  Born March 1950 Milton Place Cowcaddens. It was small but a very busy place not very many houses (tenements) with outside toilets and only cold water. I remember a stable where men hired a horse and cart, rag store, glazing company and the Jungle bar at the top of the lane with the police station on the opposite side of the street.
It was always lively with children running in and out of the backcourts and i remember men singing in the back hoping someone would throw out pennies to them. I remember if we had any dinner left over my mum told me to give it to our elderly neighbours and our mum kept the milk in cold water in the sink.
The happiest memory for me was as a family we all lived next to each other within walking distance as was our school. I,m in the Cowcaddens often and can still picture how it looked in my day. Thanks to Norrie who has taken many photo,s of the area it keeps these memories alive.

Tomias, yes Dalglish's was in in Burnbank gardens, number 18 I recall.
It was in the basement, and got very crowded indeed.
It was open from 6 til 10 on a Sunday.
Later on in years ( about 1964) just around the corner, go up Burbank terrace, turn right and just about parallel with Dalglish's on great western road there was another dance place.
Not jiving though, it was called Stewart's.
It had a local regular band called the Mustangs.
They were well above average.
Good memories going to those places?


Hi Mitchell (which I assume is a Ref. to the library) Did you frequent Dalglish's yourself? If so what years and what is your name?
Cheers Tommy

Hi Tom just noticed your post...I've been off GG for ages and have just started looking again.
Thanks very much for your reply and I have let my mum know. Her maiden name was Betty Clark...maybe your wife new her ??

Regards,
Iain Dunn

Hi Iain - like yourself, I have not been on GG for a while. But yes - both my wife and I knew your mum. I for much longer because as a kid your mum lived just round the corner from me. She lived in Ruchill Street and I lived in Maryhill Road at the corner of Ruchill street. Tell your Mum that a few years ago - through an article in the Evening Times - an old "dance partner" of hers contacted us out of the blue - Jamie Campbell who was a dance partner of your Mums - then later of my wife Ann. Jamie lives in London but has visited us every year for the past 12 years when he comes up to visit hid brother. Is your Dad Pat still around? Does your mum still live in Acre Road?
Regards Tommy

  There was a girl lived in my street in the 50`s and she told me her dad started the Lindella club,she said it was named after the wives of the 2 partners,Linda and Ella. I didn`t take it too seriously at the time for where I came from people just didn`t start night clubs or any thing so upmarket,but not long after that I must say they started to look a bit affluent,not that they ever looked down at the heel beforehand. She was a really nice type of girl too,so I`d like to think what she said was in fact the case. Too late now to know.

yes pat if I remember right you had to go up some stairs to get in

This is correct. It was a dance club; don't remember it as being a "Jive School" The only time I went to have a look I refrained from going in as the clientele seemed far too young in my estimation. I was 22 at the time. It was famous at the time as it was a break in tradition from the big band dance halls dominating Glasgow entertainment at the time. From memory it was the first to start this trend.

  Does any one remember the Lindela Jive school in Union Street, Glasgow city center in the 50/60s?

Hi! just recently discovered this site and I spotted your request which I know was back in 2013. However, my wife Ann nee Holliday was a regular at Dalglish's and in fact received her Bronze, Silver and Gold medals for jiving during 1961. She was a member of the "Rockets" which was the Dalglish jiving display team who performed at various events. Her dance partner was Jamie Campbell who often helped Mr. & Mrs. Dalglish instruct the younger kids. Hope this stirred some memories for your Mum and that she is still well,
Regards Tom Macdonald
