my memories are mostly childhood one"s .... playing rounders on the street in the
summer evenings along with the other games like kick the can, peever, going after the G.I."s
looking for "any gum chum' going to the matinee " the standard pictue house in Particular,
and visiting my Auntie in Anniesland, she always gave us a good dinner when we visited, also
a bunch of us kids would go to the kelvengrove park, play in the fountain there and get chased away by the parkie, also the paddling pond , but getting chased by the parkie was better fun.
we would also search for Sanny Sand Shoe " A Flasher" and when we saw him the chase was on, great fun, fished for baggy meenies "minnoes" in Queen Vistoria park, Whiteinch, went to the swimming pool there as well. As a teenager, after church on Sunday we would visit the art
galleris in Kelvingrove to check out the talent, sometimes that was a great laugh .
well, thats about it . cheers Angel

My mother lived in doon the brae at 66 Partick Bridge St until she got married for the first couple of years they lived at 29 Parick Bridge St then moved to the Townhead.

I was born when my parent lived there and was baptisted in St Simon's. For years we visited my Granny and Grandad at 66 and I loved it, we use to play in the swing park on the corner.

My Grandad use to drink in the Springwell. I remember him getting dressed and going up there taking great care of his pencil thin moustache using an eyebrow pencil to colour it darker.

One of my Uncle's worked in Spillars for years and another one worked in the Kelvin Hall. Both my mother's sister's and brother lived in Partick. My mum went to St Peter's Girls and so did most of my cousin's of course the boys went to St Peter's boys.

We use to go to the ABC minor's in Byres Road most Saturday's we would get the underground from St Enoch's and get off at Hillhead meet our cousins at the pictures then walk down to my Granny's afterwards.

My Granny moved to Hayburn St then to Rosevale St finally to Dumbarton Road. My Auntie has lived in Hayburn St for over 40 years and my other Auntie was in the Partick Fire Station after it was converted. She recently sold her house there and moved to Drumchaple to be closer to her daughter and her family.

My Uncle moved to Anderson then back to Partick before he died.

I still have quite a few relatives still in the Partick area, and you wouldn't get them to move they just love the place.

hello weesmasher, you do have nice memories of Partick and your relations, I went to the same school as your mother and attended St. Simons, as well and had great times in the swingpark as
well....
it was really in dunaskin Sreet " commonly known as the " Quarry"
I have a brother who lives in drumchapel, he and is family still go to Partick a lot.
I was back there about 2yrs ago, had a walk around, There are lots of changes, the swing park has long gone and no more Partick Bridge St. as we knew it, but still ST. Simons is there.
Cheers Angel

Sorry I am a bit off topic here.

Anne 1, I also remember Sanshoe Sanny when I lived in Maryhill. Did you also know "wee doutie?" That's what we called him anyway - he swaggered about Maryhill singing with a wee fag in end his mouth [a dout] and was a right character = he wasn't the size of tuppence.

There was also a massive big skinny guy who used to tap dance and sing outside the Glassgow Empire and also the cinemas. He always wore a dinner suit. I think he was a few sandwiches short of a picnic but he was good entertainment.

I was on the phone tonight asking my mum where she stayed in Partick
she told me she stayed in Fordyce st & her cousin Bernadette Hurles
stayed in 23 Highland st.
She then started telling me about HAIRY MERRY that went about wae a fur
coat on singing ave maria,all the catholic's would wrap money up in newspaper
and throw it out the windae tae her.
Well this guy used tae copy her,he would sing the ave maria & the sash tae
the Prodicents till one time he sang the wrong song tae the wrong people
and they heated the money up and scalded his hands with it.

Rab drew his first breath in No. 24, Thornwood Drive. 1940. Bombs were dropping. No wonder it was a quick labour!
