Hi All,

I lived with my gran Bella Carrigan (Devine) in 13 Raglan St after my mum died in 1952 from then till 1962 my gran used to run a fruit shop in North Woodside for years.Then she retired and my aunt took over but my gran sold candy apples out of her window does anyone remember. The shop was in the family from early 1900s till my aunt gave it up in the 60s. I never got a photo of the street and would love to get one to use in my family tree. Also does anyone have any photo's of Phoenixpark Terrace where i lived with my mum till her death.

Thanks in advance Robert Carrigan

Hudggy, I remember going up to Raglan St. to buy candy apples from a woman who sold them from her window. She used to have them on a tray at the open window, and when there were none there, we would rap an the window only to be told they were all sold and when the next lot would be ready.

All the kids loved those candy apples.

We really missed all the wee shops when we moved to Barlanark in April 1953. Our mum had to go into town or Shettleston to do her shopping. I think when she went shopping in town she ended up back in the Cowcaddens. laugh.gif
It was a couple of years before we got some shops in Barlanark.

You should try the Mitchell Library, they may have some picture's of Raglan Street.

Hi Heather,

Glad you enjoyed the candy apples sometimes I helped make them or got the sticks ready also sold them when ma wee Maw as I called my gran was busy or out. Only it was not on a tray but a well greased marble counter.

Hi hudgy, dont know Phoenix park Terrace,...Though I did do a Google search and theres quite a few Gorbal's sites......

Type on your search engine......(I use Google it saves me typing the whole www. address).....Gorbals Live......loads of links come up....and there was one connected with Gorbalslive....

Gorbals live-Anecdotes......Heaps of people who live and are from leaving messages to find whoever.....Lots of reading in that one.....you may remember some names.

Hope this helps......Tori,..good luck.

Thats what I think anyway

I think you are out of luck with pictures on the virtual Mitchell site for Raglan Street most of which has been demolished.

However there are a couple of photographs of Phoenix Park.

Some posters do have their own collections of Maryhill Photos and may post one.

I've been unable to find any pictures of Raglan St. I hope that this one of Phoenix Park will help. I have a few others of this area, if you want to see them let me know.

I was at St.Joseph's School in North Woodside Rd. with a girl called Isa Galloway, and I remember her mum or some other relative worked in the fruit shop it was near the corner of Balmain St. and North Woodside Rd. We used ot go in to the shop quite a lot, it was a long time ago, we also had a friend Mary Mc Millan who stayed in Myrtle St. just of St. George's Rd.I think it is maybe knocked down now. Happy days!!!

Hi Rosie-K,

That girl you went to school with is my cousin Isa Galloway she has lived in canada since the early 60s. The shop at that time was being run by our granny whos mother first opened it around 1900.

I wonder when that picture of Phoenix Park swings was taken?

I don't remember a wall around where the fountain used to be.

I remember there used to be shelters down at the bottom where we used to make slides in the winter. If you did not jump off before you got to the bottom of the slide, you crashed into the shelter. wub.gif

Hi Robert,
Nancy the Cute chick fae the Cowcaddens here .
I put a posting on some other place asking if your Granny was Mrs Devine who sold Candy apples from her window and also that I knew Isa devine. Don't ask me where I put it in as I get mixed up when I come on here, But here I am again Yes I knew your Granny her close was near the Garcube Rd end of Raglan St and she sold her candy apples from her window which was at street level. Mrs Devine had the fruit shop just around the corner from Balnain St(where I lived) Isa's Mum run it when I knew them Isa lived up the close next to it on the top flat. Isa's Mum I think had remarried and she had twin Daughters thier pram used to sit at the top of Balnain St as she could see it from her window. also up this close was people called Banks and her Mother was very friendly with them. Isa was a Cathlolic and I was a wee proddy dog. but we went to St Josephs dancing,had a great time It was here i met Father Lyne my first encounter with him wasn't very good he wasn't going to let me in because I wasn't a Catholic so I said 'Well just give me my money back and I'll not be back at your old dancing'(was a wee bit cheeky when I was younger )Isa face was as red as a tomato anyway he relented and in I went we had great nights there.
I came to Canada in 75 and got a job in Woolworths one day about 15years ago this woman and girl came in the girl started to walk about but the woman said "I'll wait here for you" right next to the cash desk where I was working.Istarted to talk to the woman and she said she was from Glasgow and here it was mrs devine and the Girl was one of the twins (last time i saw them they were babies in thier pram.Gave her my phone.No to give to Isa but sorry to say she never called its a small world.Don't know what happened I was dissappointed maybe her Mother lost the No. and ofcourse I never thought in asking for hers and I didn't know her married name.
Well we are old Seniors now and this all happened in our hay days some folk don't like looking back maybe she was like that who knows but as I said its a small world look at me meeting you on this site eh!.
Nancy.

G'day Flam
You're right, it was Sammy Devine, (must be auldtimers disease) laugh.gif . Now you've got me wondering who Andy Devine was. I know there was a singer called Sidney Devine.

Andy Devine was an old actor in cowboy pictures. He used to be Roy Rogers' sidekick in the 50s.
