Hi Margaret,
My family moved in to 26 Drumbeg Drive when it was brand new in 1950, the last house beside the shops. Right across from us they built Newfield Square. We couldnae stand being away from the auld tenements, and moved back to the south side in 1952.

mad.gif Hi Jimmy and all, yes jimmy you are so right about keeping me awake at night.
Jimmy used to hang around with my brother, Walter Maclean at our corner, and a few others. They thought they were the bees knees, just because they knew the words to the songs, I'm sure my wee daddy was up at the corner complaining most nights.
Those were the days....Anne

[SIZE=14] Hi Everyone on this page.

If you check out "LOST FRIENDS AND RELATIVES" Page under

Househillwood Roundabout / Bundy You will find lots of people from Priesthill , Houshillwood. The Bundy and Pollock. It might take a wee while for everyone to get back on but we had 23 pages spanning 2 years on the page before the server crashed.

Hope to see you all over there.
