Hi Kayleigh, I can remember that incident in Kay St, I was about 11 or 12 at the time, hey maybe not as the memory likes to be selective these days, must ask the wee mammy. Where did you go to the brownies, I went to the brownies in the Salvation Army halls in Edgefauld Rd I think it was, the street down at the bottom of Reidhouse St and at the bottom of Northcroft Rd. If the memory is in working order tonight I think there was a derelict movie house somewhere around there. When I was about 7 (I think) there was a big accident there that involved a big truck.
Well I remember the swings in Springburn Rd, do you remember the ones off Edgefauld Rd, we called them the wee swings. Can't remember the streets name. My sister had a bad accident there and we were never allowed to go back.

Great to be back - love the new look. I remember Woodside baths and Springburn (lived in Possil between the two). My memories of Woodside was in the Summer it was great to go there. If your time was up you could grab your clothes and run outside and join the queue to pay in again. Great times. Do you remember the old woman who lived low down in one of the streets nearby selling toffee apples and table out of her windae? Springburn baths was great for the fritters in the roll fae the chippie.

I remember a woman who used to sell toffee apples out of her kitchen window. I think she lived in either Raglan St. or Lyon St. both off the Garscube road, you could cut through there on to North Woodside Road down where the Woodside Bath were.
The toffee apples were great. We used to knock on her window to ask when they would be ready. They were fresh made everyday. yummy.

Grew up in Wellfield St. Went to Kay st Baths at least once a week Swimming and or a bath. Went there with the school too (Albert ) Went tae the Steamie wae mah Mammy tae help her carry the Washing. For a trip on the Red car to Pollockshaws was nearly an all day adventure. Townhead Baths... My kitchen window looked in to it from Morrin Square. After I was Married.My daughters had it a bit easier,weatherwise They done all their swimming in So.,California. I have great memories of Springburn. That Vibrant Springburn no longer exists. Sad in so many ways.

I distinctly remember and have fond memories of the public baths in Kay St.
I was a member of the St Rollox swimming club that used the baths every Monday evening from 9pm to 10pm (if memory serves me right), along with school friends who were also members.
On your way home, the first stop would be the "chippie" in Kay St for the "must have" bag of chips and a couple of onions.
Albert school also used the baths for a period of time.
This all happened in the late fifties and early sixties.

There is mention of John Carrick St on oldspringburn.wetpaint.com it's about the earlier history when Springburn was a vibrant area, Good Luck.
