Came accross this site while looking for old pictures of Our Lady and st Margaret's school in Admiral street, especially the Huts where I went, and my children.
Four generations of my family came from kinking park, or Plantation as it was sometimes called.
I lived in 45 Eaglesam st, my father owned a shop calked Woodcraft at 76 Paisley road w, we moved to Pollok in the 50s, and I moved back to kinning park when I got married lived at 92 and 94 McLellan street, this was apparently the longest street without a break, and was spelt differently at both ends.
One end was spelt McLellan st the other Maclellan st.
Tried to find a picture of my Dads shop but so far can't find any, it was next to Bells the cleaners and Kirkaldy linoleum market, what a busy place it was then.

Alex MacPhee,
You wrote long ago, but in researching my family I cannot believe the coincidence.
My Grandfathers family live at 19 Blackburn Street in Govan since the late 1800's to the mid 40's.
My great grandmother was Sarah Young. My grandfather was Mungo McAllister. I believe there was a Hettie, Katie, Sadie, Georgie, Jimmy, Archie and Alec. My grandfather moved to Canada with my mom and aunt and Nana in the mid 50's and we have lost a large majority of oor tree. DO you happen to have a pic of 19 Blackburn.
If anyone else know the family, we are looking to piece a few things together,

Hi Beth, it's probably a long shot that you are still actively reading this post but I hope you are as it would appear that I might(?) be a distant relative of yours! I believe that Mungo McAllister was my great uncle. My grandfather was Alexander McAllister, whose father was also named Alexander and mother's name was Harriet (nee Neilson) he had the following siblings (with ages shown from 1891 census); Jane (15), Mary (13), Archibald (11), Thomas (9), Mungo (7), Daniel (5), Alexander (3) & James (1). At one time address was 151 Blackburn Street, Govan. I have further information if you do happen to read this and wish to contact me. Kind Regards Allan.
