Packin' cases, oh the excitement of it all. A taxi comin' tae the door tae take ye tae the station, we never saw a taxi other than that ah don't think. Horrible elastic bathing costume ( Ah hate tae say this but there's one in the Peoples' Palace in a glass case. Think ah'll be in a glass case soon as an exhibit laugh.gif ) Ma bucket and spade, complete heaven, life could hold no more except they wee flags for yer sand pies that ye bought off the stall on the beach. Ah mind ah used to hate leaving the beach at lunch time to go back to the B & B for lunch. Imagine going back up for yer lunch, full board in those days meant yer lunch as well. My but we were posh! This was Blackpool in the fifties such happy days. smile.gif

Hello possilboy, how was Oz? I'bet the weather was better than Dunoon at the Fair. My memories of the Clyde are, Ayr, Saltcoats, Stevenston and Ardrossan. I think my mother must have been scared of boats. I remember when I was a teenager in the Sixties, going to Rothesay for the Bike Race at the September weekend. When we went to the dancing on the Saturday evening, (Can't remember the name of the big pavillion), and older boys asking the girls to carry quarter bottles of whiskey in their bags. One boy tied his bottle to his leg. Of course it fell off and smashed. His Hush Puppies were ruined, we were all Mods then. No drink allowed then. Happier days.

I think we went "doon the watter" twice, once to Dunoon and once to Rothesay, both for summer holidays. I can remember approaching the piers with Jimmy Shand type music playing.

I think one trip was on the "Waverley", now doing trips in the Thames Estuary: I saw her recently coming up to tie up at Tower Pier and they raised the Tower Bridge for her, purely for show, I think.

The other might have been on the "Queen Mary 2". I think there was a bit of resentment as she predated the Cunarder Queen Mary and was re-named when the big boat was built.

I well remember my father "going to look at the engines" - it never occurred to me that the only thing he was looking at was the bottom of a glass wink.gif

Great site, by the way. I used to live in Maryhill in the 60s and that thread brought back many memories

I remember going on the waveley to Rothsay when I was a wee girl.

Used to go to Rothsay every summer. My Mum would go down and find a place and nearer the time would send down a big wicker hamper with bed lines, towels, etc. My Dad would come and visit at week-ends. One Fair holiday the whole family was there and as usual it was raining, so my granda decided that I should be dragged in off the street to enter the "beautiful baby" contest. Well, there I was with scuffed shoes, a jeilly piece and my knickers showing and would you believe, I came in third after a wee sweetie box girtl and a wee Canadian cowboy. There was almost a riot as the audience were all Glaswegians and thought the "wee lassie frae Glasgo should huv won". Still have the newspaper cutting!!!

Side note: it's the only beauty contest I ever won!!!
