hi Phil,

I grew up in 14 Phoenix Park Terrace I remember the name Divers but cannot remember you even though you are a year younger than me. You stayed up the same close as Duncan McPhee they stayed on the top floor. Your close was the second last before the Lecky ( Electricity Board ) how long did you stay in the terrace I was there into the late 1950s my mother died in 1952 then we moved back and forth between my grans in Raglan St and the Terrace depending if my old man was on or off the sauce he took mums death very hard.


Regards Hudggy

I lived in Sawfield Place just off the Garscube Road.
One of my older brothers had a friend with the surname Divers, but I can't recall his Christian name.

Hi Phil, I stayed at 26 Phoenix park terrace and remember the docherty's at 38. I remember Phil best ( your brother?) but don't remember the names of the rest of the family except Doc ( as my father called him), He played the dulcimer and was a big hit at the end of the war when he played to the people dancing in the street and on top of the air raid shelters. I believe the Moonies and the kelly's stayed in the close 38.
Phil Divers stayed in the close at 32 opposit the McInally's, Jim McInally was a pal of mine.

I believe robert Carrigan stayed in the close at no 14 opposite the wallaces, Harry Wallace must have been off about the same age. Roberts mother used to sing with the back window raised so that the baby in the pram just outside the window could hear and lay there quite happy or sleeping, which wasnt surprising as she was good singer.

I do have some photo's of the terrace and the shops in dobbies loan and will post them when/if I can find them.

Hi leckie,

The kids in Phoenix Park Terrace are outside number 14 where I lived. Dan I cannot remember you but feel that I should you stayed at 26 how many up did you live. My uncle Sammy used to stay 32 but that was in the in the 50s. Are you older than me or did we ever hang about the terrace as kids.

Hi Hudggy,
Thanks for your reply , I stayed in the single end, three up at No 26 with my parents and brother Billy and am 74 years young at present and now stay in Chryston, You would have been only about Four when your parents bought you a big furry grey rabbit, and since I had a white rabbit I agreed to keep them together in a hutch in the back court (Too smelly and no space in the house). Unfortunately they did not survive a really bad winter, The rabbits, your mother singing and your dad's accident are the main reasons I remember you. I doubt if you will recall having the rabbit?.
Thompsons shop was taken over by Bill Gooding in the early fifties.
Did your uncle sammy have any family?, If so I should remember them.I remember the Munro and Headridge,s staying in the close at No32.

KEEP WELL! Dan Harris

Hi leckie,

I have little or no recollection of the rabbit except for it being mentioned by my Dad. I believe Mr Hedrige stay in the close at 20 through the wall from us. His son Colin joined the Royal Navy and fell of his ship in port and was crushed to death. I remember Colin as he and his dad gave me my greatest pet I ever had Micky my dog that dragged me from our close along the snow to the airaid shelter in the street by my scarf with my mum and dad laughing at me from our window. The year the rabbit died would have been 1947 that winter sticks out in my mind remember sledging down Ann St on the slede my dad made in the shipyard for me. Also there were Munros on the 2nd floor of our close 14 Hugh, John, Peggy and Ann may have been another brother.
Keep well Hudggy Robert

Hi all just found this site... the picture of the terrace... I'm sure shows our car ( a Blue Ford Consul) out side No 32. My name (as was my dad: he drove for John Barrie the hauliers and the vans were often parked outside No 32) is Andy Allan (mum Helen: her mum (Jeanie Rowley) stayed in Crossburn St just down from Stans shop use dto work part time in teh shop at the end of the street), I stayed from birth '57 to '69 when we moved to Knightswood, at the time (we were top right) the Conroys were next door, my dads mum Alice Ure lived one down and her brother Andrew Ure (electrician in the yards until an industrial accident) stayed in the single end one down. We mostly hung around with Alan and Victor Waltham (mun and dad being Victor and Shiela: couple of closes nearer the Lecky) and the Buchanans who stayed at the Ann St end of the terrace, my Aunt Betty (Tighe) stayed opposite us.
Feels kind of odd but nice to be involved...

Andy

Hi all, my name is Andy Allan (same as my dad, I was born in '57 and we moved in '67 just before it was demolished, my mum Helen worked part time in teh wee shop for a while) he drove for John Barries and the van was often in the street outside No 32; we were top right, the Conroys were opposite, my Gran Alice Ure stayed below and her brother Andrew Ure was in the single end, I'm sure the pic of the terrace shows our old Ford Consul..(light blue for those watching in black and white). I was pally with the Walthams (parents Shiela and Victor: a couple of closes nearer the leckie than us) and the Buchanans (rounded gable end at Ann street). unfortunately I've no pix of the street but would love to see any more. What a great find this has been.
