Hi Keelie

I lived in Machrie Road, just off C'milk Drive.

Remember the wee shops well, my parents still live in Castlemilk in one of the new houses as their house was demolished.

I was in the same class as Andy Ashcroft and Carol Johnston at Braeside Primary. I also knew a Welsh and Waters, but can't recall their first names, gettin' auld laugh.gif

Cheers - Teeny

I was just going thru some of these posts.... and although theyre quite old now.... I know you guys are all still regulars here.

The Welshs in Machrie Drive were my lot.... I think it was Jimmy that lived there. His parents lived Camden St - but had died by '61. If anyone can remember a bit, let me know please as I'm coming up to Glasgow next week to do some research at the Mitchell. Relations are the Goffs, the Halligans and of course The Welsh's. Mostly from the Milk arrea. My nana Rose worked aat the Marlboro hotel? Glen Hotel and the icerink tea shop at crossmoor?(croftmoor?)
My grandad Bill worked at the Britannia? pub for a few pints after a hard day grafting at the shipyards:-)
Any excuse not to buy a pint eh??
Hope everybody is well, you certainly have fun.
Regards smile.gif

Amazing to hear of all the talk from you ladies about the shoaps at Machrie . I remember when the two main shops were in competition with each other. You had the Co-op and next to it Cochranes. They were like wee supermarkets. Saunders was a funny wee shop. Run by a wee Jewish couple they sold all sorts of stuff. It was as if the shop had no Theme. They had a boy who got onto Hughie Greens talent show in the sixties..........talk of the steamie seeng him on the telly. It was kind of unreal in those days to see someone you knew on the box.
The big newsagents at the end was always the best as it sold the quality sweets. Chemist at the other end with the obligatory weighing machine outside........which you only ever put a penny in if you were flush from a bung and then thought ..bugger I.could have bought two caramels with that.The chip shop opened later and it was a Godsend. Freezing winters meant chips to warm you up when you had the spare. My mum and her pal did the tatties during the day. I have lots more stories etc like you all.

Cheers Alex

hiya all. i remember coming to "the milk" from the gallowgate when i was about 5. we used to stay in the sarry heid buildings, where the wifies would watch the weans playing while sitting on sentry duty at each end of the back to keep anybody that didni belang there oot. watching all the drunks coming oot the sarry heid and going ower tae the barras fur the jigging. anyway we moved upto castlemilk and landed in downcraig road number 39. i went to netherton primary, old mrs kirkland the headie, the old witch. we used to cut through the woods at the side of st maggys to cross the carmunnock rd to get to school, if you were brave enough to not get caught by old skelly eyes. (the bogey man) i remember when they were building the "new houses" at ardencraig crescent, that was a big playground for the weans, and some adults. after downcraig we went to glenacre drive, then onto glenwood secondary, where they succeeded in making me even mare stupider, still it kept them happy. dogging it to go swimming helped take the edge off it but, in the front gate and oot the back gate and up the ressys fur a swim, get a number 14 bus ootside the school up tae the terminus cut through the farm to carmunnock and up the lane towards east kilbride and into the reserviors for s swim . great fun. another trip fur swimming was waterfoot, that was like the canterbury tales when we done that trip. andersons hole in busby was quite good annaw. we left the milk and moved to e.k., then i moved doon to london where ive been for 28 years.
