Can anybody remember the name of the street in Townhead that ran across Parson Street, parallel to Stanhope Street and before you came to Glebe Street?.

The 1894 map shows the street but doesn't name it.

It might have been St. Mungo Street but I'm not sure.

Jings, wit a nice wee thread, dunno how I missed this wan for all this time! Some wee hidden gems around.!

So, so, so close to hame all this is, my G/Grandparents, lived in Parson St (92), around 1900's. No shure which pub was the nearest, but I'll find oot. Might have been The Broons Bar!

Peachy, I remember yer Da's shop very well, used to nip it to on the way back frea the baths in Collins St!. Remember The Red Rooster at end of Cathedral St, used to do rare chips in there. I loved aw the wee shops and cafes around the place, was so full of life them. Weans oot playing at all hours without a care in the world. Changed days, an some changes are noo fur the better either.

Mossman is no there noo, but it has moved to a wee place in High St, it in a shop which was I tink was Clyde Books.

Garden St, like most of Auld Toonhied was lost in 60's / 70's, I think it was up right hand side of Weaver St, which still had working gas lights in very early 70's! There was a wee swing park and I think it was just up past it. Prolly under Strathclyde Uni noo. Think it ran between Weaver st and Taylor St up the tap near Rottonrow. I think I might have a 60's pic of that area, I will ferret aroond and see if I can find it.

I could ramble aon fur hours!

Gezzus, as for the tarrzy near the Bridge of Sigh, in Wishart St, what a backdrop! Spent hoors on that wi all my pals. Dunno if tree is still there, think it fell doon.

Black holes are where God divided by zero.
