I ran about Nitshill and drunk at some time in all the boozers in this order I think, The Railway inn, The Volunteer Arms, The Levern, The Cavy, The Oak, I lived on Peat Rd and then Pinmore St.

I have not lived in Nitshill for 28 years, but had a pint in Jeannie Gebbies last week. GG

hi, only found the site recently.

I lived in Nitshill from 1960 -1981 drunk in all the usual pubs The Railway , The Levern, The Cavy, Royal oak,oh and the Househill Tavern.

Lived initially on Peat Rd 371, then Pinmore St 62. Now live in England I had a run through Nitshill only last week and had a drink in the Hurlet and Jeannie Gebbies.

No time to look anyone up , only attending a funeral and returning to England.

I dont think the place around the nitshill shops area has changed that much in all these years ,apart from there being a lot less pubs to choose from.

I'm trying to find info on George Harwood who was a painter from the East End but drank in the Trade Winds. He was a friend of my dad Brian. Brian knows about me but found out just after I had been adopted. Any info greatly appreciated. Many thanks midgetgem1966@hotmail.com
