Howzit Gaun! I lived in Collina St from 1947 till about 1956. I lived in a prefab at 8 Collina St. Now long gone. I went to Gairbraid School, also now gone. Dont want to be boring but I wrote a wee story of my childhood there and its on www.ourglasgowstory. along with lots of other ordinary folks stories. I and my brothers used to be 'babysitted' by the Donnelly sisters, Anna and Mary. They lived just across the road. I remember Jack the grocers shop round the corner in Burnhouse St with very fond memories. Sibbalds the fruit shop in Gairbraid Ave. Happy days!

Hi Mags. I remember the chip shop well. Thats where I acquired my taste for pie suppers! I seem to remember a shop on the same side as the chippie, on the corner of Gairbraid Ave and Burnhouse St. Was it no a wee Cochranes? I remember the shop well 'cos a got a skelpt bum from my ma. She sent me down for a bag of broken biscuits, on the way home I got delved into the bag. My ma didn't believe me when I said that was all I got. So I got a skelpt bum and put to bed!MyAunt Mary lived in Dick St , way down Maryhill Rd. She used to shove her pram to the steamie. She often came round to the prefab and had a cup of tea with my ma before walking home. Hope you'll read my wee story on the other site.

Hi,

I lived on Kelvindale Road - right beside Gairbraid primary school. What school did your husband attend?
