I'm posting this on behalf of my mum. Does anyone remember Garden Street in Townhead? She was born there in 1947 and lived there for several years. It never seems to be mentioned anywhere. She remembers that there was only 5 closes on Garden Street, 3 on one side, two on the other. The neighbouring Streets were Weaver St, Paul St and Taylor St. I would appreciate any information.

The street that ran parallel to Stanhope street was St Mungo street

It ran from Parly road to Stirling road

The last street on the left off parson street before Castle street was Martyr street

i am trying to find any info on a james kelly-patricia kelly who stayed at 135 parson street in 1956. they were witnesses to my aunts wedding. sad.gif

I cannot recall them and I lived there from about 1951 to 1959. I was born 1948 What floor were they on? There was only one house on the ground floor I was on top floor with the Kilpatricks and another family I think was the Reids. On the way up I passed the Knoxes, McCambridges, Crowleys.
I am John Scott

hi john i lived at 37 stanhope st at parson st am sure it was called lymburns pub in the 1950s used to get my dad out it so we could get our pie suppers on a friday night nice to find someone so close to where i lived my name is charlie gillan

Hi Charlie your not the first to mention lymburns pub so it must have been that at some time. My dad was a regular from about 1951 to 1960. I was aged 3 - 12 but I mind it was run by Ownie presumably Owen at that time. Nice to talk about this area with another local.

Hi Just reading all the stories about the Townhead or Toonheid as we referred to it I was born in Tam James, 27 Ronald Street, I had three brothers Billy, Walter and Wallace, three sisters Molly, Betty and Sandra. I went to St David's School then Kennedy Street, I run about with Ronnie Patrick my bessy mate then there was the Sideserfs, Fadyen's and the Marrs. Does anybody remember Scabby Bens the chip shop, we used to go roon the doors collecting newspapers for him so we'd get a bag of chips for nothing.
