Hi Linda ...just wandering ur name sounds so familiar, did u attend St Thomas Aquinas? and did u know the " Doris's " .. Sadie, Caroline, Hannah and Jane they have brothers too...Robert, Frank, Philip and Alan or the " McEwans " .. Nancy cant remember the brothers name...would be good to find out as my bestest wee pal is Sadie Doris and I would luv to tell her....Thx biggrin.gif

I lived in 107 Langholm St and attended St Brendans school in the late 60's and then went to Thomas Aquinas in 69. I loved the place as there was always something going on especially with the railway right at the back and the swing park in the street. Can any one rememberr the tragic accident concerning a motor bike going on fire and a young girl by the name of Alison dying? I stiil think of that accident to this day it wasthe first time that death occured in my young life.

No, that's not me. I went to Yoker Primary school at the other end of the road. The only people I remember playing with were Ian Ogilvy and a Polish girl, and my friend at school was called Helen. Hope you find Sadie!

Hi All - I'm still on the theme of Langholm Street, I lived in number 94 from when I was 7 in 1955-1959 when I moved to a village in North Wales, near Caernarfon.

Like many of you we were quite poor in today's terms, but we didn't know it. I walked to school (St Brendans - where is that now?), used the tram to get to Whiteinch baths on my own at 7, used the ferry to get to Paisley Ice rink at 9, also on my own.

In the Summer we would go out in the morning and not return till tea time... and my mother would never ask where we had been or anything. We would wander around all over the place, having adventures. What freedom!

Just before I moved there was an incident where a youth was tied to a railway wagon and it was set on fire around bonfire night. He died. Was in all the papers.... does anyone remember that?

I remember the strictness of the school and church... I turned against the catholic religion when I was old enough to make my own decisions. The school was good though in terms of education.

I believe the houses are all knocked down now...

To the best of my knowledge Yoker Ferry Rd is directly across Dumbaton Rd from Kelso St and was were you got on or off the ferry when it was running. Mary

The comic singers know that but can't help themselves. The two ferries which were removed the crossing last year were known as the Renfrew Rose and the Yoker Swan. They ran between the terminal in Yoker Ferry Road and the terminal at Ferry Road in Renfrew

HI,
Iam doing my family tree and have come across an Agnes Mckinnon kennedy who married a William McNab and then a distant relative of mine Thomas Cassidy Mckay. Know children are William Mcnab and Alexander McKay and Thomas Cassidy Mckay. They lived in 107 Langholm street and I believe there were an Elizabeth and John McNab at 95 Langholm Street.
Elizabeth Kennedy is recorded as a hotel waitress.
Let me know if you have any details of these. Thomas Cassidy Mckay senior is my distant relation.
Best regards
Mary
