I too spent some time growing up in Shawlands, and yes I remember the Ice Rink very well, Leons cafe, Waverley cinema and going there on a Saturday morning to the "minors", Im sure it cost 6d to get in, also the Queens Park, and the Embassy and Elephant cinemas.

Born in Kinning Park - Paisley Road West - 1946. Actually I was born in the Southern General. Went to Lambhill St. School both Primary and Secondary. Worked in R.A. Peacock & Sons, Ibrox '61 - '64.
Got married in 1964, moved to England in 1967 - four of my children live in Suffolk, one in London and I moved to Saudi Arabia for work in 1991 - still here. Just bought a flat in Glasgow for my retirement in 2006. Looking forward to coming back to my roots!!

Born in Oakbank Hospital and from then on, "lived?" at 23 Airdrie St, Cowcaddens until 1961 when, my life was changed forever.

And to day, I still regret never having had the thrill of experiencing "High tea at La Scala" and, still live in hope that some day, somewhere around this ever shrinking globe, someone reading this note, will have had experienced the exicitment of munching little cakes and scones and sipping tea while sitting at a small round table with a tiny light on it and smugly, watching Qua Vadis on the movie screen. And, when remembering the muffled sound of a tea spoon politely stirring the two lumps of sugar in the tea in a bone china teacup, be willing to share their treasured moment with us.

Let Glasgow Flourish

See ya,

Peter Kelly

Born in the Southern General in 1949. Lived on Burghead Drive until I was four when I moved to Gauldry Avenue in Cardonald. Attended Mosspark Primary and Bellahouston Academy. I remember playing in the cemetry just behind Lourdes convent, also having so much fun running around in the big field. The field is all gone as years ago they built a college there. Also used to play down by the River Cart with ma big brother. Left Glasgow in 1972 for Andalucia where I taught in a bilingual school. Later, moved to Virginia, then back to Spain, then once again moved to the U.S. where I still reside.
