Hi my mum lived in Edington Street which I understand was a play street in Cowcaddens. She lived in the tenements there. Does anyone have any photos of that street ?

I lived at 53 Wemyss Street with my gran Helen Aitken until she died 1947 then went to live in Stow Street apparently it was an empty building and our neighbours and us were "squatters". I remember going to the garage at the top of the street for paraffin for our lamp. There was an arcade with shops at the top of the streets that took you through to Renfrew Street I think and the back end of Marks and Spencers.

Charlotte, Gracie Fanning did not go to St. Josephs she was not Catholic, she went to a school at the top of Dobbies Loan.
I remember when we had a Holy Day of Obligation, some of us would walk Gracie and Gina McMurdie back to school after dinner time.

I have a vague memory of Costello's living in our close in Sawfield Place and remember the names she mentioned.

My family were the Currans and we lived on the 1st floor right above the close and next door to the Sweeny's

Margie Gizzies was on the Garscube Road, just around the corner from Burnside Street. Spent many happy times in there .

Hello all from Cowcaddens,
We lived at Burnside Buildings, surrounded by family. they attended St Josephs' school. My mother Nan Masterson & her friend Susan worked in Gizzis cafe in the 1950's, Mum often spoke very fondly of Mrs Gizzi & how popular the Ice cream was. She would have loved this site & all the memories, Mum married my Dad Jack Munro, he worked at Glasgow Locarno, & her friend Susan married Billy Mc Leish, he later became the Manager of the Locarno

I am looking to locate Ventre family members that might still live in the Glasgow area. I saw a post from 2010 talking about Laurie Ventre.

Hello - This is my first post on this forum that I've been really enjoying. My dad was born in 1907 in Hopehill Road, the son of Agnes Soutar. Agnes married John Paterson in 1910 and my dad became Peter Soutar Paterson. He emigrated to Canada in 1924 on the "Carmania". At that time, his family lived in 460 Garscube Road. I have been trying to determine exactly where that was located. I'm assuming it was close to the "Round Toll" but can't seem to figure out just where. It was on the side of Oakbank Street and, judging by the post of Danny Harris, pretty close to there. Any help would be appreciated. This website has brought me closer to the family I never knew.



I was just browsing through this topic, when I came across Robert Paterson's post. I may have mentioned in another subsequent post, that Robert and I met up. He came over to Scotland, and I was able to take him to the exact spot he was looking for.

We spent a most enjoyable day together, including a visit Loch Lomond. If I have already mentioned this elsewhere on the website, apologies to all.

That is the beauty of this web site Danny, the "head" side of the coin as it were. I became friends with a member here who lives in Michigan. Her father was a prisoner of war with the Italians and as it looked like the game was nearly over they let their POWs go rather than get caught with them, The escapees managed to get into Switzerland and some were looked after in different areas by locals and one or two were hidden in a convent of sorts.
I went down into the area where our friend's father was looked after but after a long search and a visit to the local Town Hall and grave yards etc.. I was drawing one blank after an other ... then I managed to find out about a really old, but ill, priest and came sooo close to meeting up with him but that also fell through.
An exciting day involving my Mercedes overhearing on the Swiss motorway and Swiss Police first being helpful then telling me that if I was still there when they came back tongue.gif ,,,
.. and still overheating on all the country roads on the way backhome to Germany and my passenger and helper not hving a good time of it at all (me having to drive rather risky to keep from stalling) but she survived the trip ... and so did my lady helper (Mary's best mate) biggrin.gif

Our member was ever so grateful for my attempts which; although bearing no fruit to help her with more of her dad's history, still at least produced some pictures of the area where he'd been and the "Nunnery", which was by this time a young ladies hostel, but nothing of the Swiss family who helped him.

But that is the essence of GG ... helping each other where we can. wink.gif

The member is still a good friend who sends me pictures of her grandchildren when she has them all together with their gran. thumbup.gif


--------------------
Wait a minute ... I've got my eye on a burd.

... Some try to tell me thoughts they cannot defend ...
