In 1942, I was born at 67 Ballindalloch Drive, Dennistoun, along with several other cousins around that era. My granny - Isabella Walker, lived there for many years prior to this and up until she died in 1975. She had three daughters, Lizzie (my mother), Isa, Annie and Charlotte, and three sons, Robert, Freddy and George. Charlotte died young in 1947 after giving birth to her first child, a daughter called Anne. Anne was brought up by my granny, helped out by our mam and the other aunties. Robert and Rene (his wife) lived at No.67 with granny from the early sixties until the 80's (I think). Sadly, Freddy and George are the only ones of my granny's children still alive
In the photograph, taken outside No.67, Granny Walker is second on the right at the front. Robert is second from the left at the back, Freddy is 4th from the left and Annie is on the right holding one of my cousins (George). Maybe someone remembers the Walkers and it would be great to hear from them.
During and just after WW2, our mam and her three sisters all went back to Granny Walker's to give birth to their babies. My family were living at that time in Maryhill. My sisters and I visited Granny up until we left Glasgow to emigrate to New Zealand between 1959 and 1963. I have memories of a wee burn near Ballindalloch Drive where we used to play, also going for walks to Alexandra Park. It's great to have this topic - I have posted messages before about Maryhill but this is the first about Dennistoun.
All the best from down under.
