I was born in Kelvingrove, then spent my first two years in Aberdeenshire before coming to live with my grandparents Annie and Hugh Duncan a 9 McLean St. there was a family called Bell in our close who had a daughter called Rena. Also remember Margaret McGowan who lived a up next close.
Big John Waugh who worked on the docks lived in our close with his lovely wife Betty who I called 'Auntie' as that was the way then.

I went to Lorne St., School and my teacher was Miss Ralston who was great. But every day Rena Bell and Margaret McGowan after school would bully me all the way home, even though I knew they would be waiting for me I still went to school as I loved it so much. I think being an only child had something to do with it.

Later moved to the Gorbals after my grandparents died.

Hi
I am researching my family tree at the moment and came across this site for Kinning Park. All of my dad's side came from KP. His name was Michael (known as Mick) McCall. They stayed at Blackburn St, Plantation St, Paisley Rd West. He had sisters Isa, Betty, Ellen and brothers Willie and John. I believe my granny Elizabeth (Lizzy) McCall had a shop on Plantation St but don't know if this is true. Would like to hear from anyone who remembers them?

Thanks

I lived at 212 Seaward street 1968 - early 70s, I have great memories of that time, 'wee' mary's shop, the hub of the street. I went to Our Lady & St Margarets School, had a girlfriend called Rosemary whom I still have fond memories of.
I have tried to locate anyone from Seawaed Street (top end opposite the whisky bond, as it was then.) It seems like everyone from that era never existed, ive not been able to find anyone, but what a great and unforgettable part of my life, Kinning park ... brilliant!
Steve

I knew Brown's from Seaward St. They lived in my Aunts building. There were LOTS of boys and 3 wee girls.

I lived at number 20 Sleads Street (in the close) I lived there from 1957 (when I was 1 year-old) until we got moved because they were demolishing the building, I think that was when I was about 11 or 12. Next door neighbour was Mrs McCulloch who worked in Gray Dunn as did my mother, and Mrs Thompson (everyone called her 'auld granny Thompson' ).....Her grandkids lived with her....The Sweeny's....John Sweeny, I remember the most.

I remember the Arnotts who lived across the road at 17 (I think) I played football with Ian and he had an older brother Walter. There was also the Steele's and the frazers who stayed at number 21. I remember Archie Steele and his cousin Davy Fraser. We all used to play football in the street using the 'milky' garage door as a goal for three and in. We also used to climb the fence at Jedd Brothers paper work and play among the bales of waste magazines and newspapers.....(some nice magazines in there by the way.....heheh wink.gif )

I remember a John McMillan who lived next close at number 18 and a Jim Meechan who's father was blind who lived in the close at number 22.

I remember we used to have some great games of football playing against the boys from Stanley Street....We used to play those games on vermont street using the street lamp posts on opposite sides of the street as the goal posts.

Happy days indeed.
