There was an old request re Pillans from Mathieson Street. I lived around the corner, on Caledonia Road from a Ned Pullins on Mathieson Street. He was also in my class at The St Francis annex, which was the top floor of Hayfield street school. 1948/49. Could be the same family?

My Granny, Mary McGuire, lived for a short time in Sandyfaulds Pend at the start of the war. A free standing house with a huge garage. It must have been an old Car-hire, or a Funeral Undertakers originally. It was across the pend from Walter Boyce's coal rea. Does anyone know anything about the pend buildings? Have photos? Incidently my Granny ran minoges and was a friend of Alice Cullen's.

I am researching into the tower blocks that once stood in Queen Elizabeth Square and were demolished in 1993. I'm hoping to hear from past residents so please send me an email. You may also remember my papa Tommy Murray who had shops on Cumberland St and Rutherglen Rd. Thanks Ross.

Today, 23rd March is the anniversary of the death of Joseph Hughes (George Cross) whose story can be read on the Gorbals People section of this website. Here is a poem I have written to honour this brave young soldier. JOSEPH HUGHES – G C (FOR A HERO WAS HE) Joseph Hughes gave his life for his Service Corps ‘Brothers’ His the ultimate price to save so many others. Just a lad from the Gorbals how proud we should be of that brave young soldier for a hero was he. His fear and his pain we can only surmise how he must have suffered in his sacrifice. With esteem his name spoken as it always will be by his comrades-in-arms of the RASC. In death then young Joseph his actions rewarded for his gallantry a George Cross awarded. His body lies cold far away, in the earth but let’s bring his soul home to the place of his birth. Each act of remembrance brings Joseph back home to the land of his fathers his spirit will come. So let’s always remember with a thought, or a prayer Joseph Hughes from the Gorbals and his courage so rare. © ELSA J BEATTIE

I'm trying to get some information about my Grandfather, who emigrated to America in the mid 1920's. His name was Gavin Whitton Flint. We know that he lost contact with his family in Glasgow, (Gorbals) after about two years, and was never heard of again! He may have moved on to Canada, where his sister Elizabeth had emigrated to, but we have no other information. Can anyone help?

I see that James Stokes VC has been honored by the people of the GORBALS, long over due I had the great honor to know him, his sister Nellie Stokes Ford was at Buckingham with the family when they received the VC from King George VI we were there to meet Nellie when she came back from London she lived up the same close as us 62 Lawmoor Street, I understand a movie is going to be made of his life story.

Dear Friends...Just a message to let you all know that I have recently set up a weblog for the Southern Necropolis which I have aptly named "Gorbals Window On Time...The Happy Reaper Memoirs" This will enable me to keep you all up to date with ongoing events and new characters etc that I cover in my column in the "Local News For Southsiders". The excellent local paper that has (for nearly five years) provided me with a platform for the Southern Necropolis. So...I look forward to hearing from you at...http://windowontime.blogspot.com/

Used to go in to the Kiosk cafe round about 1955, then also went in to Hell's Kitchen cafe, the guy that owned was called Bill, he and his sister Margaret? ran the cafe. He used to give me money on a Friday to buy records for the juke box. Lots of good memories from the Gorbals, wonder if any of my old friends are still about?

F.A.O. Isabella Henriques, I remember all the shops you spoke about, it was my job to go up to the fish shop on a Friday night to get our supper. Mary Pirries was like an Alladins cave to us all with all the sweets. The old church on Cavendish Street and Pollokshaws road still stands where it was years ago it is now made into a homeless unit. Abbotsford Place school has been boarded up for years but I see that there was a sign up in it for office lets when I went past on the bus. It is a listed building and cannot be demolished. They have just finished building brand new houses just accross the road from where Mary Pirries was, I think there was only one close in that building if I can remember as I born and stayed just around the corner in Salisbury Street up until 1956 when I was married from there. Do you remember George who had a dairy there and also the dairy in Cumberland St. called McIndoes were they sold the milk straight from the metal urns?
