That looks fairly recent.

Perhaps too late for MrsSnuffy now, but this image shows the view from Admiral Street:

Alex MacPhee,
You wrote long ago, but in researching my family I cannot believe the coincidence.
My Grandfathers family live at 19 Blackburn Street in Govan since the late 1800's to the mid 40's.
My great grandmother was Sarah Young. My grandfather was Mungo McAllister. I believe there was a Hettie, Katie, Sadie, Georgie, Jimmy, Archie and Alec. My grandfather moved to Canada with my mom and aunt and Nana in the mid 50's and we have lost a large majority of oor tree. DO you happen to have a pic of 19 Blackburn.
If anyone else know the family, we are looking to piece a few things together,
Cheers,
BEth

I lived at 212 Seaward street 1968 - early 70s, I have great memories of that time, 'wee' mary's shop, the hub of the street. I went to Our Lady & St Margarets School, had a girlfriend called Rosemary whom I still have fond memories of.
I have tried to locate anyone from Seawaed Street (top end opposite the whisky bond, as it was then.) It seems like everyone from that era never existed, ive not been able to find anyone, but what a great and unforgettable part of my life, Kinning park ... brilliant!

Beth,

I don't know if you're still registered, and can see this, but I've only just noticed your post, as I've not been able to log in to this forum for some time.

Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures of 19 Blackburn St, or Blackburn St at all. I've been searching for a long time, but with no success yet.

I can't remember all the names in number 19, but I do remember the names Boyd, Friel, Crawford, and Brown, if that's of any help.

Alex

I lived at 248 The Paisley Rd. and my G'parents lived at 66 the Paisley Rd. W. I had aunts and uncles living in Plantation St., McLellan St. Howwood (?) St. Snowden St. etc. Cousins went to Lambhill St., now turned into flats I believe) I went to Scotland St., only saved by being turned into a Museum. I lot of my Mum and Dad's older relatives stayed in and all around the area.

Some of the names that may ring sound familiar: Barbour, Kelt, Musgrove, Currie, Carlton, Bannerman,Hughes, Rennie, Thompson and many more.


Hi G.B. just reading K.P. posts. The Bannerman family are my relatives. Their mother was sister of my mother. smile.gif

I'm a highly experienced novice so don't know if this will reach Steve Brown's post. Did you have lots of brothers and I think 3 wee sisters? And Andy Hamilton did you go out with one of the Campbell girls? I think her name was Linda. If you're the very same Andy you had a moped bike? If you're not the same Andy sorry for my mistakes.

I was told an old cine film exists of K P, but I don't know if it's true and I've never come across it . Apparently an old resident took the film from around the early 50's to K P's demise. If anyone has heard of this film or could pass on a copy I'd be very grateful as I've not been able to find it.

I lived at Paisley Rd Toll, was the Barbour you mentioned a lad called Graham from Plantation St. Also you mentioned Currie was that Willie Currie who went to Lorne St and Lambhill St.schools.

Saw that you were looking for old photos of KP, ive just found what looks to be a good site, in the process of going through it myself ... "urbanglasgow.co.uk"(various interesting links to other sites).
Noticed a few good photos of KP, theres a good one of Admiral Street (circa 1973) you can clearly see Jim Baxters pub, I worked in the butchers shop that was there, "Robert Edwards" the newsagents shop that was next to the butchers shop was owned Robert Edwards brother, you can see the two steps you had to climb to enter the shop, not sure when these shops closed but it was a crackin place to work and live, I lived in Seaward Street, hope this is useful to you.
Regards
Steve.


I've tried for years to find old pics of Mair St Plantation, where my husband was born..in the Thomson household. I've found Zilch!! Also trying to find an old pic of St Margarets Chapel on Stanley St. I've googled the street, but am not sure what I'm seeing. What is the smaller bldg beside the school..the one that's half demolished? Is St Margarets chapel gone??
To think I use to work in Gray Dunns in the mid 60's...wish I'd taken a few snaps then!!! Ruth

All Kinning Parkers,

Just been round the place, sad to see all the places that have been destroyed with the M8 but the old Kinning Park is still there.... long may it be so....
