Hi everyone. this is my first time here.

How far have you got with this Lennox?
I was born in Willow Street, Temple in 1938 and lived at 6 Linden Place in the 1960s.

What was your Grannie's name? And when are we talking about?

Maybe I'll remember something.
Jim

HI , first time on this site, it is great. I was born in Bearsden Road, Temple.[right across from the police station] We used to play up the Nollie [canal] and my friends granda was the lock keeper and lived in the house at the top of Crow Road which is now a pub. Many times i had witnessed friends falling in the canal but thankfully none fatal. As children my sisters and i used to play up the Glennifer which was situated between the lock keepers house and the piggery. The Glennifer had old air raid shelters and we used to dare each other to go down. Dont think i ever did. Used to also play in the woodyards [Temple Sawmills] until the wolfman came along and chased us out.[He was the wathchie with a big dog] Oh! good memories.

I remember that too Lennox and the place that made the barrels was Agnew's Cooperage. My pal's dad was the lock-keeper at Ruchill for a number of years.

hi Flam, yes! his name was Alec Dunsmore. We used to play in all the old cars at the side of the house. My friends family also lived in a caravan inthe garden at the other side of the house until they moved to Bearsden Road.

Hi, there - some of you have been talking about Lock 27, which is now a pub, but was a house for the lockkeeper at Temple Locks. If you go to my website
www.mycityglasgow.co.uk
and choose 'links' and 'my favourites', you will see, in pictures taken around 25 years ago, the wee house at Lock 27 (sadly neglected), but before the pub was conceived.

My wee house in Anniesland is just along from Lock 27. I love to walk along the canal and see the ducks and the swans. Jaybee

I like to go to the Lock 27 for lunch Jaybee - it is really nice in the good weather as you can sit outside and have a drink and watch the world go by.

Yes MHG, I have done that and it is lovely on a nice day. Don't like it at night though, it can be rowdy. Seems the young people move in then. Jaybee

In response to jean55' s posting re. Alec Dunsmore -- I remember Alec Dunsmore well -- In the very early '70s there was a group of us rode motorcycles around that area of Temple and Knightswood and Alec was a goldmine of information on almost anything mechanical... This was back in the day when you repaired and maintained your own machinery and any time you found yourself stuck for a spare part or stumped by a mechanical problem then it was time to pay a call to Alec and that was how I met him through a mutual friend... He was probably in his 60s then and man, did he make a first impression - I doubt if he was more than 5 feet tall, tough as nails, not a hair on his head and about three teeth to his name, feisty as hell but when you started to talk about machinery his eyes would light up with the enthusiasm of a kid on Christmas morning and he would babble for ages... He was always perched on a stool outside that little house of his on the canal bank, usually fiddling around with something mechanical and cursing up a storm and if you needed a part for something he would nod towards the back of the house where there was an entrance to a cellar that was a treasure-trove of automotive junk and you would dig through the stuff until you found what you needed or something similar that could be made to fit... You'd slip him ten bob or some beer and he was a happy man. I also remember his son ( also Alec ) who could always be found somewhere along Byres Road. After Old Alec died I recall the house being empty and derelict for a long time then it burned down and was eventually replaced by the Pub. Between Alec's house and Bearsden Rd. there was a workshop owned by a guy called Ewan - they did car repairs and painting and in '73 the place went up in flames, all those gallon cans of cellulose paint going off like cannon fire... Once the dust and smoke had settled myself and a friend put a roof on the place so he could get the business up and running again - 35 years later and we're still waiting to get paid ! Thanks, Ewan... Behind Alec's house heading towards Anniesland Cross was H.M. Murray's enormous yard - they were a construction contractor who specialised in building piers and bridges and I worked for them for a few years. I went back to take a look at the old neighborhood after being gone for many years and felt like a stranger - I couldn' t believe my own eyes when I saw ducks and even a couple of swans in the canal and new houses everywhere... Lots of happy memories though...

Temple Farm on Crow Rd was not technically a farm.
It was a milk bottling plant. It had a dairy shop, and delivered milk to houses in a wide area by horses and carts. It had a big house and stables. The Farm was owned by James Pirie. Two children Ann and Jim.
James also had a farm on Bearsden Rd (Switchback) close to Canniseburn Toll.

This was a real Farm with milking cows. However Pirie gathrered milk from Farms all over.

The other Farm was renrwd.

The truck driver was called Rudi, a German POW.

I moved to Temple Gardens in 1936, I was 30 days old. I grew up playing in Piries, delivering and collecting milk. The big house was bought by the Valenties, who owned the ice cream shop facing on Crow Rd. The Farm on Bearden Rd, was part of Garscube Estate, owned by Glasgow University.

The dairy in Linden St was the SCWS. Never Piries.
Jim Pirie became a professional Golfer.
