I grew up in Ravenscraig Drive, 110. When u came up the hill from the Priesthill shops we lived in what was called a T. Block looking on to Ravenscraig Terrace were Gerry the ice cream van used to sit. The people up my close were the Robins, the Mulhollands and the Kanes.
I was in the street last year and 110 consists of just one house now, but the hill with the bar running down it was still there intact. I used to play on those bars like a circus acrobat. The fields at the end of Ravenscraig were our playground and further on the bluebell woods near Carnwadric.
My first memory of Priesthill was when Mr Mulholland the aforementioned decorated his garden in red white and blue flowers for the coronation in 1953, hard to imagine street parties in Priesthill but it did happen, maybe others will remember it. Douglas's paper shop on the Priesthill road was were I bought my Bunty and Judy Comic every wee.

Where in Priesthill did you live? I knew most families because I worked in the Co-op at Priesthill Ave next to St Robert's and as there were only two shops the Co-op and Galbraiths most people wandered in eventually

Margaret Quin here marydee, I lived in Ravenscraig Drive and As a teenager I once worked in the co-op that you mentioned when Mr Kennedy was the manager, i remember his daughter sat at a high desk at the door on a Sat. taking the milk money. Do you remember your divi. number ours was 52936.

God Margaret you are taking me back You must remember Jessie Ramsay, Anne O'Brien and Nan Duffy at the Co-op... they were in with the bricks. I remember Gerry's ice cream van and the hill to the shops especially covered in ice in the winter. I remeber the Mulhollands but I can't place you I also remeber the Lennies and Jessie Henderson and daughter Lily from Ravenscraig Place. If you lived in the T block you must remeber wee Greta Russell who lived in the T block opposite on the other side of the Place. She got the name of being a lady of the night although I don't think she was and she was always nice to me. She had wee skinny legs black tights and white shoes and wore bright red lipstick and dangly earings.

Jimmyd-
I notice in your profile you were born 1938, that makes you about the same age as my ma.
I wonder if you knew her she was from Muirsheil Crescent her name was Isa Baldwin, sisters
name was Ealanor and she had 2 brothers Gus and Jack Baldwin. My da was Eddie McCallum
from Ravenscraig. People I remember as their friends were Tam McCrimmon, Margaret McCulloch
Betty Kelly and Wullie&Delia Smith. I noticed in one of your very early posts you mentioned an Isobel McInness, well my ma's name was Isobel (Isa), and her mothers(my granny's) name was McInness.
Just seemed a coincidence.
My own name is Eddie McCallum and i was born 226 Muirshiel Crescent and later moved to Ravenscraig Drive, no.33.
I lived in Priesthill from 1957 until we left in 1969 so I had 12 good years there. I hope some of those names ring a bell.

I remember Malkys van but it wis jist recently I heard about the goings on. When I asked my sister about it she remembered one of our neighbours always hanging around an getting free stuff and she used to go to his house a lot rolleyes.gif

Can't say I remember the big house but Wee Rosie put this picture in the Gallery and it would have been just down the road, Cleeves road is down at the end to the right. The Levern Water Hotel wis built there but I heard it has been or will be pulled down.

I lived in Corsford Drive from 1957 to 1972 and went to St Rabs and occassionally to Bellarmine.
Would like to hear from anyone from this area in particular and share memories of the burn, dams, Anyone remember the Mitchells, Todds, Langs, Loves from the drive, the McMahons from Muirshiel, the Burns from Ravenscraig and the McKeans from the inshot. Used to go to the auld brickies in cleeves road and have a wee bevvy in the Railway In, Cavendish and the Oak. Believe the only 1 left is the Nia Roo.
