Colin MacLean went to GHS from 1965 to 1971 so you wouldn’t have met. Pity.



Just a youngster then!

  Sumac, May I ask what your husband's name is, the reason being that I went to Glasgow High School 1951 - 59.

  I'll be on page 11 or somewhere back there!
I was born in Lennox Castle, lived at 40 Parson Street, Townhead, till I was 12, attended St Davids Primary, then moved to Tillycairn Road in Garthamlock. We had to leave there 4 years later when very undesirable neighbours moved in and started a vendetta against us. This was mainly because my mum worked 3 cleaning jobs to send my sister and I to Girls High. We still had our friends from Townhead and Garthamlock, but life was horrible in the countryside we loved.
We moved to Armadale Street, Dennistoun. I hated life in the town after being able to wander the fields before (although I also disliked Garthamlock at first because there were no shops to wander round).
I now live in sunny Ayrshire (42 years) with my Boys High hubby.

  Hi, Kassy here can't believe I have been a Member for 5 years.

I was born at home 124 Bluevale Street Glasgow and finally ended up living in Yorkhill Street until I was 18 then I moved met an American and the rest is history I live in the States now only been back for my mams funeral. Starting making contact with someone who knew some of my family but that came to a stop. I enjoyed my school days at Kelvinhaugh School then Finnieston School.
I have a school photo from Kelvinhaugh School must get it put up incase anyone remembers themself. I miss Glasgow and hope my family will trace my steps someday.

  Oh Megrose, I used to look across at the steel houses and wish I lived in one and not up that horrible tenement building. We were in the first close,I think Kilberry St was the street round the corner. One day we went out pushing our pram and a wee drain on the pavement outside our close was spewing out sewerage,and we had to veer the pram around it. My husband said we`re getting out of here,and we came to Australia. Well it wasn`t all a bed of roses here at first,but it was good to get away from that lot of stairs with my pram and 2 babies. We looked across at the gas works and the steel works,and fell asleep every night to the clanging and banging. Didn`t bother us in the least.When you`re young you can sleep through the blitz.

Our first single end was in 11 Forrestfield St,that was in 1958. The whole street red buildings and ALL single ends,"lovers lane " they called it,loads of weans up every close,and I added 2,before coming to Australia in 1961.We were on the top storey,that was really a 4 storey building,and we could see Bothwell on a clear day. It was like fairyland at night. I loved the hot summer nights,we`d open the window and watch the lights in the distance all twinkling.


We lived on the other side of the street in the 'Steel Houses'. Later, we moved down the road to Kintyre Street and my grandma continued to live there until the 1960s. Talking of seeing the lights, reminded me of when we lived on Kintyre Street and, at night, I used to watch the bright light from the furnace at the Blochairn Steel Works across the spare ground.

I was born in Lennox Castle Hospital, although we lived on Forrestfield Street in Royston - Garngad as was. I started school at St Roch's primary, but we moved to England in 1953. I still think of Glasgow as home, thou
