It's a wee bit higher up than the science class Joop, unless they were flying kites to interact with electrical charges in the form of lightning. Knowing kids of that era, that was a distinct possiblity.

Any idea what the name of the church was (North Kelvinside, perhaps) and the name of the pub on the corner, just opposite Oban Drive and the Church?

Rabbie another good picture.Showing what was called the NK "Old Building" and the junction where Oban Drive and Fergus Drive meet.In the pic there is a view of the HLI and on the other corner I dont think it was a pub although Ill stand corrected and maybe someone can enlighten us.The premises you are on about was a Fish and Chip shop as far as I recall.
Nice to see the lady in curlers and her bairn made it to the top of the avenue.
Im interested in when it was taken as I dont see the wooden buildings which served as a gym.They were on the side of the school and ran parallel to Agnes Street
Rabbie are they the same picture?

Yeap Joop, both snips were cut from the same image. Yet another lucky from the vitual midden. Might be able to date it from state of building, cars, trams etc,.

In order to solve the riddle of "The Wee Wifie in the Funny Coat.", I am raking the vitual midden for more images. My close associates in The Berlin Bunker may have some pre-dating the var, you know.

The Luffwaffle did a better job of collecting aerial images of Glasgow than our RAF Blue Jobs did. Mind ye the RAF did not have any nefarious intent.

This picture shows the wooden gym hall down the side of the school.The buiding between the tenements in Agnes Street was a garage.
One of the things that jumped out was the density of the housing in such a small area which is unrecognisable today.

I used to live in Number 10, kelvinside Avenue, the chip shop (baldes).The owner had a bald head,we used to call him baldie.was next to us.The side entrance to the shop was in side our close.ABOUT The shops, There was a Shop on the left going UP, to wards the H.L.I. Pub,Maryhill Road,The Owners name was Mr Sing,it was a very small shop.He used to give everyone Tick.(pay you on pay day) lol.Over on the other side,going down towards the swing park.There was some shops,and one of the shops was turned in to a sweatshop.I remember it had double light blue doors. The picture of the lady WALKING UP THE HILL.Is where the sweatshop use to be.They made them nylon hooded zip child jackets with the furry lining in them.My mum used to get them cheap from there because it was a little factory.The owners where from Indi. My family move from Kelvinside ave in 1971 when i was 12 years old,to live in Merseyside.I still miss Glasgow to this day.We had a great childhood there.

when I first came to the States ,Imet a nice elderly man and woman from Kelvinside Ave ,they were so good to me ,their names were Bill &Isabel Cambell ,they came here to join their daughter Isobel and their son -in-law Stanley Brown ,the year I met them was 1959

Reply to above..

Bill and Isobel (Iza) lived top flat @ 12 Kelviside Ave, Bill was a miller at a Partick four mill. Stan brown, deceased, was my best pal in Glasgow, later in Norwalk CN after we moved to the US.

Stan is survived by a son, James whom I think served in the US military. Stan had a brother by his American mother.... lost track of Isobel in Maine circa 1970.

Hi all, I lived in 12 Kelvinside Ave from when I was 11 till I was 16. The Campbell’s lived below us on the second floor next to the Baries and I can remember a Mr Legette in the close flat who always chased us for playing there when it rained. In number 10 the McDougall’s and the Woods lived and in numbed 14 the Gallagher’s. The Taylor lived on Maryhill Rd, and the McCluskey’s in the corner close. I remember these because they all shared the same back court as me where we played. Yes there was a chip shop you entered from number 10 and the HLI was on the corner with Maryhill RD on the same side as the chippy and that was on your left as you looked at Maryhill Rd. Opposite the HLI and chippy was the Dairy next to Agnes Lane where I helped out once for a bit as a milk boy delivering milk in the area. There was a shop at around number 18 owned by a Pakistani family, the son, who I met a few years late gained a degree in I think philosophy and one in politics.

The houses were demolished because there was old mine workings below the area and during the war the bombing caused the mine workings to become unstable and the ground to slowly sink. Our living room had a clack running from floor to ceiling that continued to reappear every time my parents decorated. The tenements were demolished because they thought they were dangerous. If anyone remembers seeing a painting of a laughing caviller on a top floor room wall after the back facade came down then that was our bedroom, my two brothers and I.
