I lived in Garthamlock from around 1960 till 1967 when we emigrated to Australia. I am writing a story of my childhood for my children. I lived with mum, dad and 6 brothers and sisters. Went to primary and high school before emigrating. Anyone remember the Fergusons?

I remember Margaret Ferguson who was in my class at Craigend

Hi all, I am following up for my brother Danny Ferguson who sadly passed away a month after he wrote his blog above. We lived at 45 Tillycairn Road top level. I remember Billy White, Eddie Adams and Elizabeth Milligan. Not sure if anyone remembers those names. We went to Craigend Primary and I remember one teacher Mrs Walkingtosh. I am going to try and finish his book for him.

Hello there chinas. I stayed at 12 Porchester Street from 1960-1976, then the family emigrated tae Hamilton, South Lanarkshire, great place to grow up. Many fond memories it did get a wee bit mental in the latter years but hay-ho.

Hi what a wonderful site this is, I just stumbled across it while browsing for pics or stories about old Glasgow. I'm not sure how this works, should I reply or post in`new topic`? Anyway heres my two bobs worth.
My name is Matt Duffy, my family moved from The Gallowgate to a `brand new house` in Gartharmlock in the early fifties (I WAS ABOUT EIGHT OR NINE) before emigrating to Australia in Dec 1955.
Mum and Dad were Matt and Betty Duffy, with three sons, myself, Edward and John, and one sister Lisbeth.
We lived in Binns Rd. Not positive but possibly No 17. My brother John and I went to school nearby, cant remember the name. I do remember walking down the hill and catching the school bus.
Where we lived was in one of the houses at the top of Binns Rd, we were in what I remember as a `House` on the left - two stories - one `house` below one above. I might not be correct on this, thats just how I remember it,
Across the road were different style of houses, I just remember them as single story (bungalows?) with lovely little window panes.
At the top of the road were big fields where us kids used to jump the stone wall and `pick` potatoes while keeping an eye out for the farmer
I remember coming home from school each day and watching The Cisco Kid on TV. It was strange later when arriving in Queensland to find they didn't have TV yet.
My parents had the second TV in the area when it did arrive, my pals family had the first, his dad worked at the TV station. we watched the test pattern for months before programs went to air... haha.
If anyone has pictures of Binns rd in the fifties it would be wonderful to see them to compare with my memories which are foggy...... It was a long time ago.
I can be contacted on weematt@bigpond.com
ps I just remembered my dad had a big black wolesly car. I think he still worked in his cobblers shop in Parkhead Cross.

Hi, I lived in Coxton place from '74 until '90. Then we moved to Craigend. My surname was McConville. My brother is David. My granny and grandad McConville lived in Gartlock Road until early 80's then moved to Craigend. My cousins are the Snell's. Hello to anyone who remembers me or my family. I have really fond memories of gar-t. We where always outside playing. Loads of weans running about. We never always had a lot. But we never went without and where happy. And from what I can remember most of the families round about where the same.

My mother was a teacher in a primary school for a few years in Garthamlock in the mid sixties. She had 75 kids in the class, but she said there was no carry on or bad behaviour. Times tables were taught by rote and she said all the kids knew the times tables from an early age. The whole class would chant them out at the same time. Whilst she has fond memories, she does remember a lot of deprivation and poverty. She was known as Miss Holmes then.
