I was born in Rotten Row Hospital and was brought up in Anderson...Finnieston Street. I have vague memories of playing down by the middens and sitting on some steep steps leading up to another street. I used to wet my knickers, take them off and throw them in the bomb shelter. My mother used to say she spent half her life going around searching for them!! Needless to say, I don't wet them now!!
I got married very,very young and moved with my husband to 84 McLellan Street, Kinning Park and we lived with his parents until we went back to London.
We then moved up to Thurso where he worked for the A.E.A..We left there and went to Zambia.

I had an Aunt and Uncle called Nicol who lived in 5 Hydepark Street.
My Uncle's parents lived up the stairs from them.

When we still lived in the town, I used to go to their house every second Friday night and stay the weekend to babysit my cousin so my Aunt could go to the steamie as my Uncle worked on a Saturday morning.

They were Members of a Church round the corner from them, but as I was Catholic my Aunt always got a neighbour, I think her name was Mrs Strain to take me with her and her family to Mass at St. Patricks Chapel.

I used to play with a girl Ann MacLeod who lived across the street from my Aunt.

My Dad was born at 64 Stobcross Street in 1887.

His brother James, wife and family lived in Piccadily Street.
My brother and I used to get the Ferry at Shearer St. when we went to visit post w.w.11.
I t had a spiral staircase the close.
They moved to Warroch St. later.
Wonder if any are still living(cousin's)
Uncle James and Auntie Mary Murray retired to Rothesay where they are buried in th Rothesay Cemetery.

what a coincidence, See you also had connections with the central hotel and the state cafe, Ilived at 83 stobross street until 1953, my mother worked at the central, we moved to barlanark and I used to go to the State cafe,in the early 60's was in the guides at Eastbank Academy, it is a small world,

I was born in 1947 and lived in 430 Argyle street , had my 1st Holy communion at st. patricks .
My dad was Duncan Moore and my mum was connie, her best friend was Eleanor Parker who had a son called William, but they moved away ,I think to Chesterfield .
My paternal grandad was Robert Moore , he died in 1963 and I remember going into his rooms ( I seem to remember we all lived in the same tenement ) and he used to dish out the malt from a big jug.
Moved away from glasgow and came to London in the late '50's but go back as often as I can .
My mum's sister was Jean married to tommy mcFadyen they lived in William street and then Carrick street.

Funny things happen and while I don't know any of the names you mention I had a Great Granny who lived in William Street (No. 15 I think from memory) and a Granny who lived in Crimea Street, No. 32 on the corner of Carrick Street.

My Crimea Street Granny got moved to Scotstoun (I think the Plean Street Flats) in the early 1960s after my family emigrated to Australia.

Hi There. I don't recognise any names except for Cassidy? I was born at Rottenrow in 1950, lived at 4 North Street before moving to Knightswood in 1964. Was at St Patrick's Infants then moved to St Pat's in Bishop Street. I have put all of this in a book: Glasgow Smells. What a playground it was.
