Hi Tom just noticed your post...I've been off GG for ages and have just started looking again.
Thanks very much for your reply and I have let my mum know. Her maiden name was Betty Clark...maybe your wife new her ??

Regards,
Iain Dunn

Hi Iain - like yourself, I have not been on GG for a while. But yes - both my wife and I knew your mum. I for much longer because as a kid your mum lived just round the corner from me. She lived in Ruchill Street and I lived in Maryhill Road at the corner of Ruchill street. Tell your Mum that a few years ago - through an article in the Evening Times - an old "dance partner" of hers contacted us out of the blue - Jamie Campbell who was a dance partner of your Mums - then later of my wife Ann. Jamie lives in London but has visited us every year for the past 12 years when he comes up to visit hid brother. Is your Dad Pat still around? Does your mum still live in Acre Road?
Regards Tommy

Tomias, yes Dalglish's was in in Burnbank gardens, number 18 I recall.
It was in the basement, and got very crowded indeed.
It was open from 6 til 10 on a Sunday.
Later on in years ( about 1964) just around the corner, go up Burbank terrace, turn right and just about parallel with Dalglish's on great western road there was another dance place.
Not jiving though, it was called Stewart's.
It had a local regular band called the Mustangs.
They were well above average.
Good memories going to those places?

Hi Mitchell (which I assume is a Ref. to the library) Did you frequent Dalglish's yourself? If so what years and what is your name?
Cheers Tommy
