I`m another one born in Toonheid. I was born in 48 in Kyle Street and also started school at St. Mungo`s primary before moving to the country (Ruchazie ) in around 55 when they knocked Kyle Street down. I checked on Google maps to see if maybe they had put a wee plaque up wi ma name on it but maybe I wiz no that famous, it`s now a printers with a BMW showroom next door.If that showroom had been there when the houses were there then there would have been a lot of knocked off Beamers in Kyle Street lol.

just joined the board and happy to see somebody from Kyle st posting, we lived there from 51 to 58 at 35 and then 39 Kyle st, so before you moved away we probably played fitba together roon at wurdies. and took a shortcut to jacks mountain through the mile long tunnel under the cuddies park, wee bit scary when a train belchin smoke came in while you where still walking through.
also live in Joburg maybe we can get together sometime

Hi Betty2 my grandparents Mr & Mrs McIntyre lived at No16 Canning Place until 1960, when my Grandmother died and also have happy memories from when I visited them as a child of 8 in 1953 and then 14 in 1959. My mother Christina McKintyre lived there as a child. I now live in southern england as my father was english.

You must have been in my class at school then Andy, those names bring back loads of memories.
What about Joe Kelly, Andy Kirwan, Leo Dodds, Stanislaw Czajkowski and Miss Smith.

Here is an interesting coincidence....My great great great grandfather, James Carswell, Wright and Builder in Glasgow lived at no. 10 Canning Place in 1851 at the age of 80. I am guessing that he originally built the house. He lived there with a widowed daughter, an unmarried daughter and an unmarried son. I would be moswt interest to learn what happened to 10 Canning Place after the 1950s as I cannot seem to find it on the google maps. Can anyone help me.
