Sorry about the dublicate photos, wasn`t sure how to delete the doubles without deleting everything. At least it will give you a second chance to view the pictures.
All The Very Best.

Hi Jim C,

I don't recognise any of the people in the backyard photo.
I take that's your mum and sister.
It is the back court of 116, it had a dunney thats why you cant see the close very well.
The smaller windows are the outside toilets.
I lived above the close, at the front.

The h_g_ photo shows the waste ground between eagle street and 116.
Do you know what the wooden hut is on high craighall road, there appears to be a man standing near it,
(at the bottom of the railings of the eagle street houses).
Don't recognise the people in this photo either.

Mrs Fleming was before my time, I heard she done the stairs and kept the place looking nice.

Hi baldybane
Aye, your right on the first photo, it is my mother Agnes and my sister Betty. You cant see our window but it was right above the one behind my mom on the top flat.
The old shed you are speaking about was actually an old railway carriage, and the owner used to keep and repair his motorcycles in it, we used to climb up on top of it, it was covered with sheets of corrugated tin and we were forever ripping our pants on the screws when trying to slide off it.
The people in the photograph are from left to right looking at it, Ella Wade ( Sadie Wade`s daughter) next is Mary Corrigan, my sister Betty and Mervin Rielly who lived up the next close, I thought you might have recognised Ella.
All The Very best.
JimC

I've just come across this thread and I'm very thankful for all the pictures and info. My great great grandfather lived at 116 in 1890, and I've never seen a photo of it until now. Thanks!

Aye Cathy,
That would be her, a lot younger than what I remember and a bit taller but I recognize the face. I guess we all get a wee bit on the shorter side as we get older but I can still see her standing looking at you with her arms crossed as though you had just done something wrong. Mind you, at eight years old you were always doing something wrong.
All The Very Best
JimC

I used to live at number 100 during 1934 to 1952 our family name is Burns, it would be kind if anyone remembers or has old photographs.

Hi JimC My name was Anne Burns and I lived at no 100 1934 to 1954 The house across the road from the bakery was owned by an old couple I called Auntie Bessie and Uncle Neelie. Mrs Corbett lived with them. When I was young, only a Mrs Munro and her son Stuart lived with the old couple. Stuart was my special friend he had asthma and excema. The boys of the street were too rough for him so I spent lots of time with him in that very interesting house. Ground floor there were5 bedrooms the piano room and Stuart's enormous playroom
Down a spiral stair were the kitchen and a large laundry. Sadly, my wee friend died at about 10 yrs.around 1945. He had gone to a convalescent home for a short stay but he and another boy ran away and they slept the night under a bush. Stuart died covered in snow. I have never forgotten Stuart and I have tried to find info about his death but no luck. I know that it was all over the Glasgow newspapers at the time.

hi Cathy 52, I did Know Mrs Weir she often visited my mum on the middle landing. She would sit on the chair beside the kitchen door and her arms were always folded. She must have been into her 80s. She would stay a long time and my mum would go ahead making the dinner while they chatted. Anne
