Hi there guys.

I remember living in Plant Street. I was only about 5 or 6 years old at the time. I'd like to know the name of the primary school there that I would have gone to. Money was transferring to the new currency, so I would have been there 1970/1971/72. Plant Street was falling down and we had an outside toilet in the stair. Does anyone remember Plant Street before it was demolished?

I was brought up in Plant Street in the 60s. We had an outside toilet and Mum used to fill an old tin bath every Sunday for our weekly bath! We had great fun playing round the midgy bins in the back court. We would play at kiss catch torture and kick the can. Only the very brave would hide in the dungey. I was an only child, so a wee bit better off than some of the larger families, but I remember all of us kids were very happy. My father kept a pony in the old stables on Duke Street. I spent many happy days in there being spoiled by all my dads rag and bone mates and helping with the horses. Oh happy happy days. My summers were spent in Campbeltown. My Mum comes from there and is living there now. She worked in Macfarlane Langs biscuit factory. Our whole family lived in the same close at number 33. All from Campbeltown. Mum used to bring home broken biscuits for all the kids.

Do you remember James and Marion McNaught who lived at number 39 Plant Street late 60's early 70's ??

Hi Catherine, I'm trying to track down my family history and I have passenger records that say my Great-Grandfather lived at this address in the 1920s. Do you have any information on the house or who owned it before? His name was Alexander McKay You can email me here.
If anyone else has any information, please let me know. Unfortunately my grandfather doesn't really know a lot about his parents.
