HI Rosie smile.gif

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.

I lived in 7 Langholm Street in the early 60's till about 1967. I remember my mum hated it, she thought it was too rough. I remember the freedom, we used to get the bus to school by ourselves, we were only 6! We used to go out to play and not come home for hours, and my mum had no idea where we were. I have my old school photo, some of the children look very poor, tatty shoes and shabby clothes but I can't remember ever noticing it. In the photo I remember Ian, Joe, Nancy and Helen. I went back to find it a few years back and had a bit of trouble because of the name change but when I did get there the whole of the street had been knocked down apart from the bit at the top I'd lived in so I was able to take some photographs. We left to move to Dunblane, what a difference. The children at my new school used to comment on my broad glasgow accent. I often wonder if my life would have been any different if I'd stayed in Langholm street. I only have happy memories of the place.

Just found this thread.
I was born in 91 Langholm Street. Lived with our nanny and granda.
There were LOADS of us living there! The name was Reynolds. I have 3 brothers and 2 sisters.
Aunties and uncles were still living in the house too. We grew up with them. To many to mention.
If anyone knew the Reynolds family, you would know they were quite a big family yes.gif
