Came accross this site while looking for old pictures of Our Lady and st Margaret's school in Admiral street, especially the Huts where I went, and my children.
Four generations of my family came from kinking park, or Plantation as it was sometimes called.
I lived in 45 Eaglesam st, my father owned a shop calked Woodcraft at 76 Paisley road w, we moved to Pollok in the 50s, and I moved back to kinning park when I got married lived at 92 and 94 McLellan street, this was apparently the longest street without a break, and was spelt differently at both ends.
One end was spelt McLellan st the other Maclellan st.
Tried to find a picture of my Dads shop but so far can't find any, it was next to Bells the cleaners and Kirkaldy linoleum market, what a busy place it was then.
