Hi there I am originally from Queenslie.

It was a good estate until the late 80s.

Does anyone have any class photos of the classes I was in or the football team. Who was your favourite/worse teacher at Queenslie primary?

Regards
Walter

I feel I've done this before, but here goes. Born at 377 Bath St., Charing Cross, now a fly over, 73 years ago. Lived all over the world but mainly Australia, where I am now, in Byron Bay, NSW. Nice retirement in my second marriage, with a new baby coming along. Not bad for an old dog, eh?

I was educated at Glasgow Boys' High School which I hated but went on to become a teacher myself-ironic!

Anyway I'm ouddahere and going for a swim.


Hi Gordon. My younger brother attended the Boys High but he's a couple of years younger than you. I seem to recall him telling me the headmaster was David Lees. I'm 73 so congrats on your new baby, no retirement for you then!

Gordon is an old friend of mine, although we were not friends at school. BTW we had a Rector, not a Headmaster coz we wuz posh! David Lees was a horrible little martinet.

was brought up in Lyon Street and then moved to Easterhouse in 1962, went to St Clares then ST Leonards. Looking for anyone from Easterhouse but not had much response so far. My kids were brought up in Maryhill and Summerston, and went to John Paul Academy thumbup.gif

My family is Partick, I was born in Townhead, and I live near Drumchapel.

Doug1, you're from Inverness? I spent some time living up there as a wee thing.

You would probably see quite a difference now with it being all built up and having new housing estates all over the place, but still a nice place to live in and to bring kids up in. I dont live in Inverness itself but on the nearby Black Isle. Cheers

PS. Hope you are enjoying GG
