Do you remember the building that used to be in Dobbies Loan before it became Dales Cycles? I think it was some type of freezer facility?

Dolkin was Civic Street the street before Edington Street across from the Phoenix Park swings????

I also came from the Cowcaddens, Sawfield Place, where the Endrick was, but we moved to Barlanark in April 1953.

Was born and lived above Griffins bar,can remember Charlies fish-n-chips shop,Gizzis cafe,had the best ice cream,on Nothwoodside Rd there was the Rex bar,Farrells bakery,Mrs Clark,s sweetie shop,O'Brien,s funeral parlor,I can,t recall the fish store on Dobies Loan,we used to buy steam whelks and pick them out with a pin


I lived in the only close in Sawfield Place and my best friend lived above the Griffins pub and our kitchen windows looked into each other. As children we all played up the 'showgie' which was at the back of the Endrick / Pheonix picture hall which was also situated in Sawfield Place. We moved to Palm St about 1953 and my friends family moved to Northwoodside Rd above Ross's bakery. Do you remember any of this?

Kathleen you lived next door to me and I remember your family well. I'm one of the Curran's, we used to play together, although i'm about two years older than you.

I remember your mum used to give us green ribbons and shamrock for St. Patricks Day. smile.gif

I also remember your Aunt Bridget, well now I am in St. Bridget's Parish Baillieston in the East End of Glasgow.

Hi folks

I lived in Myrtle Street 'til I was 2.

My Dad Donald (Nicky) Nicolson was born 1929 in Shamrock St but grew up in Palm St. He went to St Georges Rd school, and his first job at 14 was in RS McColls cleaning out the chocolate machines. He often talks about how all the weans in the street would gather round him to pick off the chocolate fae his overalls!

My Mum was Chrissie Corr from 61 Cedar St. She went to St Columbas' school. She worked on and off for years in Modern Mantles at the Round Toll as a sewing machinist.

Would love to see old pics of any of these streets as I've no memory of them at all.

Hi I took a walk round some of the area a few weeks ago - sadly a lot of it is gone but enough of it remains to jog the old memory, I went up Bairds Bray between what was the Astoria Pictures and Oakbank hospital and walked toward Port Dundas along the canal bank. its looking a bit fancier up there these days.Anyway I found a stairway down to Sawmillfield St ? it came out next to the old cleansing depot -there is still a sign in the brickwork with the opening hours, the outer wall of the electricity board depot is still mostly intact and Editington Street is still there but the big tower has gone and so have all the tennements but the kerbstones and lamposts remain. Went along Edington st to Corn street ,just the road remains as it used to ,Civic Street is still there and the old Civic Press printers building is intact but kind of sealed up. The hill up to Phenoix park Terrace? did not look a long or as steep as I remember as as a kid we used to slide down the iced up pavement in winter long time back now .Winters were colder maybe back inthe 50s
Went across to where the old Crosburn street area was but only a wee bit of north Woodside road remains and the rest apart from what was once S tJoseph infant school has changed beyond my recollection , t was good to walk round but with mixed feelings about it and everything that was left seemed to have shrunk (still working that out) streets were shorter and narrower than i remember -
must be getting older quicker than I realise.
Anyway all the best to all who were born and grew up round there.

Gee

Hello everyone. I was born in Oakbank hospital and lived at 26 Corn St. and went to St. Joseph's then St. Augustines. I'm tracing my family tree and wonder if anyone knows of a family called Edgar from McAslin St.

I remember my granny taking me to a open market through an entrance at the corner of Renfrew Street and Cowcaddens - a man used to stand at the entrance selling ribbons - there was a cafe in it ran by a German woman I think.
It was always very muddy and the market looked really old.

Does anyone know where the name Normal school came from ?

Anne. One of my earliest memories is going to that market you speak about with my Dad. I was always facinated with all the ribbons. My Dad used to go to buy old 78 records from a stall there.
