Schools??
Catholic Schools on Tradeston Street. Started there in 1959 from St John's Portugal Street. Girls last names that I remember are McKay, Fisher, McKeown, Docherty and teacher Mr McKay. The school was opposite a boys school and next to that was a sweetie shop. Must solve this one for my sister!

Thank you Colin, but my sister said it wasn't either Holyrood or Bonnies - so the mystery deepens hahaha!

I'm trying to locate any info on the Banks family. Benny Banks and Gertrude Banks, lived in Bedford Street, Gorbals in 1921? Sometime later they moved. They had a son called Benny Banks born sometime later.

In the 1950's, son Benny Banks worked at George Square Post Office, he was married and had two little daughters, maybe more children but I only heard about the two girls. Does anyone know of this family??? I am trying to do a family tree and I'm stuck. I'm trying to get the connection between them and my grandparents - Christina and Robert Bartley who lived at Bedford Street with the Banks family for a few years. Unfortunately, Robert Bartley died due to an accident - he slipped while trying to repair a roof at Lawmoor St. Did my grandparents have any brothers or sisters?? I need all the help I can get if I'm to get this family tree done. Please email marggo@canada.com if you have any information?

Can anyone remember the American and Canadian troop train that stopped on the railway bridge over Cumberland Street on 1944? The weans were shouting "any gum chum". The troops threw down chocolate and gum - what a scramble! Also in Warick Street on V.E. Day the bonfires and flags, great party!
