Phyllis Neeson. I remember you and your brother Ian we all played together 'Doon the Dale' You and your family left the 'Buildings' and moved to Cadder around the late 50's early 60's. We used to play in the big house at the end of the cottages where I lived. In the next close to you were the Stallons 2 brothers and a sister Connie. If this brings back memories perhaps you can share them here.

  My father, John Ainscough, worked as an industrial chemist in the laboratory in the Kelvindale Paper Mill between 1946 and 1951. We moved up to Glasgow after his demobilisation from the RAF in 1946 and lived in Stonefield Avenue. I remember walking with him to the mill on a number of occasions - I was just a small boy in those days. We left to go back to Lancashire when a better job in a sister mill came up in his home town of Horwich. I went back to Glasgow for a week in 2001 - 50 years after last seeing it all - a it was a nostalgic and fascinating experience.

  You are both wrong. The Dawsholm Paper mill was further up Maryhill and was accessed by the road next to St Marys chaple just opposite the entrance to Maryhill Rd.

The Kelvindale Paper Mill was Edward Collins Paper Mill and was part of the Associated Paper Mills Group.

After checking I believe the paper mill was called the Dawsholm Paper Mill

  I remember the Wedderburns they lived next door to the Neesons. I lived in 12 Kelvindale Cottages. The photo of 41 has been incorrectly identified as the cottages it is in fact Kelvindale Buildings. My Mothers whole family lived and worked in the mill. Their names were (Grandfather Willie Dowling. Uncle Willie Dowling, Mother Mary Dowling Married name Buntain Aunty Betty Dowling married name Meikle Sister Maureen Buntain Sister Elizabeth Buntain and myself Frank Buntain). My grandfather came from N Ireland to work with the mill horses he was a farrier. My uncle was a guillotine operator. My mother was a finisher. My aunt worked in the lab. My 2 sisters were overhaulers. I was a broke boy in the cutting room. It was a great place to grow up. If this helps to jog some memories I would like to hear them.

  Just reminiscing and have read through all the posts. Interested to read of Wuillie Davidson. I worked in the laboratory from 1954 to 1961 minus two years when on national Service. Wuillie used to come down from the Finishing Dept every morning and afternoon for his tea breaks, the Lab was the only place he was allowed to smoke his pipe, and always on a Monday morning would tell us stories about the game he had refereed on Saturday. He was quite a big man with a real head of dark wavey hair going grey. The Cutting Room was next to the Laboratory and the Finishing Dept was on the floor above. The Chief Chemist was David Provan and his deputy was Harry Sherriff. Bill Stewart, John Rutherford (I think was his name), and Bert Whiteside, were the other lab staff. I know that Harry died some years ago but haven't heard of anyone else since I left. Bob Lambie was the Head Finisher, Bob Scorgie was General Manager succeeded by Ian McKechnie. All the best to any who remember!
