I remember that putting green well, it is right in front of Deerpark Gardens in Tollcross Road. My grandparents lived there and my mum was brought up there so I recognised the picture instantly. I lived further up the road in the next block of tenements which were called Rock Dove. It was the best bit of Tollcross to live in at the time - I think. When it snowed we used to play in that area with sledges too. Thanks for posting it.

I was born in 18 Easterhill Place Tollcross in 1948. It was my grandparents house we lived with them until 1953 when we moved to our own house in Carntyne. My grandparents were Robert (Bob) and Mary Grant. I briefly went to Wellshot Road school before transferring to Carntyne school.Also there was my brother Sandy and sister Elizabeth.

I have been reading about fights attempted murders and all kinds of crimes in Tollcross, I lived in Altyre Street from 1941 to 1961 it was a great place to live we would hand out in the summer till 11 p.m. in the evening and wait for out mothers to call us in. There was no crime , it seems the place has gone to wreck and ruin, why can anyone say, it make me so sad. I went to Wellshot School and had a great time was never scared to walk home from my friends in Sandyhills. I just wondered what had happened in this great area.

My father in law was born in Tollcross (Easterhill Place) in 1940 and his father had a building business at one point in Causewayside Street. Family name is Sievewright and I think they lived there until early 1950s when they moved to Shettleston.

Hi, was born in Altyre Street... 1958. Moved out to Sandyhills 1974. True what I read earlier, used to be a safe place to live and play as a kid.

Where exactly was Battleburn Street/Road? My Grandfather's sister Alice McLaughlin lived there way back in the 1930s.
