Hi julz, OK thats me home from Spain.
I have had a quick look, The Crown Cinema was on the same side of the road, its number was 163, so I will have a look at the maps I have and see where 145 was, then I will check if I have a photo of the tenemenet.
I may have to go to The Mitchell Library to check out some addresses.
Keep me in mind of this.
Bye for now, Norrie

Hi Murn? Nippy? thanks for pointing Julz in my direction

Hi julz, OK, I have checked my photos and maps.
I think the house you are looking for, was between Balatter st and Rutherglen rd
I have photos of Crown St but cant be sure of your house being on them.
However I do have an arial shot of Gorbals and that and the maps show that there were houses at that part of Crown st , any use to you?
Bye for now, norrie

Old Gorbals , Hello everyone I would like to add my name and chime in to this topic .My Granmom Mary Long lived at 428 Rutherglen road and was a Confectioner , Although I am not sure where she worked ,She left Glasgow in 1925 at the age of 17 ,and Emmigrated to Phila Pa USA {Thank God because I would NOT be here if She didn't } so if she worked at the closest place I'm assuming it moght be the UNCOPB at MCNeil street ,it being the closest Although I'll never know for certain the Building looked impressive If anyone had anyone who knew Mary Long 17 in 1925 she was very tiny a WEE lass 4'8 it is dead end A Long shot at best BUT just maybe ????????? Sincerely Seamus

A wee bit off topic because I cant remember the street but when i was a young fella in the late 50's to early 60's i was taught drumming by a drum teacher in the Gorbals. His name was Lester Penman and he was a very famous musician who had played at the London Palladium. He was also a good friend of one of the greatest drummers of all times the legendary American Gene Krupa. I remember his flat was on the top storey and was huge with one room devoted to his drum teaching. I think his street ran parallel to Eglinton Street and I think there was a big cinema nearby where i got off either the tram or bus, cant remember which, but I do remember his flat was just a short walk away. Sorry for rambling on but it was a very happy time for me.

I seem to recall Penman family.from the 50's, don't know if the one you refer too.

They came from Abbotsford Place, it runs parallel with Eglinton Street, unsure.gif

Hi Stratson

Funny old life but I was trolling through google earlier today looking for some info and was linked to one of my earlier GG posts to do with my old drum teacher Lester Penman. I then noticed you replied to my post but I it appears I didnt reply to you

The Penman I was taught by did live in Abbotsford Place in a very big flat which I think on the top floor as I recall. I have however no knowledge about Lesters family, in fact I dont remember ever meeting any of his family.

Does anyone remember McKay's a sweetie factory? My Mother worked there from when she left school at 14 around 1936 and was there for around 15 years. She loved it. She mentioned this last night and said it was a great job making hand made sweets.

Nice to see the mention of Lester Pennman in your pages. my Dad was taught by him way back and went on to be a World Champion dance band drummer.I am inamodel railway club in Glasgow and one of our members was also taught by Mr. Pennman , who was a bit strict going by some of the stories my Dad told me of him , but it seems to have worked. Sadly ,I have lost the photo I had of Lester.
