Looks like most catholic children went to mass in morning and Sally- Ann in the afternoon.

My brothers Richard, Ronnie and I went to the one in Robson Street Govanhill.
Loved singing, My cups full and running over. There was a day you also got a bun for attending, we were all their for the bun.(That was a treat for us) smile.gif

your very welcome margie.
like i say, it would be fun if you could expand this thread a bit - I'm pretty sure it would be of interest to the majority of members.

growing up in Partick we would spend may a Sunday afternoon at the bandstand listening to the Sally Anne Band and then go onto the putting green and also the glasgow art galleries as it was called locally,
And today I have nothing but praise for this truly christian organization
and long may it prosper. smile.gif

I have fond memories of the Salvation Army. You often saw them in Govan standing in a circle and singing hymns and playing music.

A good site for old and new pictures of Glasgow is Urban Glasgow click on the link below.

My mum' youngest sister was in the Salvation Army. I don't know where her unit was based but she lived in Woodside.
She used to come to visit us with her uniform on and I loved trying on her bonnet with the red ribbon round it tied in a big bow.
We used to go and see her on a Sunday afternoon playing and singing with a group who stood in a circle in whatever street they picked.

I also remember the days when it came near to Christmas, the Salvation Army went round the streets singing Carols. Then they came round the doors with their collection tins and as we enjoyed the Carol singing we always had some money ready for the collection.

When we were young our insurance company was Royal Liver and the insurance man who came every Friday was a Salvation Army man called Mr.Crawford who was loved by all of us kids. He did a funny thing with a hanky like a mouse running up his arm and he had the youngest ones in fits of laghter with banging his doze on the nore when he was leaving.

Thanx Boydy. The Salvation Army does great work and at Christmas time when I see them in Sauchiehall Street I always give a wee donation. I always loved the song "There is a green hill far away" always sung at Eastertime first song I learned at Sunday School, reminds me of going to Maryhill Park and rolling our Easter Eggs.

when i was homeless in Manchester a few years back.
I met captain and Mrs Middleton who used to go there.
The salvation army has been there for me thought my life, and i used to love going to that hall.
I think it is still being used.
