When I was born in 1936 at 26 Abercromby St.
Then we moved to 12 Craigmore St.
when I was 3 we moved to 18 Aitken St and we stayed there until 1960 then moved to the new town of Cumbernauld, called up there last year whilst touring Scotland and it was a shambles.
left there 1961 and came to New Zealand now retired and enjoying the good life.

I was born in Rottenroe hospital, and spent all my childhood till I was ten years of age in
Viewpark Ave in Dennistoun. My memories of the area are all very happy ones. Walked to alexandra park and listened to the band show, thought it was great. Rolled my painted egg down the hill by the flag pole every easter. Fished for little baggie minnies in the pond brought them home in a jam jar . Rode the little paddle boats every summer. went every Saturday morning to the Big Parade picture hall .Not a care in the world, those were the days.

Hi Isobel.

I remember doing all the things you listed, Ice skated on the pond played soccer on the asphalt pitches and I remember my Aunt /Uncle stayed in one of the prefab's which were built over the soccer ground.
Saturday matinee at the Parade also the other cinemas Vogue, Rex I've forgotten the name of the one behind the Parade cinema. I was also a member of the Gaumont Choir.
Great childhold memories.

I think the cinema near the Parade Cinema might have been the Dennistoun Picture House in Armadale Street. For a picture and some more information follow the link:

I agree, Betty2. I was sure there was a cinema called the Park but I can find no trace of it on the Scottish Cinema and Theatre database! Could it be that the Dennistoun Picture House quoted in my last post changed its name to the Park?

Hi Eastenders hope this finds you all hale and hearty.
Where was the "Bluebird cafe?
Any of you remember Joe Contes cafe on Cumbernauld Rd Just passed Kennyhill Square also the fancy american style cafe which was on the corner of Alexandra Parade & Alexandra Park St I think it was called "Buchan Arms"
My Mother used to work in Birrells sweet shop on the Parade
I used to go with a lassie from Carntnye called "Doreen Power"
The cinema I was thinking about was in Marne St
