Excellent idea Catherine, not only does it give an introduction to what the Bardau was into from music to all sorts - but it also helps the newer members to understand the sentiments which have been thus far expressed by longer board members.

Might also be an education for some, as she was very knowledeable eh?

Just for a walk down memory lane I went into thebard's profile and then went to all of the posts she had sent in - took me a long time to look through - brought back a lot of memories and a lot of laughs - I had forgotten how many jokes she had sent in - also got ticked off by her in a couple of posts big style - hang head in shame - but got praised in a couple so - hold head up again.

try it if you knew her - try it if you didn't - worth an hour of your time....

what a lady

Hi I've just discovered this site & am amazed to find so much on Shettleston. My 2 brothers & sister & I grew up near there in the 50s & 60s and went to St Paul's School. What a shame that's all gone now. Are there any other St Paul's past pupils out there?

My uncle was a dentist in Ardholm Street on the corner with Shettleston Rd. His name was Michael McGrane and my mum was his receptionist. I wonder if anyone out there had their teeth pulled or filled by him. I remember so many of the places you've all mentioned - the Odeon Cinema, Keogh & Savage, etc but does anyone remember The State Cafe , the State Cinema. The State and the Odeon were our regular Saturday haunts with a ice cream at the Cafe afterwards. Great times!

I was born in Shettlesaton Road too at 1090, just opposite where The Snooker Hall was. I went to Eastbank - just beside where you lived (we called that building Honeymoon Terrace because when it was first built it was mostly newly weds who got the houses.

Visit Our Website

I left school in 1947. Later moved to Greenfield, Dennistoun, Easterhouse, Barlanark, Possil and finally Springboig where I still live. I was almost in Oz in the early 60s but my wife took cold feet at the last moment. Didn't want to leave her Mum and Dad and family. I had fixed up a job, house and transport but had to cancel it all. Have cousins over there.

My Email address is tonyrockajock@btinternet.com

Don't know the old east end at all but anytime I am over at that side of town I am always amazed at the regeneration that has gone on over the last few years especially around the Forge.Does anyone know where in the Tollcross area Stewarts and Lloyds was based, believe it was a large foundry that was still operational back in the sixties and seventies.
Stewarts and Lloyds used to be parallel to Carmyle Ave,. and the main entrance was on Tollcross RD Just west of Carmyle Av and Killin St intersection

shettleston is a great place to live. if any murders or something seriose it happen in shettleston even know it happen in tollcross or carmly or anywhere in the east end shettleston get the blame for it it was because shettleston got vote the poor place to live .i love to know who came up with that its not fair to blame shettlesto everytime something happen.it annoy me big time that we been put down to everything they should get they facts right newspaper before they print it. amurder happen in easthill st in tollcross but same as usal the said it happen in shettleston. it happen all the time.this is facts it might be becuase the police station is in shettleston. our mp should help us frank mac,vervary should do something about it. just blame shettlesto all the time.

Hi Sandra

Just wondering if you are the Sandra Milne I used to know as a young tot playing shops and houses out the back. I lived in 836 Shettleston Road. If so, I still feel bad about throwing the toy gun at you. It's been on my conscious ever since. I have been in contact with Bill Stewart and he said you were in Tasmania if you're the same person. I'm Ken Slaven.

Hi, Ken. Millymouse is indeed Sandra. Try sending her a PM on here, although she doesn't seem to be on here much. I have emailed her with your GG address on here, as I don't think it is protocol to give you her email address without her say-so. smile.gif

BTW I recognised her right away, after 60 years - something about the eyes !

Hi Bill

Yes I sent a message today so hopefully she will reply. I probably spent more time with her than anyone else funnily enough and as you say I'm sure I will recognise her or at least believe that I have.

Ken
