I lived at 14 Horndean crescent from when I was born until 1982 when we moved to Carntyne. Dad had lung cancer and couldn't manage the stairs anymore so we got the extra points needed to enable us to move. I lived opposite primary school and the 'new' nursery school.

Further to previous posts, I don't remember it being a catholic scheme. There was a mix - the primary school was non-denominational and loads of us went to Garthamlock Secondary.

I remember the wonderful views we had across Glasgow from our top floor flat. I'm looking for photos for research for a book I am writing, so if anyone could help I'd be very grateful.

Cheers!

Five Years ago the text linked to a picture of Queenslie PS. Luckily Queenslie 1957 has lifted the photo from the Canmore site and uploaded it to Glasgow Guide.
The Going Home link is also dead.

You'll find more photos of Queenslie here

Your right Nettie, it's the Queenslie Industrial Estate and as I remember the front building was the Olivetti Typewriter Factory.

We moved to Barlanark in April 1953 and always got off the bus the stop after the Industrial Estate as there were only the Green SMT buses went past Barlanark at that time as Barlanark was just being built.
It was terrible getting on buses to travel to school in town as they came from Airdrie through Coatbridge and Bargeddie, so by the time they got to Barlanark they were nearly always full, so we were often late for school. rolleyes.gif

Hello folks.

I've updated the wikipedia page on Quenslie (see link below) and would love to hear everyone's thoughts on it.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Queenslie

I grew up in 82 Horndean Crescent and lived there for 20 years and loved the place to bits.....still miss the community to this day.

Still bump into loads of people from Queenslie and the immediate thing that happens is laughter as we think back about the old place. Still a bit confused why they never developed a mix of private and rented houses on the site as it was the ideal place to do so.

If anyone has any photos I'll happilly upload them to the wiki website or add any other relevant info.

All the best
Eddie
