QUOTE (RonaldK @ 11th Feb 2014, 02:58am) *
I was brought up at 49 Kelvinside Ave. and remember the co-op at the bottom of the street and the old co-op funerals you could get. across the road was the hall used by NKS school lunch sittings 4s/9d for card. Two sittings Old School at 1200 and New School at 1230. Now there's no school and no street. Remember the HLI pub at the Maryhill raod corner and a fish and chip shop on the Kelvinside Ave corner. Then the church at the top of the road and Stair street coing down the other side of the hill. used to get a huggie from the flat bed trucks going up the avenue. Bottom of the avenue round the corner was a garage and across the road the concrete ground with the swings and the church I wwas baptised at and attended the 173 BB graduating from the Life Boys' that met in the NKS weating hall. I can remember the stormy night when the side wall of the tennements across the road fell out exposing the rooms which lead to families being re-located to Drumchaple and other new suburbs. I also remember Dirty Mary's shop.
My father Eddie Lived in Roland street with his sister before moving to Kelvinside Ave. Don't know the number in Roland street but the internal loo was seen as a step up.
