Surnom Vert,

When I was at school I palled about with a girl from Forge Street,
she lived in the now demolished tenements.
Although it's practically "a lifetime" since I was there, I remember it pretty well. The piggery you spoke about was where Royston Road met Garnkirk Street.

I should have said that the piggery was was not in use at that time so it obviously closed many years before. People still referred to it though. I hope I have the street name right but it was either Garnkirk St. or Darnick St.

That is Darnick Street. Funnily enough though I think the railway that ran over the blind tunnel was originally called the Glasgow & Garnkirk Railway.

Hi surnom vert,

I remember the blind tunnel okay, took a short cut through it many times to get to Petershill Road.

Don't know the name of the bridge over it though--you are probably correct though smile.gif

Not 100% sure where Tommy lived Valros, but he went to Onslow Drive school.
Ages wey masel.
If memory serves me, he lived across the molendiner burn, near Gallagher's fag factory.
Worked at the Barras.
Tommy made these wee pieces to order.
he used to trawl the building sites looking for suitable material.
These are all made from ordinary building bricks
Here is another one, bit more recogniseable.
Well, it might be, if ah kid take a decent photie.


THIS ONE IS THE SARRY HEID PUB IN THE GALLOWGATE AM SURE YOU CAN JUST MAKE OUT THE SARACAN NAME AND THE HOUSES ABOVE IT

Got an answer to my e-mail from the book place, they told me to search on Amazon but I can't see it on that site. Will ask my son to have a look in the book shops.

Davie,
What I've been looking for is a book with photos of the old Garngad and Townhead.
I probably would not recognise the places because everything is all changed now. I would like to see photos of the places though. If you ever come across such a book, will you get the title for me please? Thank you.

Valros

If it's any good tae ye I've got a collection of over 60 photos of Toonheid and Parliamentary road scraped up from the internet over the years-some of them REALLY hard to find-send me a PM and I'll mail whatever your looking for back to ye
