I was born in bridgetons Kirkpatrick st.opposite the geggie there was a gents toilet in the middle of the street with a police box at the avenue st.end.Dougie Mckays pubs was at the same corner at Barrowfield st. Big jocky,Jimmy McKay,and mr.mcluckie ran a bookies in the first close in avenue st.away back in the 30s the wee geggie at that time was managed by mr.mctearwho was always smartly dressed and wore a bow tie,the place was kept spotless by a lovely wee woman called mrs Semple.We Sat on long benches in the stalls which we had great fun rocking back and forth until one collapsed and my leg was trapped underneath it,Iwas black and blue for ages afterwards.The balcony was just a couple of steps higher up from the stalls and that's where you sat if you were lucky enough and your mum had brought you along

I remember The Premier Cinema well.When I was 5 or 6 I remember collecting bottles & jars to take there as the price of admission to the Saturday matinee-Tom Mix, Lash Larue & Roy Rodgers were favourites. It was called the Geggy & the Fleapit but I always think of it being clean brushed and smelling of disinfectant. Later when we needed cash to go there we used to take our collected glassware to a bottle "bank"near Bernard St/ Heron St. I looked it up on Google street view & the building is still there but the tenements opposite have been demolished as have been the Tardis. There is now a full scale Police Station in their place.Progress?

Thank you mcfergus, whenever I tell people that we used to take Jamjars to the Western cinema to get in on a Saturday they either point blank tell me I am lying or I get the look. thank you once again

Saw Summer Holiday in the Scotia but the State and Odeon were our locals. My mum and dad worked in both and my Papa worked in the 3ps. Then to keep up with the family tradition I worked in the Gaumont box off ice for a wee while 1969/70 much to my Mum's disgust but it was the most fun job I have ever had rolleyes.gif laugh.gif Ah luved it!!

Bilbo.s. and Dave Grieve, you're definitely not on your own. Where I lived in Barrowfield just after the war it was part of the local economy

As I have said before, the Palaceum in Shettleston did not actually accept jamjars - we cashed them in at a grocer's shop.
