you`re dead right Jagz,haepennies,but somewhere I remembered jorries too,still,it was a boys game,so i`m not up to scratch on it.I only played with the boys when it was rounders,so I just gave their other wee games a scant look.I think I was only allowed in the rounders team to fill up the numbers.

I never played moshie or jorries either Taurus, and rounders was the only game boys played with girls.

I always wished (ALMOST ) I was dragged-up in Embra, when I saw all the closes with doors and up to dozen doorbells. Whit fun ! I was sorely tempted, even in my 20s!

Give it up for the Lassie's they were fantastic playing at two game's the first one had two Lassie's one on each end of a long skipping rope and one at a time whilst singing a song 'My mother told me' all the Lassie's would jump one at a time into the skipping rope until you could sometime have about twenty skipping and singing at the same time looking back it was a fantastic sight. Game number two was Lassie's bouncing two balls at a wall at the same time singing songs and spinning around catching the balls very skillful.

Game number two was named ‘Doublers’ by the girls who lived in our tenement. It should have been named Russian Roulette by the girls who lived in our tenement. We lived in Garscube Road which was/is a main road in Glasgow leading to Maryhill.

Owing to the demand for the use of the clothes lines in the back court by their mothers, the girls would play doublers at the front of the building. Trams came hurtling downhill, in addition to the commercial traffic which included fast moving horse drawn carts. Thankfully very few motor cars were on the roads in those days, but the girls somehow avoided serious injury. Some of them would jump on the back of a cart for a hudgie, then jump off when the ball came into view.

On the subject of girls, I can’t remember seeing any photographs of girls getting a hudgie in any of the many historical books or newspaper articles regarding Glasgow schoolchildren. The girls in our tenement did. Okay Taurus, lets hear your hudgie story

True Ash, though i was thinking about sports with 'rounders', but yes Hide n Seek and Kick the Can were unisex games.

no.. hudgies were the realm of the boys,and when I was very young a wee boy in our street went under the wheels and got killed. That`s not a fun game at all.
they called the motor an "iley" ...oiley,as I picture it in my minds eye from eons ago,it was half a truck,the front half,obviously happy.gif ,thats what I remember going down Stevenson St in the Calton and the boys all chasing it.another dangerous thing I saw,was a boy on a bike,grabbing on to a truck for a free ride ,glad to be born a girl,play beds with chalk,doublers,skipping ropes and scraps.

While technically not a hudgie, I remember jumping on to a flatbed lorry around Edrom Street and not being able to get off until Parkhead Cross. Of course I had to walk back home but it tought me a lesson !

boys will be boys !
I only once tried the dyke.the boys around us were experts,they called it the jumps,jumping from one air raid shelter to another,like Tom Cruise does now. so i got up on the washhouse dyke,too scared to get down,a big crowd of kids shouting at me,and out comes my mum,got me down and a good doing when I got home. No,i`ll stay a girl,leave the stunts to the boys. I did love the skates though,jumping the stanks like the boys,carefree young days,nice to remember them.
