Hi all

I was born on Toonheid in Murray St next to the Grafton picture hoose moved to 31 St Mungo st in what was supposed to be an old converted convent which had a tunnel under the back stairs which led through solid rock halfway down street but can never find any history of this building which sat of Rd with own yards with one huge main house and upstairs long l shaped lobbies with wooden floors and six doors per landing can anyone throw light on this.

There was a Rumour that the tunnel at one time led to nercropolis in fact Jack House wrote a story of a piper and dogs who entered and never returned lol.

we had the stories and the myster and of course the maze of dunnies in McAslan St.

God bless old Toonheid.

Ty all.

Hi, I have just released a book on Amazon Kindle about the Townhead. It's called Parly Road by Ian Todd. It's fiction, although I have been meticulous in the street names and geography. It's about a group of young feral kids growing up in the Townhead in the summer of 1965. You don't have to have a Kindle to read it. There is an app that you can download on the same page that allows people with mobile phones and eBooks to read it. There is also a Facebook page called Johnboy Taylor The Glasgow Chronicles that has loads if photographs relating to the story.

Thanks, Ian.

My family the Blacks stayed at 322 McAslin street in Townhead. I think they got moved in the 1950's when their house was demolished for redevelopment. My grandmother Grace Hyslop also stayed with them, she died of Tuberculosis as did a few of her family or so the story goes, she was only about 19/20 when she died so I know very little about her, no photographs either.
