Hello,

I'm hoping someone maybe able to help me track down class pictures from Ruckhill Primary school in Ruckhill Glasgow between 1971 - 1978. My primary 6 & 7 teachers name was Miss Bruce. Who went onto marry the local Church Minister.

I'm an old pupil and would dearly love to see what I looked like back then. I don't have any pictures and neither do any of my family members. So if anyone could help, you would be making this the best Christmas ever?

Thanks in advance

Elizabeth

We lived at 689 Bilsland Drive. Was originally my granny's house (Johnston). Personally I remember Mrs Pym who was blind, the Watsons and I think the McGoverns. Also Mrs. Ashley who lived in either Arnold or Hazlitt Street. We left when I was 10 so memory is a bit faded! Also remember Stevie who used to scare all us kids. The alarm would go out that Stevie was on the way and we would hop it quick sharp!

Do you know anyone named 'Brian' aged about 67/68? Only small about 5' 5", mid brown hair. The Hogmany night started in Curlers Bar and went on to a party at Knightswood high flats with some Engineering friends including Ronnie Gordon from Drumchapel. In October 1966 after hearing of my birth, Brian went to Drumchapel to my birth mums door to discover I had been adopted. This is my last chance to try and find him. Contact me by email here or midgetgem1966@hotmail.com

Saw a mention of Cromer street in Ruchill which brought back memories of my first crush in the mid 50's. His name was Bobby Gritton and he lived in that street. One of his friends was John Rogan. Anyone know anything about Bobby and how life treated him?

My mum was brought up on Emerson Street. Her maiden name was Rose Gallacher and she had 3 brothers, Harry, John, James and 4 sister's Katy, Annie, Ellen and Mary. Her mum was Maggie and her dad John. They're neighbour and her mum's friend was Maggie Mclintock. Just wondering if anyone remembers them?

I grew up in Ruchill same time as your mum.I was a bit younger and stayed a few closes down Emerson street.
I knew James better as we used to play football on the square as we called it.I was sad when I heard he had passed away.
Don,t know if your mum is still alive but some of the neighbours that stayed around there at the time were the McLintocks Mc Nulty,s
Proudfoots,devines,Reilly,s.I am 70 now but had a fantastic time growing up there,and can still remember all the people.I could fill the page.

The school was St Bernadettes and I started school there as well as my two brothers Jim and Tham McKeown. The headmistress was Mrs Bradley.
We lived at 201 Bilsland Drive and then moved to 78 Whitworth Street next to the swing park. Does anyone remember the shops across from the park? Staffords (two old sisters owned it). We always bought from the "penny tray" frozen jubillees etc ... Leos chippy.... The dairy where "wee Agnes" worked and the chemist and post office and a baby wear shop. I know a few names mentioned on here and it brngs back memories.
