I am trying find out for you when the estate was built.The original estate has expanded and new factories have replaced some of the older ones.I do know that a soap factory was opened there in 1988 (Soapworks,which was started by Annita Roddick,now of Body Shop fame) so it must be at least 20 years.Older and wiser people than me may able to come up with the exact date.When did you leave Easterhouse? biggrin.gif

I lived at 14 Horndean crescent from when I was born until 1982 when we moved to Carntyne. Dad had lung cancer and couldn't manage the stairs anymore so we got the extra points needed to enable us to move. I lived opposite primary school and the 'new' nursery school.

Further to previous posts, I don't remember it being a catholic scheme. There was a mix - the primary school was non-denominational and loads of us went to Garthamlock Secondary.

I remember the wonderful views we had across Glasgow from our top floor flat. I'm looking for photos for research for a book I am writing, so if anyone could help I'd be very grateful.

Cheers!

Hello folks.

I've updated the wikipedia page on Quenslie (see link below) and would love to hear everyone's thoughts on it.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Queenslie

I grew up in 82 Horndean Crescent and lived there for 20 years and loved the place to bits.....still miss the community to this day.

Still bump into loads of people from Queenslie and the immediate thing that happens is laughter as we think back about the old place. Still a bit confused why they never developed a mix of private and rented houses on the site as it was the ideal place to do so.

If anyone has any photos I'll happilly upload them to the wiki website or add any other relevant info.

All the best
Eddie

Hi folks I lived at 86 horndean crescent ( I think - My memory isn't what it used to be.) We left when I was 7 or 8 years old. Anyway we lived on the ground floor. Mum and dad were Helen and Fred Toms and kids were Bryan, Raymond and Derek. I had pals called Thomas dickson upstairs and brian and alan devlin next close. There was wully Jamieson up at the top of the crescent and several others I canny remember, lol.

I would be good to see some pictures of the old place.

Anyone remember us?
