I lived in Queenslie from 1971 to 1973 and it was the only catholic estate in the area mounted on the top of a hill it had cranhill to the east
the GYT to the north Easterhouse to the east and south in which there was also a prison (no I was too young to go there)

we used to have a view of the sun rising in the morning on penstone rd
and the monkland canal (mostly empty) striking east to garkosh(i cant spell the name soz to all) which was a mental institution in quite the right place (easterhouse)

mostly semi detatched blocks of flats divided into four sets, each side of one open close as it was called then with a few old peeps homes near the shops

some peeps from there were cambells, fins, cassidys, bettys, spences, curries

schools we walked to were St Gregorys cranhill which also has since vanished

doctors were a walk to easterhouse

GYT estate has a name but i never could spell it let alone visit as it would be considered a beatable offence by the locals but then so was being English on a Scottish estate, sad to see it go but not totally sad lol

Think ye mean Garthamlock (GYT)? A lot of renovation has been done there recently and it's looking a lot better. Lot of nice people there, as there has always been. Like most places in Glasgow the minority give the places a bad name.

i lived in queenslie untill it got tore down. last house remaining, i believe it was the galloway's.( a close or two from mine on horndean cress) queenslie was demolised because it was a magnet for deprivation, with the estate round it the council could cut there losses and sell the land. still holds memories for me though. if you go the swingy pitch is still there

HI Lived on Horndean cres 55 to 76. The cul-de-sac backing on to Penston rd on one side Lonmay path on the other (GYT)=GARTHAMLOCK YOUNG TOI, Only one of the gang names around at the time used by teenagers trying to find a sense of community in a new enviroment.lets face it being up rooted from Parkhead ,Shettleston or Bridgeton to what amounted to a green field site must have been daunting to say the least. All my mates elder siblings went back to familar surrounding asap,or left the country altogether. My father lived there for a few years after i left and still did most of his shopping in Bridgeton where he was raised (given the chance old habits die hard).

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?
