We moved to the wonderful new housing estate called Easterhoue in 1958. For heaven's sake the buses did not even run into it then. We lived in Errogie Street and then moved to Duntarvie Road across from the shops. I even worked in Stewart's the newsagents when I was at Charlotte Street. It was supposed to be the answer to the slums and the gorbals and it was for a couple of years. Then the rot set in. No shops, schools transport just rows and rows of houses and a couple of pubs; my mum and dad worked in them. How sad was that. was pleasantly surprised last year when home on holiday. It looked much better when we drove through, but not sure if I would like to live there again

Beth, I had relations who lived in Erogie Street, the Nicols who also moved there in 1958.
I think there were two families with that same name.
My aunt & uncle had two boys and one girl Helen, who was the eldest.

I lived at 138 Lochend Road next to the 41 bus terminus. I was in the first intake at Lochend School and moved to the area in around 1963 from Dennistoun - our street was to be demolished as part of the preliminary works to build the Motorway on the route of the old Monkland Canal. I have a copy of the 1966 Kelly's Directory of Glasgow here so if anyone wants to know who was living in their close that year please let me know.

There was a Hugh Gold at 5 Dalilea Drive, just round the corner from me Margie. I dont remember the name but I would certainly have known him if this is the family. Where did you live?

Hi Drew, I did,nt live in Easterhouse but I remember going out with Billy a few times. All I can remember is he lived just round from the shops. It was so long ago, I think he worked for a firm called Scotts and I think he was a joiner or electrician. He was a lovely guy and a gentleman. cheers Margie.

Hiya,

I used to visit my Granny & Grandad Wilkes at Langbar Crescent when I was little, last up there for Grandads funeral 1988. I remember the big bins out the back and the coal sheds up the stairs, always remember the pop van that used to come around. Lived in England and was very surprised to find out it never sold ice cream but sweets etc and bottles of Irn bru, lovely memories. Googled the street the other day at it's still the same, not changed like some of the others have, will show my mum next time she is over. She will love this site as she grew up there and has loads of memories, great site xx

Hi,
I stumbled upon this site and found it very interesting as a former Easterhouse inhabitant. We were one of the very first families to arrive.We
moved into a brand new 3 apt at 54 Wellhouse Crescent,there were only
two other closes finished at the time,nos 56 & 58.Everything around was just fields and mud,wot a nightmare.As kids,we played in and around the
buildings being constructed, such as Wellhouse Primary and subsequently
John Ogilvie schools,it was all a big new world for a boy of eight from Maryhill.I spent my early and teenage years there.Lived through all the gang issues etc. I worked on the Tango Cafe ice cream vans for a while. After marrying and moving away around 1970 i had the pleasure of coming back to my old place through my work as a bus driver on the green buses a few years later. It was great to see the old place again. Was back at my old haunts,Rigg Pl,Carriden Pl,Langbar & wellhouse crescents for a wee nostalgic visit recently. Loved growing up in Easteregg.Had many friends and lots of great times there.I will always have a soft spot for it.

Hi, i moved to Easterhouse, Lochdochart Road around 1963 with my brothers Peter and Brian Carmichael. mum Tilly and dad Peter (both dead now).. We went to St Claires and then St Leonards (no longer there). My memory of names is shocking, i remember Ann Hobbs, Anne Blair, Anne Marie Callaghan (died 1991), Jean Gallagher (now Strange), Bernadette ????, couple of pals in Baldragon Street. Our close was just the square where the terminus was, just along from the Corporation bus terminus. Went to Clouds Disco, saw Salvation, who eventually became Ultravox perform there many a Saturday. Peter and Brian used to play footy with Bobby Russell (ex-gers) and "old" Jackie McNamara and both played for local Teams , Blue Star i think? My name is Elizabeth Carmichael (now Smith) ...if anyone has a better memory than me then please get in touch and jog it for me tongue.gif

Hi Liz

My name is Billy Anderson and I lived at the terminus (no 133 Lochdochart Road). Went to Lochend on first intake and hung about with Jackie Mcnamara, Billy Walker, Jim McIvor.

Ring any bells??
