Poppy, I was up the Cowcaddens about two years ago and noticed Corn Street has been moved to the opposite side of the road. It was very confusion as the whole area has been changed

I lived in Sawfield Place, but we moved to Barlanark when it was being built. Although I was still at School when we moved, I still remember the area quite well.

Funny thing is, just last night I came across a photo of my father-in-law taken at the fountain that was in the grounds at the bottom of the swing park.

Jupiter,

Corn St run from Garscube Rd up to Phoneix Park Terrace Edington Street on the left across from it Civic St.
If you walked from Corn St along Edingtton St you came to Sawmill Field St in other words from
one end of the Leckie to the other which ran along one side of Edington St to the other
with houses on other side of the street.

Jupiter, I think you and Heather had this discussion before. Sawfield Place and Sawmillfield St are 2 different streets. Sawfield Place, where Heather and my mum lived, was a dead-end street with only 1 close and was where the Pheonix cinema stood. I think Speirs Wharf Studios now stands across where the street was but it might be Chubb. There is a photo somewhere on the boards of Sawfield Place. Mary smile.gif

Aye your righr Mary.

The Phoenix was bought over by a Mr Dunn and he changed the name to the Endrick

Coming down the Garscube Road from the Round Toll on the left had side, there was Caithness Street, Sawmillfield Street, Sawfield Place, Corn Street and Dobbies Loan.

It's all different now, and that's why I was surprised to see Corn Street on the other side of the Road, the same side as New City Road.
There was hardly any pavement on the side where the swing park used to be, but there was a lot of road work being done there. It looked like it was going to be an underpass, but as I have not been up that way again it may well be something different.

I am planning to visit Glasgow in the next month or so to visit the street where my father was born in 1920. My problem is that I have never been to Glasgow before and I know very little about the geography of the city. The name of the street I am looking for is Phoenix Park Terrace. Does this street still exist? Can anyone tell me how to find it?

Regards,
John McAdam

Hi Robert and Carol, I lived at 69 Edington Street from 1956 until 1967. My mum and dad were Cathie and Jim Tierney, and I went to St. Joseph's Primary School. It would be great to hear from anyone from my days in the Cowcaddens.

Hi Jim
I remember you and your mum and dad well. You were a couple of years younger than me but we played football in the street together. You lived up the same close as Alec Marshall while Billy McNaught was in the next close at No 75. I lived in No 97. Do you remember the old Edington Street bus runs to Saltcoats? We got a pie , buns and tea and played football on the green at the sea front. Am attaching a photo from the bus run think it is 1964 or 1965. From back L to R: Billy McNaught, Alec Marshall, Michael Rooney (Scotia Street), ME. Front L to R: Alec's Cousin (don't remember his name), a young Jim Tierney, Kevin McManus (Billy's cousin from Nitshill).

Hi. My gran's cousin Robert Gunn Masterton 1891-1953 was a police constable in Glasgow and from 1920-1925 he lived in 33 Phoenix Park Terrace. I am trying to find out if he stayed at this address (his mail went c/o Gordon) after 1925. He had served in the Queen's Regiment for 5 1/2 years in WW1 and then joined the police. He left under a cloud in 1925 and the next thing I know about him is when he turned up in the ex workhouse in Skipton Yorkshire in 1940.
I would love to find out what happened to him after he was 'asked' to resign from the police and if he was OK. If anyone has any information I would really appreciate it.

Hi there, I am currently doing some family history work. My father was born in Glasgow and what I can gather he lived from 1955 - 1958ish at 34 Phoenix Park Terrace. Does anyone remember Jean (Kelly) & Leslie Nicolson who lived there with their baby boy Leslie? And sorry what was the name of the street currently? Thanks for the help in advance.
