I am trying find out for you when the estate was built.The original estate has expanded and new factories have replaced some of the older ones.I do know that a soap factory was opened there in 1988 (Soapworks,which was started by Annita Roddick,now of Body Shop fame) so it must be at least 20 years.Older and wiser people than me may able to come up with the exact date.When did you leave Easterhouse? biggrin.gif

My aunt was rehoused in Queenslie from the gallowgate in the 1950's think it was mid 50's. The soapwork you mention is where my daughter works but thats only in the past 3 years for her . I worked in the canda 1955 which made clothes for the C&A its now gone also . Queenslie industrial estate was a hive of industry and provided work for the people in the eastend of the city also others .

The Queenslie Estate used to be a bit of a landmark.

When we moved to Barlanark we knew we were near our bus stop when we came to the Queenslie. I used to live 10 minute's walk from School but after moving to Barlanark, I did not get home until 5 0'clock as the bus was every 20 minutes on the hour.

I remember when I was learning to drive a car, my husband used to give me extra driving lessons and it was always around the streets in the Queenslie Estate.

AHH the canda,my mum Alice worked there for years as a presser,making clothes as you say for C&A,and also john stevens of carnaby street,she worked there from the early 60s,i was a bad boy and got nicked for spray painting the wall that ran along the outside,trust me to get nabbed at ma mums work,i remember walking along the to[p end of the scheme where it looked down ontot he estate,especially the SLD. with all the big diggers wow what i wouldnt have given to get ma hands on one of those way back then lol.i took my two sons up to look at the old place and try to show themwhere i was brought, up this was about 14/15 years ago and the scheme was gone then.the feeling i had was wierd it might sound soppy but i was very upset about this important piece of my past not being there to share with my sons.Due to a fire in my mothers house (in cumbernauld)i lost all photographs of the old place so if you have any that you could send me i would appreciate it,any at all doesnt matter what the subject matter is,i managed to save about 2/3 one was of me william baird and tam Mcbain wie johnny seven guns,and alky Mac Millan in a dalek suit lol ...

My Aunt lived in Queenslie (but we called it Easterhouse). This would be the late 50s early 60s. My mother also worked in the Mine Safety in the Estate. Don't know when the houses went though. Jaybee

The house's just past the Queenslie Estate were called Queenslie. The next house's came under Easterhouse.

I was surprised to see a C & A Store in Cracow, Poland, I thought they were out of business.
