Good afternoon from Namibia, My father Jack Alexander was born up the Comet Close 210 Kelvinhaugh Street in 1941 and is currently sitting right here next to me exploring this fantastic site.

His memories of that era and place:

I remember a David Crooks who lived in Dock Street.

Went to Kelvinhaugh School till 1954. Then Woodside, Left the haugh around 1963 and moved to the Kingsway....

Lived next door to Danny and Hughie McGuire.... names I remember from those days.....

Davie Johnston, Jim Mattheson, Jim Ferguson, The McGee's, The Boyces...... to many to mention .....

The old chunkie boys...

Anyone remember my dad?

Wasn't at school there myself, but two close connections in the family taught there probably around the time your dad wa there. They always spoke of the place (never badly) so I think it was memorable for them. Spoke about it so much I feel I know it myself.
Sadly can't ask them now if if they remember your dad.

Both were female, not too many male primary teachers in these days, or at least not many I came across. Names were Matheson and Randall.

When I was an apprentice painter, I worked for the Corpy. I was sent to work at Kelvinhaugh Fire Station.
I used to get there by the ferry at Stag Street, Govan. (And that wisnae yisterdae - circa 1975?)
