Hi Sanny when did you leave Murray st? I got my first bike from Rattary's round about the late 50's cost all of GBP12 brand new, the first brand new anything I think I ever had. biggrin.gif
The Grafton was my mothers favourite hangout she must have gone there at least three times a month, No TV never mind daytime soapies then.

I stayed in townhead off and on during the fifties when I was at sea , staying with Cissy and Paddy Duffy at 5 ronald street along with their four children and three lads ,who like myself were products of st Mary's Smylum lanark and Castlemilk home during and after the war. Their names were Harry Gray ,John and mick feeley and me Shamie Murphy. We used to frequent Willie Miller's bar the old celtic goalie from the forties and eary fifties.Ithink the bar was in taylor street?We also used to use the Stirling castle bar. Mine host was a Rangers supporter but his young son was Celtic daft, so the guv used to ask us to take him to Celtic park, Oh and I was a closet Jags supporter.Harry was killed by the polis in 1958, I believe it was a very big case ,the polis handcuffed him to a lampost and bashed him with a truncheon, the reason for his death I believe , was Harry had a very thin skull. I left Glasgow in 1958 and never found out about the case when I visited ten years later.Iwonder if anybody remembers the case?

Small world I worked with Joe just after he came back from South Africa and just before I came here.
