My Gran, Maggie Lindsay [married to neil] lived in Rutland Cres, then moved just over the road to 69 Paisley Rd West. They were a big family, 4 boys and 4 girls. Johnny, Jimmy, Duncan, Neil, Margaret, Mary, and twins Rose and Cathy.

Sadly all gone now, except for my aunties Margaret and Mary. Wondering if anyone on the site remembers the Lindsays. They were, by all accounts, a formidable family.

I certainly remember being sent for a "wee message" when I was small, either to McCalls, or the Dairy, or Cochranes. Going to Woolies was the greatest treat though.

Yours aye

Dear Evelyn
Good to hear from you again. I was wonder about what you said about the Clarks just trying to remember if I played with them as George was a little older than me and Douglas was a little younger. My brother Adam was just over 4years older than I, sadly my brother passed away in 1998.
So this started me thinking who my chums were when I was at Rutland Crescent School. Andrew Burliegh who lived next close (No 20?) was a chum, and his brother William would be around Adams age, their father was a janitor, Neil Lindsay and Alan Eccles.
Robert Walker ages with Douglas Clark who lived the close next to the school.
In the same close where Bonar lived who owned the grounds behind our backyard, and raced pigeons.
Joe Carrigan who I think lived above Richard and William Isherwood the last close on our side. (Paisley road west)
Do you remember Mrs Kavanagh family who lived above the Farmers, her daughter taught the piano.
Hope to hear from you soon.
Jim

Haven,t been on this site for a couple of years and pleasant surprise to see you Jim and Evelyn have been in touch. You both brought back fond memories of Rutland Crescent, makes me smile when I see the flats that are where the galvy was. I remember George and Douglas Clark they had 2 younger brothers John and Raymond. Above our house was Mrs Scullion, her daughter Josephine taught the piano. I see David Meldrum regularly as he has a caravan same place as us. I remember all the others you mentioned Alan Eccles, Neil Lindsay his brother Duncan, Robert Walker, Andrew and William Burleigh also Rena Hill and Anna Bone. Happy days Kick the can, arrows etc Will check site more regularly. Best wishes .

Hi there I went to Rutland Crescent School and my piano teacher was Josehine Scullion! I remember the Isherwood brothers, they were at my birthday parties so long ago. I am delighted to think that someone remembers Farmers Dairy ! I used to go there as a child to get in this order - two gingerbread, two askit powders and five woodbine for my granny. I would love to chat with anyone who remembers Jeannie and Ninian Craig who lived at 22 Rutland Crescent. I lived there until my dad came home from the war and then we lived at 6 Mair Street. I went to Rutland Crescent Primary School and then Ruchazie. Please contact me if you remember these times. Jane MacLeod (nee Graham)

I wonder if anyone remembers me or my family. My granny lived at 22 Rutland Crescent and I went to Rutland Crescent School until I was about 11. I have a photograph of William and Richard Isherwood who were at one of my birthday parties. I was taught the piano by Josephone Scullion and I remember going to Farmer's Dairy for two gingerbread, two Askit powders and five Woodbine for my granny. Maybe someone remembers my granda Ninian Craig. He was a crane driver but before that had three dairies in the area. He liked his whisky and I do believe the polis were frightened from him! My granny was Jeannie Craig, she had three daughters, Jean (Lorne Street),Chrissie (McLelland Street) and Cathie in Mair Street(my mum now in a nursing home with Alzheimers). There was also sons Andy and Ninian. I remember my pal Rena Sinclair who also lived at 22, the Lindsays and the Lowries who lived across the landing from granny. I remember Miss Mack's the wee shop across from 22 with the stout advert in the window, Frank's ice cream shop on the PRW and the wee church I used to attend in Portman Street. My sunday school teacher lived across the road from granny called if I remember rightly Ellen McGilvray.

Hope someone remembers us.

Hi - I wonder if anyone remembers my family, the McLaughlins - we lived (I think) at no.10 Rutland Crescent. I was only 3 when we moved away (to East Kilbride), and my younger brother was only 2, but my older brother Richard must have gone to Rutland Primary. My Mum was called Helen, and my Dad was Bill.

I was born in Rutland Crescent and went to Rutland Crescent school. Does anyone remember the dairy which belonged to my mother and father? We lived at number 18.

Hi Rena i stayed at No20 top floor,myself my sister Lily and brothers Robert and Allan McLachlan.

I remember your mums shop well, she would give my mum tick on a Monday to be paid on Friday. Didy our dad not drive with Milanda bakeries. I used to hang about with Duncan Lindsay, Jim Docherty. Johnny Hodgeman, and Danny McKinnon. Lots of memories about the Crescent, mostly good. Spent most of our winter nights in Ossies (Europe Cafe) owned by Oswald and his sister Eva.
