyone looking for information. Whilst I'm on about Glasgow, I'd like to find photographs of Nicholson Street (circa 1949) when and where I was born, and Abbotsford School, where I was pupil from 1954 to 1961. Photographs of the street, school building or, even better, a school photograph of staff and pupils would be appreciated. Submitted by: Michael Rollins Leeds, West Yorkshire 23/02/05 Email: m.rollins@btopenworld.com Does anyone remember Poli's chip shop, newsagent "Joe the Robber, Coyle's fruit shop, Dales hardware shop, Patterson's bakery, the Irish House, sold ham hocks etc. All located on Norfolk st Gorbals in the 50s?
