We are currently trying to research our family tree, I see that your dad's parents' lived at number 19 Martyr Street Glasgow as our grand parents did in the 1920's-30's? and our dad was born. Their names were Thomas and Helen Hamilton (nee Joynes) and had five children. If you can give me any information about them or any surviving relatives you may be aware of we would be very grate ful Many thanks.

My email address is jilliancole@googlemail.com

I am also looking for some information regarding Helen Hamilton (nee Joynes), 19 Martyr Street, Glasgow.

From what I can gather, Helen was married to a Thomas Hamilton in 1923. From the above quote, I see she had 5 children with Thomas.

In 1934, Helen married again, this time to a George Dayer (my great-grandfather). She went onto have another 7 children with George.

I am trying to piece together Helen's life prior to meeting George and any information would be greatly appreciated.

Some more info on Helen:

Parents: Albert Edward Joynes and Annie Charlotte Grace Joynes (nee Goddard).
Born: 1901
Lived: 19 Martyr Street.

If anyone has any information, please email me: steven.beattie@hotmail.com

Many thanks!

You may be correct at the road name. According to an online map which I seen today, it was St Mungo's Street. I was not far away with Taylor/Weaver Street vicinity! They are just south of this. Just wondering, does Bartholomew have online maps? I have some where in my room an earlier Glasgow map and the Kingston Bridge is "under construction". Regarding a further search either online or tying Mitchell Library or visiting area, I cannot be sure of other street name. The link to old map i looked at is: http://www.nls.uk/digitallibrary/map/townp...w_2_centre.html . Hope this assists.

[size="6"][/size] I can remember the playpark also the taxi garage trying to think what it was called before patons took it over I stayed in 292 kennedy street next close to the mcmillans what about the lister street bowling green.

I seem to remember it being called Douglas taxis-(after the phone prefix DOU which was what all the swells with phones dialled for a taxi!)

anybody remember baird st before the motorway got constructed.black st playpark, taxi garage,the polis canteen ,that clinic?, gleebe st , we lived at 9 baird st[attachment=13133:baird_st_1962.jpg]

The sawmill on the right was Frasers Sawmill, working there was the first job I had on leaving school the box's on the pavement were made from wood from the 'Box Shop' this was when there was still a demand for wooden box's, at that time their main customers for wooden box's were the whisky distillers, the rest of the building was the sawmill part of the company with the the space all the way down to North Wallace st being taken up with stock.

On the corner of North Wallace st and Baird st was the company head office with more wood cutting machinery inside the building so it was a big company that was lost to Glasgow when the motorway was built as it moved to Grangemouth.

Best job I ever had, everybody was the same age 15 or 16, stupid and it seemed as if we were getting paid to play in between wee bits of working. biggrin.gif thumbup.gif
Only reason I left was because a promised apprentiship never materialised

At the left hand side of the photo just outside it was the wee corner shop where we used to buy our buttered rolls on ham in the morning.

I lived at 66 Black st at that time and that 'clinic' was 67.

Loved the old toonheid.

I lived in Montrose St. Went to st Mungos Primary. I see they have changed the name of Montrose St to Allan Glen Drive or something like that. Mr Cherry's shop was on Cathederal St. beside the coblers and the licenced grocer we spent our thrupence pocket money on penny lollies and sweets in Mr Cherrys and in Taylor St. you could get a penny's worth of crisps, she would open the bag and make a cone out of paper and fill it with crisps for a penny.For sixpence you could get a bowl of peas in the café and put lashings of vinegar on them - yummy. Black St swings had a big slide. I loved Townhead it was full of nice people.

Hi Margaret, I lived in Montrose Street up the next close to you. I've just written a book about the Townhead called Parly Road on Amazon Kindle. I have also set up a Facebook page called Johnboy Taylor The Glasgow Chronicles 1 that has lots of photographs relating to the story. Don't know if you'll receive this, but hope you do. Regards, Ian Todd.
