Hi Jin C

Yes I remember all the neighbours you are speaking of.
There was also another two I remember Mr & Mrs Crawford and Nan Udale,
I think that was Nan's maiden name.
I lived on the landing below.
I lived at 116 from 1955-63.
I have attached photo of bridge at the bottom of the brae.
I have many more of cowcaddens & port Dundas, The High Craighall Road ones are hard to find.

Hi Baldybane,
I also lived at 116, I would say from 1950 to about 1958. Mrs Crawford was my mother and Nan was her best friend. I lived on the top flat looking out over the back yard and shelters. Your initials wouldn`t happen to be J.D. by any chance. I have a few pictures of High Craighall Rd but the are aerial views and cant really see the front of the building. I have been trying for about 10 years to get a picture of the old street but it has been like looking for hens teeth, even the ones I have were sent by friend on the internet and Forums like GG.
Would you remember Mr. Biggar, Mr. & Mrs Flemming and Big Tilly or her grand daughter Betty something, all lived in the ground floor? How about McBeans, Harvey`s Distillery, Sadie Wade (Lawrie ) who had the wee sweetie shop and Ella Wade her daughter, John Donachie Kathleen Hodge or Mervin Rielly. I recognise and have all the pictures but having trouble with the last one, where is it Glad to have bumped into somebody from the close.

All The Very Best.
JimC.

Hi Ceaderbhoy,
Aye I do remember this house, if you walked out of the close where I lived at # 116 High Craighall Rd. and walked accross the road you would have walked right into the front gate shown in the picture. I remember a large wooden door just to the right of it before going down a wee hill towards what we called the Sugary Brae which then led you on to Low Craighall Rd. I believe they owned a wee Scottish Terrier dog, it used to chase us if we climbed over their wall and tried to steal...... I mean borrow some of their rhubarb that they had growing in the backyard.
I dont think it was down nearer to Borron St, looking at the background it shows the old distillery buildings which would be right. As you got closer to Borron St the background changed and became the yards of Brownlee City & Sawmills. Good picture though, Thanks, any more ?
All The Very Best
JimC

Hi JimC,

The house across the road with the dog had three tenants, one of them being my
Mother in Law & Father in Law named Minnie & Bobby. I married their son Billy Ross,
I'm Cathie Ross.
I knew your mother well, she was a very helpful person, your mother asked me to alter a pair
of trousers for her son, making them into drainpipes, as drainpipes were just coming into the shops.
I also dressed a doll for your sister for her Christmas.
I have added some pictures of people that you may know by sight.

Bobby Wade was a friend of my husband.

The pictures are....

1...Men from high craighall road/eagle street in innis's pub
...Billy Ross 4th from left, Jim Ross (brother of Billy) standing (left),
Bobby Ross (glass to mouth on right).

2.....Bus run with Men from high craighall road/eagle street.

3....Outside Mini Ross's house (at back of 52 High Craighall road)
...Billy Ross,Betty Ritchie (Girl that stayed with Tillie),Cathie Ross,Bobby Ross.
4...Inside single end at 116 High craighall road..
.Betty Ritchie,Mini Ross,Jim Ross,Susan Ross,Cathie Ross,Bobby Ross.

Hi Baldybane,
My mother told me she took in my pants and charged me a tanner, ohmy.gif only kiddin. I remember when drainpies were all the fashion the only problem was getting them off when you came home tired late at night and dead tired but thanks for doing them for me and thanks for making my sister Betty doll look better.
That is the first picture I`v seen of Betty Ritchie since we moved, brings back old memories, my mother used to make me go on bus runs with her, Tilley used to call me The Nice Wee Boy Fae The Top Flat. Right!!!!! mind you we used to bring her the Sunday papers coming home from chapel.
The pictures look great but have a wee bit of trouble recognizing anybody, you wouldn`t have any pictures of the street would you ?? My Mom and Dad passed away about four years ago and you are right she was a very caring person, as long as you didn`t get her angry. I still wonder to this day how we all stayed in that Single End and it didn`t seem to bother us , four of us in a one room flat, I guess when you didn`t have much you made the best of what you had.
Hope you keep in touch.
All The Very Best.
JimC.

Hi Baldybane,
I meant to mention in my last post to you that if you go into YouTube and type in the search window A Glasgow Birthday Wish and open it I think you might enjoy some of the old pictures. My son made this little video for my 65th birthday from when I was born to the present, there are some old pictures of my parents, my sister and myself as well as some pictures of High Craighall Rd past and present I think you will enjoy them.
I will enlarge the pictures you sent and take a wee closer look at the faces and see if I can recognize some of them ande let you know.
All The Very Best.
JimC

Mantlepiece .if I find any good Photo's I will send them on

hi Jim C

I found some more aerial photos, showing 116 High Craighall road.
These are old probably from 1932.
On the last photo (a zoomed in version of previous photos)...
116 is to the left of the row of tenements, with 110 adjoining it to the right,
then number ? (Seeetie shop),
then 100 (in white, had been knocked down when I was there).
115 is the house opposite the tenements (this was also known as 52 from the low road.

Thanks Baldybane
I can see the front of the old building, I think that has been the first picture I have seen since we left back in the 50`s. What do you think of these. Anyone you recognize, or where the picture was taken You should ??? All The Very Best. JimC.
