Can anyone tell me where this was? My Scott ancestors lived at no 24 in 1903. I cannot find any old maps showing its location. Grateful for any info.

I don't think there was a Ronald Street in Dennistoun.

There was, however, a Ronald Street in Townhead and Christine can find it on this map of Glasgow [1894].

Dear all,

I'm new here, so please be gentle!

I have relations that also lived at 24 Ronald Street, in 1922 definitely. I'm awaiting the release of the 1911 census in March/April to hopefully tell me more.

It's the only Ronald Street in Glasgow that I can locate, that existed then and is on this map (St. Rollox c.1913 ) near Parliamentary Road (under the LL of St. Rollox). I understand that it's either classed as St. Rollox or Dennistoun (were there boundary/district changes?)

Christine Dyos, I'd be interested in exchanging info, as maybe we have the same relations?! (I know it's a while between 1903-22!)

Yours
Eimear

Ronald St was deffo in Toonhied, I lived just up road from it. prolly on the top part of it in the new toonhied flats.

Ronald St was cobbled! and was bordered by Parson St, Taylor St and St. James Rd, last tenement on it was knocked doon about summer 1970.

I also have a distant relative, Miss Elizabeth Russell, living at 19 Ronald Street in February 1909. Any help with location etc would be a great help as its difficult to search the census by address when you are in NZ!!

Hi *Henry Lewis*,

I too have family who lived at 19 Ronald Street, St Rollox, Glasgow, in 1901.

The following link may assist you ~

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parliamentary_Road

It gives a brief history and a small map giving location.

Hope this helps, all the best,

John

I knew Ronald Street well... Spent many a day there in the late 50's early 60's ...... My father used to own the bakery there... Tait's Bakery.....His name was Samuel Tait , but most knew him as "wee sammy" My mother used to serve in the shop... her name was Jean .... The bakery was right next door to the pub mentioned in other post re Undertake...Happy Days..

Greetings from Newfoundland. I just came across this thread while looking for Ronald street. I knew the area had been destroyed much like Springburn. However what was most interesting was the address "24 Ronald street" My father's best friend Joseph Ewing lived there in the 1940s---also possibly earlier. Joseph was a marine engineer and served on several tankers. Unfortunately he died in 1942 when his ship the Empire Gem was sunk by a UBoat off the coast of US. Tragically his father had died in 1918 due to the effects of the Spanish Flu.

Mary his wife remarried in 1928 to Robert Forrest. My dad's friend had two younger brothers Henry (Harry) and Sam who would likely have lived on Ronald street around the same time.

I would really like to hear from anyone who knew them.

Regards
Garth

Hi well there is a walk down memory lane - wee Sammy Tait. The best hot pie and peas in the land!!! The smells in the backcourt when Sammy's back door or window were open were sheer brilliant!
He shared our outside loo up the stair at 48 Ronald Street. We were the Sweeney's! Apologize to your brother young Sammy can always mind opening up the outside door to the loo which he forgot to lock. Getting such a fright and thinking I was in big trouble. I ran off forgetting to close the door again in my shocked state. Poor young Sammy, ages with myself was yelling for his dad! So sorry! The pub Alex's bar, before that Grant's was where my daddy frequented. Big John Sweeney - there were 5 in our family - Anne, my late dear brother John, Jean, David and myself. Ronald Street was Townhead. Glasgow C4 now know as G4. The pub was on the corner of Ronald Street and St James Road. We live above it. Across the street was City Public Secondary School and down a bit was St. David's Primary School. Across from us was old Mr. Smith's newsagent. Up just past the pen was Reid's newsagent 36 or 34 Ronald Street and Davy's Dairy I think it was called, a bit further than that. x

I was born in the house at 48 Ronald Street on June 1954, remember most of it well and am sure there was a Penn just along from us where the rag and bone man had his place, also remember that Rattery's bike shop was round the corner, think it was on McAslin Street or Parson Street.
