Long, long time ago, but remember your brother very well, "Robert" who died in a very unfortunate accident at anderston cross (with one of those new bus's at that time), I lived at Clydeferry St. Was in the same class as Robert, (St Pat's, bishop st) he was very artistic, I thought you lot lived along beside "McAlpine St" any way, long story, but I personally can "never" forget Robert.

Sorry I can't help you on family history, just to let you know, I never forget the "Grimes" family
through "Robert"

Take care

hello anne,
do you stay in glasgow?,
the only advice I can give is mitchell library,
you will find plenty of info there ,
voters roll, cencus records, poor records,
it,s once you start you will be amazed at what you
uncover,
a lot of people who stayed in anderston had to rely on
poor relief, like our grandparents times were hard
wish you good luck in your search

cheers

I was the one that "stole" Roberts "kite" that he made at school, (sorry) but he chased me across the main road (Argyle st.) where big "Sid" the policeman was in the centre directing the traffic.

We arrived at the other side of the road (Washington st.) and I gave up, and gave Robert his "kite" back, Forgive me please I was a stupid child then!! I am sorry to say I have no photos of Robert from those early days.

Hi, my name is Chris Lafferty.
I was born in Robroyston Hospital Dec 1957 and brought home to 3 Catherine Place (top floor) i stayed there until I was six years old. I have an older brother Billy born in Dec 1948, my Fathers name was Jimmy and my Mothers was Lilias.
I remember playing in the back court, the brockie and up and down the Lane. Other things that come to mind are the Rag and Bone man and the Brickets man with their horse and carts. I also remember starting school at Finnieston Street school and passing the Police and Fire stations every day in the walk two and from school with my Mum.
i remember we had a Bowman family living up our close and a woman called Patsy, who was friends with my Mum, lived on the bottom left as you came in the close. I had to climb in Patsy's window one day when she locked herself out of the house. Her husband was a keen cyclist and he kept his bike in the close. There were six families in number 3, it would be nice to put a name to them all, can anyone help?
In 1964 we moved to a new home in the Kingsway Flats, I attended Scotstoun school. My Dad died when I was 10 and I came back to Anderston to live with my Grandparents the Hughes at 788 Argyle Street, on the corner with Elderslie Street across the road from Ladolas cafe. I attended Kent Road Primary before going up to Woodside Secondary.
i have loads of memories of that time of my life that I'll keep for future postings, however, I will mention Biily Begg, Frank Coyle and Kenny Anderson who had a twin Sister called Georgina.
We were moved to the Shaftsbury Street multi when they demolished 788 Argyle Street. I hope I have stirred some memories and look forward. To reading the responses especially about Catherine Place.

matt.63,

If it's information on the street you're after, Brown Street ran down from Argyle Street to the Broomielaw.

My Granny lived in Crimea Street which joined Brown Street to Carrick Street (closer to Anderston Cross), about halfway down to the Clyde. The next street along from Brown Street, towards Central Station, was James Watt Street, the site of one of Glasgow's biggest fires, I think, in the early sixties.

If you're looking for information on your family, perhaps you could give us the family name and I'm sure there's lots of people on GG who will try to help you out.

matt.63,

It's been over fifty years but I do remember visits to a family in Brown Street while at my grannies. No way could I ever remember the names but their tenement was up Brown Street from Crimea Street, towards Argyle Street.

You never know, it could have been your rellies !
