Hi, guys! It’s been a l-o-n-g time since I was on the Boards. Sorry about that. Major health problems. Anyway, I was investigating Black Street Clinic on Google and up came this page.
Before you throw your hands up at the brazen hussy flaunting her frequent use of The Clinic, I have to point out this was the days of rampant TB, lung disorders, all that stuff (the 50s) in Glasgow. Mum explained when I was older that Black Street was a main clinic for TB, etc. but I always meant to check this up. My first memories of attending the clinic was when I was very young - I was 2, Mum told me. I had a lumbar puncture the horror of which I will be haunted forever.
I was fascinated by the mention of Rattray’s. It was in McAuslan Street, round the corner from my Auntie in Taylor Street and on my everyday walk to and from St David’s Primary in St James’ Road. One day, on my way to school after my lunch, the Rattray’s men were having a game of footie in the street and didn’t even stop for a wee 8 or 9 year old. The heavy football was given a right hard kick, hit me full in the face, knocked me clean off my feet and broke my nose. I ran to Auntie’s, poring and covered with blood.
Rab, I think we mentioned years ago that we must have been brought up in the very same area of Toonheid. smile.gif

Nice to see your post Sumac thumbup.gif

When I was just about old enough, I went out with a girl from your bit of the world. I couldn't understand why my pals were giving me funny looks when i told them she lived in Black Street blush.gif

I'm not sure if you comment was to Rab or Rabbie. Unfortunately Rabbie passed several years ago.

Dont think the Black st Clinic is the one your talking about Sumac. The 'Clinic' was 67 Black st. Reason I know is because I lived at 66.
The TB, Bronchitis clinic was at the top of Black st with the main entrance on Baird st.
Incidentally the new building that was built after the TB clinic was demolished, has a very similar look to it.

Ah, thanks, Dave. I'm glad to hear I wasn't seen going into the STD clinic from the tender age of about 2!!!
