Hi everyone i was born at number 42 Sunnylaw Street back in 1963

my dads family lived there since the 30s in the old close type buildings until 1969

how things have changed we moved upto High Possil area of Parkhouse from 1969 - 1981.

lived in Germany for a while with forces until 93 came back Scotland now live in Loch Lomond

I still now and again drive through Glasgow and always drive towards Balmore Road where i go past the old Vogue Bingo hall / picture hall , doctors surgery remembering my old doctor Randal

then i drove upto my first old school St Cuthberts remembering meeting my first teacher Mrs Leonard omg and notice most of all Tenements have gone , dark buildings with there shiney clean landings of bygone years , people hanging out of their windows sharing a passing comment of good day etc not that long ago for a young man to remember bygone days of true neighbourhood friends.

Thank you Glasgow Lass for welcome

my mother who is in her late 80s now keeps going back to the old ways of life when she remembers back to time she moved to Glasgow from Perth and met my da & his family who where living in Possil park area of Sunnylaw Street.

His ,living room with its shiny polished Piano in pride of place a few chairs sideboard table etc

learning about his past as a Carter before the war no wonder he kept that from us my old da with a cart lol ohmy.gif done that job until he was 18yrs old until 42 called up and learned how to drive a proper truck ha ha

His family ie his dad must have been known since 30s as his dad occupation also was a Carter / Gas fitter / Bell hanger think its something to do with street lights " gas " i would love to know if anyone knew him his name was George Shearer died in 1951 aged 63 his wife Mary died in 1946 her name was Mary Feeney / Shearer my dads mum sadly he could not make her funeral as he was in Palestine until 1947 mellow.gif

Hallo, everyone. I used to live on Sunnylaw Street too, in the 50's and early 60's. I lived up at the top of the street, near where the coup started, but I don't remember the number of the close I lived in. It sure does look like it's changed a lot ...

Welcome to the board Wee Yin, I am almost certain I could possibly know your close, as I stayed at 90, I am presuming you must have at one time played football on the Second Square going by the dates that you posted,I dont want to sound to personal but if you put your name it would be most helpful
Cheers Flim
PS. There is a site on here and it is all about "DISTRICTS" and there is one of POSSILPARK
