Nope.... by then the place was full of ANIMALS !!!!

well, not quite but it was on a slippery slope by then. If only the people who introduced drugs into Arden had been stopped on time - who knows?
John Healy was instrumental in bringing drugs into Arden and he got TEN YEARS for doing it.
Served him right.... but it never stopped him. Now his son is doing it (allegedly) rolleyes.gif

I lived in Kilmuir road in the 80's, nothing but happy memories. moved to Kilmartin place and lived there for a few years before going to the 5's. Loved the place then. Used to drink in the trade winds with my dad and uncle.

Wouldn't wanna live there now though.

Hi just found this place,I have lived in Arden since 1960. Yes there was gang`s if more than 2 people walked down the street they were called gang`s,and as the guy earlier said about playing fitba,most of us did that during the day and tanned hoose`s at night(WTF do you think we are)or any one else for that matter any where else,and I could guarantee that there was a lot better class of people that stayed these places than there was the one`s that left............. Yes we all had or moment`s and that is what memories are made of,and by the way I am still in ARDEN...................... tongue.gif

I lived at 21 kilmuir drive from 1957 to 1973, when I left to get married, I had a great childhood there. we played over the Puggy and in the RSD, it was such an adventure. We would also walk to the shady brook and fish for minnows and tadpoles. Skipping ropes in the street and th boys playing football or marbles in the stanks. Life was so easy then. I would love to hear from others who remember this too.

hi all. I lived in Arden 18 Kilmuir road from 1957-1966 and have very fond memories. although I was aware of gangs and the graffitti it did not affect me at all. there never was much to do except clubs at the school but it was pre-computers and mobile phones so we played outside all the time and only went home to eat and sleep. Happy days! as some others have mentioned it was a big community and most people knew one another for better or worse. same old story whatever age we live in. Kids always complain there is nothing to do.

The last time I visited my cousins Tommy & Frankie Campbell and my Aunt Isabel Emanuel was in 1960 before I moved stateside. They lived at 92 Kyleakin Terrace, and it was way better than our flat in Possilpark, Sunnylaw Street. I wish I could find them now (Tom & Frankie).

Sorry to hear about the downward spiral of the Thornliebank neighborhood,

In the late 60's to mid 70's I worked as a service engineer for a south side firm and I used to dread going into certain parts of Arden. I would leave my van in the street as I made my call and could never be sure when I returned to it would still have it's wheels, however I do have to say that many of the people I visited were the salt of the earth but in some streets they just seemed to have thrown in all the scum bags and troublemakers

ave got my opinion as well

Ah Summy just seen this, Kenny & jim were two great guys Kenny dearly missed, jim too big to miss,had a lot of great games of fitba and fun with them both, and they were not aggressive people, and that was the thing about Arden it was full of good decent people, and a couple of idiots, who could not fight sleep............................. yes.gif

Hi Don Cairns here, I lived in Arden from 1955 - 1973, My Family moved from Pollokshaws to Arden, in 1955 when The Scheme,was just opening, we first stayed at ( 30 Kilmuir Road for about 6 or7 years ) then moved up to ( 72 Kyleakin Road ) Arden was a great Place to grow up in and I made a lot of great Pals growing up. ( and enemies as well ) I got married in ( 1973 ) and moved to Auldhouse, but went back every week to visit my Mum and Dad, and have a game of Football up either of the Pitches of the Schools on a Sunday afternoon. As I said Arden holds many Great Memories growing up. If anyone knows me get in touch through the Site.

Lived in Kennishead flats 1970-74. My Da worked in Rawlplugs (he also managed the works fitba team). When I was on summer hols I'd take his pieces to him and join in the game at dinner-time. Got there by walking along the puggy to the industrial estate. Had a mate Rab White that lived on Kilmuir Rd (37? God knows how I remember that...
