Quite a few years ago I also took a walk about the Cowcaddens then up to North Woodside Road and was dismayed to discover that St. Joseph's Chapel had been demolished.

My sister in America wanted a picture of St. Joseph's Primary School because no one would believe her that the playground was on the roof of the School. It was the same with the boys Primary school.

Friends find it hard to believe that I was never in a mixed class all through school. All though the Infant School was mixed, there were too many girls started at the same time so my class was all girls, and the girls and boys Primary schools were separate.

Recently I have been thinking about taken another walk up the Cowcaddens, I think it's that nostalgia that comes with age.
I also want to see if the stairs in Possil Road still lead into Hamiltonhill Road where my Granny Curran lived at NO. 35.

hi, does anyone remember a street in Cowcaddens called Oakbank Street? My dad, who recently passed away lived there as a child and as a young man. I am trying to find out as much about his early life as i can but have had little luck so far - even the mitchell library online had nothing. His name was John Campbell and he went to Oakbank School around 1935-36 and St. George's School around 1941/42. If anyone can help with any of this I would be very grateful.

thanks

Colin, we moved from the Cowcaddens when I was still at school. But as I remember, Oakbank Street was further up the Garscube Road heading towards Maryhill or about the Round Toll, one of my Uncle's lived there.

Hi Colin Campbell,

I do not beleive there was an Oakbank Street but there was an Oakbank Terrace. Right across
from Oakbank School my uncle lived there for quite while in the forties and fifties
before moving to Barmulloch.

Regards Hudggy

In the picture above Stow College is in Shamrock Street and on the other side of the Bank is New City Road which runs to Cowcaddens Street at one end and St. George's Road at the other.

I lived in Shamrock Street for the first few years I was married at the St. George's Road end, the part that was demolished to make way for the M8.

"do not beleive there was an Oakbank Street but there was an Oakbank Terrace. Right across

Sorry a'charaid, Oakbank St was one down from the Terrace on the way to the Round Toll. Funnily enough, I just met my current squeeze's sister-in-law, she came from Oakbank St. and I've e-mailed her the snaps I'm posting here.
I lived in Oakbank Terrace,went to Oakbank School and now live in Grovepark. If you click on Dimairt, to the left of this message, you'll get a list of all my postings, many of which have snaps of the area. If you have any snaps of the Terrace, or the area,please post them. If you have any requests, just ask and I'll see what I have in the archives.
Le durachd,

Eddy

Vinnie,
Interesting snap. Where did you get it? I think that it's Garscube Rd heading up to the the Round Toll.
If you look at the the white band to the left of the pic, it could be the shoe shop in the first pic. The building to the right of the three figures could be Dearie's pub. What do you think?
Heather, I've added a wee snap of New City Rd for you. Is this the building you lived in?

Le durachd,
Eddy

Hi ,

The first photo before the one of the round toll I believe is looking down garscube road towards the round toll round about Oakbank Terrace.
The one after the round toll is Griffins pub behind that used to be the Pheonix\ Civic picturehouse.

The first pic is of the Round Toll and the shoe shop with the white band is High Walk. Just above that is Jimmy Hempseed's pawnshop which I worked in for a few years. Loved that job. McFaulds bakery pic is on New City Road on the same side as the school was.
