Hi
i lived in govanhill st from1963 till1972 my familys name was wright (james.johnny.patsy.mattie.cathy and rita) does anyone remember them
My wee ma was brought up there in 28 seath st her maiden name was mcqueen great site

I was born at number 11 Seath Street,in my grannies house, in 1958. She was called Martha Hendry and my grandpa was called Andrew Hendry. My grannie died in the 90's. We lived there for a while when my mum and dad split up, in the late 60's. I went to Holycross for a little while, don't know how long for, my memory is not that great. I can remember the Mcquilters, who lived across the road,and the eldest daughter was my friend at the time. We moved to England,but used to visit when ever we could. We are Billy, Jackie, Liz, Andrew and Deenna Milligan. Does anybody remember us?

govanhill used to be a great place to stay but unfortunatly the area has seen a decline in the last few years there used to be a great community spirit about the old place i was down last week as i moved to irvine god what a shock i got didnt meet anyone i knew from the old days has everyone moved away ? was so sad to see the decline in allison street calders street kingarth street were i stayed i feel sorry for the decent folk of govanhill how was this great district allow to go downhill so fast in the old days the place was spotless took a stroll up by my old school the victoria was shocked to see it closed and surrounding streets looking like a rubbish tip was really saddened i think the city fathers would turn in their grave at the demise of this once great area

I was brought up in Hickman and moved in 1966 to Castlemilk but have great memories of Govanhill. Calder Street picture house and then the swanky Odeon at Eglinton Toll on a Saturday morning for 6 cartoons and 3 'features', all for a sixpence! We stayed in the close next to 'Tony's' the shop. I played with the kids from Jamieson Street and the only two I remember now were Ruby Murray and Elizabeth Mc Nally (I think!). I remember going to the swing park near Calder Streer and Bennan Square, where hidden amongst the houses was a wee park and my mum used to take us there with peeces and jam!! If anyone has photos of Hickman Street I would love the see them. They had pulled down the old tenements early on for the motorway - that has finally arrived - and so I had no chance to visit our part Hickman Street when I lived in Glasgow.

I see no-one has posted on this for a while but hoping there are some people out there who lived there in the early 60's! smile.gif

Hi Donna, I know all of McNally family, Peggy was my age group. One of your Aunts passed recently. I am Anne Murray, Lila's younger sister(80 now) Lila was mother of Daniel and the late Marilyn. Where are you now, Quite coincidentally Daniel is coming from England for weekend, he will be paying a visit to James and his wife,.

Re Sandy Gardiner do not ever recall his family. Perhaps Sandy would have known Lila, she used to live in Jamieson Street 39 anti 1965. thumbup.gif

Hi I'm searching for the relatives of a World War II casualty who came from Glasgow and was married to a Margaret. I really hope you don't mind me asking whether or not your Watson-family (or any other relatives) might be the ones I'm looking for. So could you please let me know your grandfathers name ?

Thank you very much!

kind regards
you're free to contact me here

My family lived in Govanhill (Carfin St.) for 6 years. It was a converted pawnshop. Our previous house was a tenement in Paisley Road West. It was condemned due to the bombing in a nearby street, and we were moved pronto. However Govanhill was a great place to live back then, at least 5 picture houses within walking distance, and easy access to Queen's Park, Cathkin and Hampden. The only drawback was the polis was always chasing us for playing fitbaw in the street. ohmy.gif
