Ceader boy sadly it is my cousin you were talking about, we called him eddie after his dad. He had a wee flat on Maryhill rd at one time. I think it was his brother John you must be talking about with the ginger hair. They all used to drink in the viking pub. They lived in shannon street ruchill. cheers Margie.

I put a post on another "Maryhill Rd." Thread and then found this 'wee gem' of a Thread that answered all my questions. 735 Maryhill Rd. and Kelvinside Ave area. I thought the pub on the corner was The H.L.I. but see on the Map that it was "The Kelvinside Vaults"
The photo, that drew so much debate, had me in tears as it clearly shows my old close, the window where my wife and two boys, 'hung ower the windae' waving me "Goodbye!" as I left for Canada. (I wasn't to see them again for another 19 years, don't ask, again) the Bank and Pub corners. There was a Bookie at our closemooth (don't ask, cannie remember, LoL!) I only knew Charlie Tuck in Springburn an' Bell the Bookie, further up Maryhill Rd near The Barracks??
A great Thread and THANK YOU ALL WHO POSTED PHOTOS, BRILLIANT OF YOU TO SHARE!

I do believe that Willaim Hill took over from Bell's the bookie.
Was the Politician next door to it?

Ha! Ha! Mitchell, the only reason I remembered "Bell the Bookie" on Maryhill Rd. was, their son Eddie and I used to winch lassies fae Muirhead and Eddie would sometimes give me a 'hurl back hame' tae Barmulloch in his big American motor. He had also lived in Canada (Port Credit) and I got a wee bit pre- immigration info from him on where to live, drink, look furr burds, LoL! (Funny how ah remember aw that stuff eh? LoL!) Sorry pal.

Here's a wonderful colour snap of St George's Rd looking down to the Cross, taken from North Woodside Rd. This is where Number 403 was.
Thanks to Jim Purplethistle for this. If you want to see more of the same, I'm giving a talk/slide show of the area, St George's Cross to Queen's Cross 1950-1975, in Woodside Library on Tuesday
12 th January at 6.30.

Le durachd,

Eddy

My Grandmother Janet (Jessie) Rowe owned the Ayrshire Dairy almost at the corner of St Georges Road and North Woodside Road. My mother Jeanette and Mary Lord also worked there. I have a picture somewhere of them standing in front of the shop. If I find it I'll post it here.

the shop on the right hand side was the ayrshire dairy we down at night time bought hot rolls they were delicious :P with echo margarine :D came from cedar place cheers c/b

The shop beside the Ayrshire Dairy was called Auto Way and sold car parts, run by Pam and Gordon ( can't remember their surname but they stayed in the Red Road flats) . The next street on the right going away from the Ayrshire Dairy is Windsor Terrace - now closed off and the entrance built over. The first floor at the corner has two windows blocked off. This room actually faced into Windsor Terrace. This was the sitting room of my gran's 9 apartment house - address 4 Windsor Terrace. Once the council had decided on demolition, she lost the Ayrshire Dairy and her house to be moved into the new high flats built at Cowcaddens (6 Dundasvale Court).

Just down from Glenfarg Street stayed Miss Crawford - a dance school teacher who regularly took her pupils to the Pavilion to perform. She too lost her house and was put in 22 Dundasvale Court.

Help from anyone who remembers.
I've been searching to findwhat the name of Maryhill Road might have been in 1913-14, specifically 715. I know Maryhill road was about 7 miles long! I know some Glasgow streets where changed at one time. I've already tried Gairbraid Ave, Wyndford, and Canniesburn Road, but just can't find number 715.
Same with St. George's Road, number 403. Did it have another name for that address section or what?
I'd love to know the cross streets name if at all possible .

Thanks,
JD

I'm actually trying to locate Young Eddie Bell, somewhere along the line I'm related to him, and well possibly you.

Hi Sam and Melanie, dont know were to start but I am Eddie Bell Jnr (not been a jnr for many's a year). I have not saw or heard from any of "the bells" since I was very young neither have my sisters Tracey and Kim. If your still on this forum I'd love to hear from you. I will check back in a few days to see if there has been a reply.
