In two weeks time i will be back in maryhill. I have been back a few times. Springbank st is a lovely wee st now but in my mind it is still the tenements i see there. Johnstones dairy, the auld newsagents and the queens cross bakery.The church at the other corner where i used tae go tae sunday school. The street where we played fitba rounders aye and even cricket. The goal post painted on the factory walls are still there likewise the cricket wickets. I will get my usual oyster frae jaconnellis and eat it on the way up maryhill road. Past northpark st where my gran lived before she moved to kirkland st. Past dunard st and then braeside st. Just round from braeside st wis a great wee shop, dougies. There if you ever had any money you could buy old cigarette cards.If you had nae money he would still let you browse through them and dream. UP roon the bend in maryhill road past the thistle bakery where we would rush tae after swimming classes at NK. Past Where NK used to be and up to the star picture hall and eastpark home. All the way to the barracks where my mum and dad finally lived. By this time my oyster is finished and i have an appetite for fish and chips again from another Jaconnelis. Great fish and chips Past the roxy. Under the canal and up tae the maryhill locks. Back alang the canal tae firhill road and a walk up the flagpole tae view what was my world. Firhill, the schools my street. Every memory causing a happy tear tae roll doon ma cheeks. In two weeks i will do it all again and never tire of it.
Andy i lived 139 Firhill road until it was dmolised in 1976 i remember Maryhill quite well. Before that i lived in Gairbraid place known as you know the Valley. I had a good friend Billy Robertson he went to nk around 1962 only to move i believe to south Shields with his family. I often wondered what happened to him his mother was a wonderful lady. Yes Andy there,s only one Maryhill and it,s a toss up who,s the best team in Maryhill the Jags or the Juniors. There,s no doubt the best cafe Jaconnelis bye thanks for your memories

I,m late in joining the forum. I lived 26 Gairbraid place having moved there from the Cowcaddens in 1955. The place is so so different since then although my close is still standing. When we moved the Laundry was there the air raid shelters in the backcourts plus the soldiers in the barracks so different from then . The railway station now a tesco all the old charactors long gonr and there was so many of them. those days i,m affraid are just memorries. I,m sure i know many of the people you knew.

Anyone remember havining to cross the canal locks to get to the Maryhill Rd for shopping and getting to scholl .
If you have been back for a visit recently has that section of Maryhill changed.
Tom i stayed in the valley from 1955. The soldiers were still there also the railway station (now tesco) I crossed the canal many times opposite the Kelvin Dock pub. The prefab houses were there at top of Burnhouse St, also public swiming baths when you only had a half hour session at a time and not allowed to go during school hours. I lived in 26 Gairbraid Place the close is still there it was the termius for the 33 and number 1 bus we also had the number 24 bus to Cadder. I have many happy memories of my time there. Sorry tom have to go now her masters voice is calling hopefully you will email back. Dougie Wilson
