Hi Lindamac,
You'll be pleased to no Bellrock crescent has been re-born. The local housing association have built some lovely new homes there as well as on Bellrock street,Startpoint street and surrounding streets. They are lovely homes but sadley not all of the residents appreciate them.

The memories! I used to go out with a boy who lived in Crowlin Crescent (I think). His name was Dave McWilliams. This was way back in the early 70s. Not sure what happened to him. I often wonder what happened to my exes.

Theres no need to get tetchy there Mhoira Scott nor to get insulted since after all you are imortalised in GG forever as someone whom loved a good man & there is never any shame in trying to get a loved one back especialy if you are as you say "smitten' lets not get all shirty about the past & just recall these things with a wee laugh .I think you are way too serious & big wow you recalled Minters name good on ya!Grow up & get over it it is just some silly chitchat over small things of the past ,I laughed at the past not specifically at you but hey if the shoe fits I suppose. rolleyes.gif

Started my bricklaying apprenticeship 1952 top end of Bellrock Street ( @ Watertower). Lived, Fastnet Street, across from the the field, we played football every night and Saturdays and Sundays. That would be from about 1949. Till the school got built years later . Worked on the houseing sites Ruchazie, Gartamloch and would walk along the canal bank to them, that was the top of the Sugarolly Mountains .Where you walked towards where Easterhouse is now , there were quite a lot of small holdings wher you could purchase eggs.
