  Hi Folks Our family lived in 20 Kelvinhaugh Street and we all went to Kelvinhaugh Primary School. Myself in the years 1964-1970. My Dad was Fazal Muhammad and I has 4 brothers and an older sister.
In our close we were friends with the McClean family Ann & Margaret. In our street opposite were The Rooney family but they went to a different school.
At number 30 lived the Ali family who were great friends back then too.
I remember the Head Mrs McCloud, Mrs Scott and Mr McKnott.My best friend at school was John Melville.
I loved living in the Haugh but they started tearing down the tenements and everyone moved elsewhere.
Great memories of the place. Have driven many times down Kelvinhaugh street and up to the primary school ,but it has all changed.

Hi All,

My name is Heather and I was born in 1947 in Stobhill and from then
I lived at 216 Kelvinhaugh Street, brothers Robert and Francis and sister Hazel Mclean. I went to Kelvinhaugh Primary and Miss Hepburn was my first teacher. I don't remember many names but Susan Sneddon and her sister lived next door. I have a photo of the primary 1 class and it shows Mary Hunter and Marion and A blond boy called Philip. We had a front door and a bathroom, so very lucky. My Dad, Robert McLean was a good friend of Gavin Bone and this family were one of the first to get. Tv in the street, I think. We all used to go to Gavin Bone junior's house to see Children's hour. A few years back, I went to the school. And met the janitor, Beatrice. Her father was ages with my brothers and she thought he had a photo of our house but I never got a copy or heard any further. There was a sweet shop next to us and a Policeman's Box. We used to buy halfpenny oxo cubes from the wee shop in Dock Street. My Granny came to live with us and we were rehoused to Knightswood and a different world around 1954. I'd love to hear from anyone who remembers us.

Great to find this site.

Hi Florrie,
Have just learned of this site and your message was the first one on the list but was dated April 2009 so hopefully I,m not too late in replying. My name is Dan Harvey and I was born at 12 Sandyford St way back in 1927 bur spent most of my Haugh days living at 1 Dock St. I knew both your parents and also your brothers Jimmy and Eddy and almost everyone else who came from the Haugh. I know that Eddy emigrated to Canada and settled in Toronto and that he was in touch with Billy (Stud) McGurk aand his nephew Frisco Ianello who like yourself was born at 5 Dock St. I left the haugh in 1968 and moved to Knightswood but I still pay an occasional visit to the old place. I think the school is all that remains of the old days but but just walking along Gilbert St down Sandyfford St and back along Kelvinhaugh St is great therapy for me at my advanced age. Hope you and the family are all well.
