My Granny Curran lived at 35 Hamhilltonhill Road in the low down house to the left . I remember the house well. We used to go up Possil Road till we reached the stairs, then walked up them straight into the road where Gran lived.

Can anyone help me with some information. I am researching my family tree on my mothers side. Her name is Gayda Margaret (nee BOND). She used to live at 56 Hamiltonhill Steps, Possil Park with her grandfather William Bond. They were quite a large family William had eight children, but he brought my mum up. One of Williams daughters was called Margaret Phylis Bond and she would be my grandmother, she was a dancer and i believe danced in Edinburgh before leaving for LOndon.

Can anyone help me, if so please email me at audreystead@aol.com

Many thanks

A lot of the old tenements in Hammy hill are fast disappearing.
This is a view of the shops.
