Yes ladies some very nice pics on the forum.Big changes ahead on the old school site.Im surprised it has taken so long for it to happen but it is really in full swing now.The lane in one of the pics separated the original NK building at the top of the drive from what became the New building.
ScotsKiwiLass I think you will be hard pushed to recognise many of the locales;the place has changed beyond recognition in my opinion.In addition to the new development on the school site there is a new block of flats on the site at the corner of Queen Mgt Drive and Oban Drive.I took my pic today in Oban Drive and I was amazed at the number of For Sale and To Let Signs which have appeared recently.I think as a result of the new developments.
I dont suppose it would do if we stood still and I think Maryhill is no different.

Wap rhymes wi "cap" an Wah rhymes wi "Ma", no Maw. But mebbe that's blank verse ye're writin,eh? smile.gif


Benny, I’m not 100% sure, but I think Ionnsaigh intended the ‘a’ in ‘wah’ to be pronounced as ‘o’.

As English is such a stupid, illogical langauge, phonetically speaking, you have to deduce the pronunciation of a word from its context, as in :

ah hit ma heid aff the wa’

Instead of writing ‘wah’, Ionnsaigh could have written :
wa’ or
waw or
wo

Although I’m not sure what a ‘wap’ is and what a ‘wah’ is, anyway, I don’t think it really matters.
So ah’m also gon hame tae ask ma maw.

When I was going to NK School in the 1950's, my pal and I would sometimes catch a bus from Doncaster Street and sometimes walked. I don't remember the names of most of the street but I can remember going up Stair Street, then on to the top of Oban Drive. There were some nice houses around there, some of them bungalow or semi-detached, if my memory serves me right. They always seemed so appealing, compared to the old tenements we lived in.

I wonder if anyone can recall a tragic gassing in the Maryhill area? It was between 1953 and 1956 and I think it was in one of the streets between Queen's Cross and NKS. My pal and I were walking to school when we saw an ambulance. As always, people were crowded around to see what was going on. Sadly, it turned out to be a gassing and there were, I think, 3 small bodies carried out wrapped in blankets. Someone said they were all dead. I never heard anything more about it and have often wondered what was the truth and if it was an accident or something more sinister.

Great photo of Stair Street, Jupiter - its the first one I've seen. Is that Braeside Street the blue car is parked on?

Did you live in Hinshaw Street? My family lived at No.43 up until 1955. After we moved to Cadder, I went to my pal's home for lunch every day, so I was still familiar with the area until I left NKS in 1957.

Cheers,

Thats still Braeside street although it has been turned into a chicane for safety reasons(?).It is a nice wee spot round there with the red sandstone tenements down into Lyndhurst Gardens and Wilton Crescent.
I walked up from Hinshaw Street every day for a couple of years up to NK school.Brought up in Hinshaw Street in 50s and stayed till late 70s.
I think I have a few pics Ill put on,maybe you have seen them.Anyway I hope you enjoy your visit here.Im off to Oz soon for six weeks. rolleyes.gif

Thanks, Jupiter, would I be right in thinking the new development in Hinshaw Street is replacing the old yellow coloured buildings at the corner of Maltbarns Street? I think the brick buildings on the right of the photo replaced the old tenement we lived in (No.43). There was a gap between ours and the Maltbarns Street buildings. These new ones look really nice - I am looking forward to seeing the area.

Is the Queen's Cross pub still on Garscube Road, facing into Hinshaw Street?

Enjoy your holiday in Australia. It's a good time to go there as it is not too hot at this time of the year. I don't like hot weather though I lived through 3 sweltering summers in Sydney in the late 1970's.

Irrie, no it wasn't the Fleet, these people were more like a kind of sect, wish I could remember their name, but they were very scary anyway.

Used to call tongs u bass, worked out of Maryhill garage in 1965 to 1967 ,,

John welcome to the forum.I think the war cry was, "Tongs Ya Bass" as in the vernacular as opposed to the very proper sounding,"u Bass" rolleyes.gif
Tell us more about the Garage,John.
