Hi. I'm wondering if anyone has heard of the model lodging house in muse lane?. On my Great Gran x3 death certificate it lists her death at 31 Muse Lane, Glasgow dated 1872. Was this part of the the model lodging house or would it have been a their own house?. I know when her son died in 1930 his death was listed at barn-hill but usual residence was edgefauld road. After researching this address it also appears to be a lodging house owned by 'Rosie's Homes".

Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks
Claire.

Hi Claire. There was a womens model house in Muse lane but not sure which number it was. My paternal granny was born at 48 Muse Lane which was a house. There are a few photos of the lodging house on the Virtual Mitchell website. Mary

Never read the whole thread but i stayed in Hope House on Clyde St a number of years back. It was run by the Sally Army. Believe it's now closed.

Was in most of the council run hostels, some better than others.

Belgrove Hotel is still there but it's a rough house.

There's very little in the way of accommodation for homeless men now in Glasgow.

Believe the term "Model" was a 19th Century term.

There was a model house in Holme Street off Argyle Strret i don,t know what it was called. I was an apprentice plumber at the time and was shocked to see the men living in what was in effect a cage. There was a bed with a chair and nothing else. There was also a long sink with no hot water for the men to wash themselves. It was quite an eyeopener for a 15 year old.
The sad part was many of those men had returned from the war to nothing. There was also a model house next to Woodside baths in the Cowcaddens. Some of these men even went round the backcourts singing songs in the hope someone would throw them pennies to feed themselves. Quite sad that,s the part of Glasgow i remember. I was the lucky one i had a single end with no hot water and a outside toilet which was shared with 3 other families across the road from Partick Thistle football ground.
