This was a great read for me..I was born in 1965 in the Gorbals but that is all I know..I am looking for anyone who may have info on Euphemnia McIntyre (deceased) children: Ken, Francis, Helen and Eric....I went over in 1988 to see where I was from and it was gone...I cried feeling very displaced...and now I've found out that the Gorbals are back and what a testament to the Scottish ..they will survive anything....I am so proud that Glasgow has taken a historical Scottish icon and made it be something else again, congratulations, cheers

I was brought up in Salisbury St, continuation of Warwick St. Some people have been asking about St. Johns infant school, the main gates were in Warwick St later called Nicholson St. and the side gates took you into the lane were we crossed to go over to the chapel. The boys and girls stayed there until you made your Holy Communion and then the girls went to the all girls school at Tradeston St still called St. Johns and the boys went to St. Johns boys school in Portugal st across from the chapel. After we did our qualifing exams the ones who passed their exams went to Holyrood in Dixon Road which at the time I went was a senior secondary the others went to Our Lady and St. Margarets down in Kinning Park and the ones who didn't manage to pass their exams stayed on at St. Johns but in a different building called the advanced division. Pupils from other schools in the Gorbals who never passed their exams went there also. St. Johns school still stands were it was when I ! was young (69) but I don't know what it is. The old fire station that was along the road from it has been made into a homeless center (Hamish Allen). Their was a new St. Johns primary school built on Nelson St when they demolished St.Johns chapel. My maiden name is Welsh.

Could anyone help me with a real long shot. My paternal grandmother was from the gorbals, or at least her family was. The only information we have on her is: Her name was Margaret Toner, she had a son out of marriage in January 1950 named him Gerard and had him christened in St Francis. She stayed in either Oregan Street, or out in Torphin Crescent. The god parent at the christening was Elizabeth Toner, we don't know if this was a sister or cousin etc. There was no name given as the father. Her son Gerard was given up for fostering in circa 1952, the pair were never reunited again. Gerard, was my father (brilliant) but sadly died couple of years ago. I am looking for any information at all on my paternal grandparents, or their family. I have my own family now, but still wonder every day about the family I have some place but have never met. If you can help me in any small way I would be extremely grateful.

There has been many places mentioned in here but what about Charlies the cafe, it was between Lawmoor and Mathieson St on the righthand side going towards the Oatlands. Before Charlie Pacciti took over it, it belonged to his family I think it was called Annies not sure. His McCallums were brilliant. Does anyone remember it?

I lived 2 up in 15a Abbotsford Place , a sub let, as a kid. One thing I always remember is the wee crisp factory down a pen in South Portland St. You could go in there and buy a poke of hot crisps just like you could chips. I went to Abbostsford School from 1949-1953 when we moved out to near the Shaws. I still remember the names of many of my class mates. These included Ronnie Higgins, Thomas Anderson, Malcolm, James Rutherford, Duncan Lamont, Arnold LTart to name but a few. My mates outside school were Johnny Boy Love, John Brown Arthur McGowan and Tommy Brady. I remember as a kid one of the highlights was watching the fights out of our back window as the Clock Bar closed.
