Hi there,
Loved reading this page!! Recognised lots of names. I moved to Caprington Street as a baby in '57 and lived there 'til I was 16 in '73. Our surname was McMillan - 6 of us. My friends and people I remember are,
Caprington St: McPhee family, Ross family, Clements family, Finlay and Finlayson, Dunn's, Hynds, O'Neil.
Craighouse St: McCann's (Teresa was my wee pal as a child), Campbells, (went to school with Anne) Duke's, Webb's (Ruth was in my class) Winchcoles (terrorised me!!) McHaffie's. To name but a few.
Had a great childhood - there was a group of us who went everywhere on our bikes - even to Kirkintilloch Swimming!! kenny McMaster, Alan Kennedy, Joe Clark, James Clements, Liz McNair, Carol Clements. Could go on all night. If you remember me, or any of the above, please leave your comments. Ta xx

I was conceived at a Hogmany party in 1965 at the Great Western Road high flats in Glasgow. The evening had started in Curlers Bar before Ronnie Gordon an Engineer gave out the invites. 9 months later I was adopted to a family in 1966. My birth dad found out somehow and went to my birth mums door in Drumchapel just hours after I had been given away. His name was Brian (surname unknown). He would have been about 19 back then and only about 5' 4" or 5". A fashionable dresser, and wore a smart green duffel coat. Ronald sadly died a few years ago and I'm unable to get any further information there. Another lady at the party was Joan Watson from Cloan Ave, Drumchapel. She emigrated to Canada and became a nurse. My birth mum has no more information to give. I believe Brian may have been a friend of George Harwood a Painter & Decorator from Pendeen Crescent, Barlanark. He sadly has passed away also. Does this ring a bell with anyone? My real dad knew about me and could never do anything to find me. 47 years on can you help me find him please? I would be very grateful and maybe you could PM me if you have any information. Many thanks.

Hi there. I am Allan Dickson and moved to Ruchazie in about 1955 to live at 20 Borthwick Street. Initially we we all had to attend Riddrie Primary school until Ruchazie Primary opened in about 1957. My family emigrated to Rhodesia in 1958 but overs the years we have migrated further south and now live in Cape Town.

In planning for a visit down memory lane next year I came across this wonderful website. What a let down to see that not only has our old close been demolished but also Ruchazie Primary school. Very very sad.

At school I can remember well the following people - John Eagleton, William MacNiven, Valerie Miller ( my first love) and Rosemary Livingstone amongst others. Does anyone recognize these names and have any information on them?

Allan Dickson.

Hi. My family lived in Claypotts Road from 1952 to 1969. I went to St Phillips and St Gregory's. Lived next door to Anne Rosie and across the road from Linda Smith. My best pal at school was Deborah Brady. Played with Theresa MCann, Anne Campbell, Caroline Byrne and Anne Cassidy. Family moved to Cranhill in 1969. I moved to the Highlands with my husband in 1980 but came back to Glasgow in 1986 and back to the East End. Does anyone have school photographs of St Phillips Primary from 62-67? Happy days back then.

Hi I'm Frank, never lived in Ruchazie, we lived in Abercromby Street, in the Gallowgate, but, my uncle, auntie, and cousins stayed in Bankend Street, either 25 or 35 , I think. Harry Mullen stayed above them. Was going there until mid 70's, when they moved elsewhere, Springburn, I think. Joe Stenhouse was my uncle, Mary his wife, Josephine (Josey), Jim (Rocky), Andrew, Ann, and Elizabeth, are my cousins.

Anybody remember them? Maybe I even knew you back in the day!!

Dear Steve H, This is Ian Hamilton. I lived at 8 Dunnottar St from 1954 till 1970 when my parents, John and Barbara, moved to Newlands. I also remember the McFarlanes, Floods, Thompsons, Nolans, Services, Clarks. Because I didn't go to Garthamlock school I quickly lost touch with folk. After Strathclyde University, I went to study theology at Edinburgh university and became a minister (I became a Christian in my late teens). I am now the minister of Cambridge Presbyterian Church (south of the border, but it's ok!). I am married with four children and now four grandchildren. How time flies. What are you up to? Are you in touch with any folk from number 8? I am presently in the USA speaking at some conferences, but there is no place like home. I remember Ruchazie with affection,mp laying in the fields, walking to H/Loch, bicycling to the Capsies, hide and seek in the sugarolly mountains (do you remember them?). Hope you are well. Warmest greetings Ian H
