Been through that blythswood door many, many times. Whoever took that picture must have been standing close to the polis box on raeberry st. Interesting how many polis boxes they had around then.
Also cocozza's cafe was just across the street to the left of the ' blythsie'.

Great pics. thanks again for letting us "see" our memories.

Here's a photo of St. George's Rd. school requested by Monty in Australia. I'll add the other one he asked for later.
The museum in Scotland St. has a great selection of snaps of the interior of St. George's. I had no idea it was so good - needless to say, it was demolished!

I know this is an old thread, but I found it via google! My Gt, Gt grandfather lived in Springbank Street circa 1900 and I was wondering if anyone had any information regarding the house and maybe even a picture? I am building my family tree and any info would be so much appreciated.

Many Thanks

Thanks, Flim - I remember this block of houses well. The one in the photo is at the corner of Hinshaw and Maltbarns Street. Over to the right, there are some newer brick buildings. This is where the tenement was that I grew up in. There was a bit of spare ground between the flats in the photo and our tenement (No.43 Hinshaw Street). The school (Springbank) is still there but I believe it is a community centre of some sort. Appreciate your interest.

Hi my dad was born in 63 Hinshaw Street in 1930 his name was William Mclaren he had a brother James Mclaren his mother was Jessie and his dad Alexander known as Alec or Alex.
