Stratson,

My grandmother, Margaret Watson lived downstairs from Lila, at 19 Batson Street and my brother used to play with her Grandson Greg. Remember her fondly, we stayed in Govanhill Street.

I remember your Grandmother, also Alex her grandson, where in G/hill street were you?
yes Lila lived in my father's house, we lost Lila in 1981, Greg was killed 1999 aged 30, at least Lila was gone and did not have to live through his death, my niece Marilyn, his Mum, died of a broken heart xmas 2006, her husband passed away 2012. Lila's husband survived until November 2012 aged 87.
Trust you have traced your other relatives.

3. Calder cinema - 302, Calder Street - Opened 25.4.32 by Harry Winocour (W Regent) Arch. Cowieson's. s. 1,250. Sold, 1954, to Green's. Cl. 1967. Bingo until 1972. Dem. 1981.

Saw my first "unaccompanied by adult" film at the Calder around 1964/65. It was "The Long Ships" starring Richard Widmark and Sydney Poitier. The Calder looks really shabby in that photo. I don't know if you are aware but some time after it closed as a cinema, it was used as a church. Our Lady of Consolation in Inglefield street burnt down and they used the Calder as a temporary church while the new one in Inglefield street was rebuilt.

That's my old house, the flat directly above the Halal meat place. That shop used to be "Le petit unique" cafe in my day. Nice to see the old supports for the trolley bus cables between the first and second floors are still there.

I was born at number 11 Seath Street,in my grannies house, in 1958. She was called Martha Hendry and my grandpa was called Andrew Hendry. My grannie died in the 90's. We lived there for a while when my mum and dad split up, in the late 60's. I went to Holycross for a little while, don't know how long for, my memory is not that great. I can remember the Mcquilters, who lived across the road,and the eldest daughter was my friend at the time. We moved to England,but used to visit when ever we could. We are Billy, Jackie, Liz, Andrew and Deenna Milligan. Does anybody remember us?

11 Seath Street bottom flat is where my mum was brought up by my gran Bella McWilliams. My mum Isa and her sister Ina and older brother Peter all stayed. I often stayed there and actually went to Victoria Primary School for a few years. Her family McWilliams all stayed locally.

I do remember her wee pal Mattie Hendry upstairs and I think I played about with her grandson Andy ? I was born 1960 so that will give you idea of timescales.

Brought up with my sister in 56 Boyd Street, have fond memories of Calder Street Primary School, then Queens Park.
I wore my Govanhill upbringing with pride........." Snob end of the Gorbals" lol
Sad, very sad to see what's happened..who to blame, surely not just time. The Evening Times You Tube thingy, mentioned unbridled immigration and unscrupulous landlords.........

Thomas Watson

Is there anyone who can help me with my search for any relatives of World War II casualty Thomas Watson, 40yrs old, son of Robert and Elizabeth Watson, of Glasgow; husband of Margaret Watson. of Anniesland, Glasgow.

He died november 21, 1944 and is buried in Maasbree cemetery, The Netherlands.

Any directions where to look or whom to contact are very welcome.

Thank you very much.

My mother was born at 37 Carfin street in August 1935. Her surname was Armstrong but I think the person who lived in the house was called Reid. Can anybody out here tell me anything about this area.
