Hey Lindamac, can you remember the name of the Street that Santis was on.!! After you pass The Avenue the Tram stop was outside the Church, Queenshill St ,I think ,then it was Curleys or Liptons Then I think Hendersons Butchers , a wet fish shop, and maybe a bank or pub. Then again I think Blenheim St, Santis was on that Street.It was like half a street with steps leading down to Barcable ST., & Atlas St., Mr. Santi handled the Till, I seem to remember 3 Sons and a daughter. One Son Valle or Valli was a cyclist as Iwas at the time. He rode for the .... Dam! Cant remember if it was the Glasgow Wheelers or a Saint something Club, I was with the Thistle Road Club, so I`d see him quite often. I did eat at the other shop next to Bells. Very Good. I`m not sure who was cooking as he was busy and I didn`t want to Bother him.After twenty odd years I couldn`t recognize Which bro., he was. Maybe you could straighten out my feeble memory unsure.gif

Hi All .I must admit I thought the fatal shooting of the old gentleman was in Ross's pub situated at the corner of Society Row and Possil Road, it just goes to show you how the brain disfunctions the older you get..Cheers Flim

Hi aaron king,

I used to drink in it must have been the beer that made me think it was McLauchlan's, I also used to be a bouncer in the Astoria so I used to sneek down at night for a we dram when it was quite in the hall.

Regards Hudggy
