Hi Guest you are quite correct insaying that brownlees was situated at Possil Cross,I inadvertently put in Dobbies Loan instead of the Largest City sawmill that stretched from Craighall Rd to halfway up Borron St and from Possil Cross to Coldstream Place off Keppochhill Rd wub.gif I believe there was a coal ree based near this site with railway lines..sorry for wrong details
but i'm afraid that the house that the lady is looking for,are in the distant pass, the only way she would recognise anything is the wall of Rockvilla school is still standing and the Aqueduct [ bridge]where trams/buses passed underneath Cheers FLIM

Hi Ann Matheson there is a library book which shows part of Possil Rd in a photograph you can see through the mist thr houses that once stood there [ modern and old tenement,also in the photo you will observe to your left Brownlees sawmill and on your right Rockvilla school[ the wall still remains] the name of the book is old COWCADDENS.POSSILPARK&LAMBHILL by Andrew Stuart hope this helps Cheers

Hi, could you say where in Scotland your mother originally came from. her age group, perhaps the type of work she did, this would perhaps help in your search, perhaps she remarried, If she married originally in Scotland you'd get her address from marriage certificate. Was Bennnett her maiden name? Good Luck in your search. smile.gif

Does anyone know of guys called , John Johnston, Mat MaGee, Sammy Muir or Ricky Hart. From Glasgow, they were in HLI then Royal Scots 58 to 60..Berlin.

Hi, I had a cousin by the name of John Johnston but I am not sure if it's the same fellow that you are looking for, if your mate had a brother and a couple of sisters then it's him, if not, then good luck. Anne

Hi Anne Sawmill Road was a short road that linked South Street and Dumbarton Road at Thornwood in Partick there is about 40 foot of it left as they have built a motorway on top of it. It is opposite Balshagrey School (which is now an annex of Anniesland College) at the Thornwood roundabout. The nearest schools would have been Balshagrey, Thornwood and Whiteinch or if they were catholic it would have been St Pauls in Whiteinch ther used to be a licenced grocer on the corner and a pawn shop on the opposite corner both having entrances on Sawmill Road I think there may only have been 5 or 6 closes in the road and i think the houses were demolished in the late sixties cheers Hugh
