Hi TOM

I just came back from there after spending 5 weeks with my brother.We used to live on Sandbank St so i know the area well .The part of canal you are talking about was called the Butnay the area has all been cleaned up and they have fancy barges going up and down the canal.If you are interested about other parts of the canal try the web site www.falkirkbairns.com

Hi there Maggie how did a nice Glasgow girl like you end up in Yankee land its a far cry from pushing bags of charcoal along the canal banks.
When did you last return to your old haunts and how long have you been away ?.
I've received an email from Peter who used to be on the board a few years ago asking about Maryhill Cross I told him to look at Virtual Mitchell under Maryhill and he will find it on page 18.
I guess you new where it was as you passed it on the way to school.
