  My Sherry relatives lived in 101/105/115 Dalness Street for decades from when it was known as Calton Street. They moved there around WW1 and some of my father's cousins were still living in that street by the late 1970s.

  Hi, was born in Altyre Street... 1958. Moved out to Sandyhills 1974. True what I read earlier, used to be a safe place to live and play as a kid.

  My father in law was born in Tollcross (Easterhill Place) in 1940 and his father had a building business at one point in Causewayside Street. Family name is Sievewright and I think they lived there until early 1950s when they moved to Shettleston.

  I have been reading about fights attempted murders and all kinds of crimes in Tollcross, I lived in Altyre Street from 1941 to 1961 it was a great place to live we would hand out in the summer till 11 p.m. in the evening and wait for out mothers to call us in. There was no crime , it seems the place has gone to wreck and ruin, why can anyone say, it make me so sad. I went to Wellshot School and had a great time was never scared to walk home from my friends in Sandyhills. I just wondered what had happened in this great area.
