Aye Georgia.it was Galls.Remember they used to have hundreds a boxes of nylons,and would bring them all down,and show you fully fashioned,semi fashioned,seemless etc..The assistant would put her hand in the stocking,to show you how sheer they were..all for one and elevenpence halfpenny..
Maybe am before your time Georgia...you could buy all your wool there too,and undies...Remember Irelands the chemist.a coupla shops up the road from Galls,wi the giant green bottle,outside,showing it was a chemist.

Yes there was three shops. The firm started 1902 as Stephen Tuck and Sons. Stevie Died ,his widow took over, Hannah. Her son, "Stevies Charlie also ran a shop.the other shop Was Big Charlie . I don`t think they got on too well,Hannah & Big Charlie. BC`s son wee Charlie also tried to be a bookie. My Father Wee Geordie had his main pitch at 103 Wellfield St, although hes also had lifters set up in all the local works. N.B. Loco, The Marne , Atlas , Cowlairs and a few more I can`t remember.The "lines " went by timeclock bag To Big Charlies Office before each race. To cut a long story short the business was sold to John Boyle ,and I beleive he went on and upwards from there . The Tucks didn`t have much imagination when it came to names, there`s now names like Charlies, Charlies , Stevies Charlie , Stevies charlies stevie. The other Tucks My Uncles. were Tommy an Engineer (My Fav., ) John, There was one played for Petershill. A sister Ruby Who lived above Hannah`s shop. My Father Moved to San Pedro California (L.A. Harbour).Geordie Passed and My Mother Agnes (Ruby) Sons and Daughters all live in Cal. Me , at the moment about 2mils. east of Ben Lomond, 100 odd mls., south of Glasgow about 50mls from Livingstone. in Middle Tennessee. All The Best .

Hi Toerag My Mother would prabebly have Known Nan, I think she sent both my sisters there. My Mother was on the Stage before she married Wee Geordie Tuck. Sometime if she was between shows she`d babysit for Jack & Maisie Short. THe Logan Family , that`s when Jimmy was a boy. I think they lived in Keppochhill Road up by the old Police Station.

I know how some of you feel. First time I went back to Springburn I was LOST , Totally lost. I drove up what I thought was Springburn road,that monument to the Automobile That Destroyer of Towns , Districts , Businesses , where real people Lived, Played, Worked. That Scythe that cut through the Heart of Springburn. The loss of Industry did not help Springburn,but Springburn was a Vibrant City within a City. That Monster By pass Killed it along with the lack of thought to what it would do to the Area. The Tax base alone at one time would have equalled places as big as Falkirk,Stirling and such. I feel Saddened and Guilty that I never stayed and devoted my energies to making Springburn what it could and should be. Tom and Molly Weir are Great examples of what Springburn can produce.
