This is the first time I have thought about doing any related search on my old hometown Glasgow. I was born in Dobbies Lone and moved to Yoker when i was 2 years of age. I found this forum and to my surprise all these names started popping up especially from 208 Langholm street, where I lived from the age of 2 until 11 62/71 I remember your family, and the Gourlies who were our next door neighbours at the top of the close.
I must say I was upset reading your comments and our name not being mentioned (JOKE). My Father was James Armstrong Sadly passed away 15/05/13 Mum Eileen passed away 97, Sisters Heather, Sharon, and Jaquline, Jaquline still lives in Partick. I used to hang about with one of the Gourlies and James Findley fae doon the road.
It wis good hearing the old stories from yourself and others about playing doon at the railway tracks and the rats and the middens, loved it.
