Avril, I was being a bit tongue in cheek with my reply. My apologies if it sounded confrontational smile.gif

I think my parents were the last to get a telly a fridge....and the list ...goes on but sure as hell made me apprectiate such luxuries later in lfe...Our kids havnt lived! I often wonder at how my mother manager to cook, clean, feed five of us on a daily basis. I lived in Egilsay Terrace and went to local shops for penny frozen bruised fruit. I did go out with a guy Alex Calder who lived near Liddlesdale shops and went to St Augustine annex.

Grew up in Vallay Street, No. 23, opposite the park from 1962 to 1975.

Any other old Vallay Streeters out there?



Noticed recent post from Possilboy regarding living in Carbeth St, Possilpark.

I was born and lived my first 3 years at 85 Carbeth St before my parents moved to the Milton.

Does anybody remember "Big Scotty", the polis man that used to patrol the Milton?

Ask him if he was the local "Polis" in the 70's around Milton?

He may be in his late 60's or early 70's.

... I did go out with a guy Alex Calder who lived near Liddlesdale shops and went to St Augustine annex.

In my first job my mentor was a guy called Alex Calder. He belonged to the Glasgow Wheelers (Cycle Club). Would it be too much of a coincidence that this was the same Alex Calder (ca. '59)

Hi bds1958 ..Big Scotty did serve in the police force around the Milton/Lambhill/Cadder area but I do not know the years.. Big Scotty I reckon looking at him would be around the 60/70 year old mark ,his first name is Jim, I know his second name, but I think it would be wrong to put it on without his permission..Cheers Flim

Agree about his name. You could always PM me and I could give you my name. Not that I was in much trouble but there was one wee incident that still raises a smile when I think about it. He probably wouldn't remember me.

I remember him patrolling Vallay Street, where I lived, during my "formative years"; 1965 - 1975.

Thanks for the dialogue.

I moved to Liddesdale Rd 1964 from Grove St Cowcaddens. Went to St Augustines Primary and Scondary but my sister and brothers went to St Joe's. I have brilliant memories of Milton. Moved away in 1984 when thing started going downhilll. Everyone knew Big Scotty, though dont know anyone who had a good word to say about him. Always knew if he was in the scheme on Monday, someone would be lifted by Friday usually for something stupid.
I've not been up for a couple of months now and still have friends there but its not the place it used to be by a long shot.
Cheers Mary
ps. Think everyone knows Big Scottys real name and where he stayed.

biggrin.gif We moved from Barloch St to Liddesdale Squ in 1953. We moved in while the shops underneath still only had bare light bulbs. We got the telly for the Coronation, and had a big hoose party wi aw the neighbours! Went to Chirnsyde Primary, then High Possil. Ref: Alex Calder - there was a Calder family in one of the corner closes in the square. Christine was in my class all through school, and her Mammy was a dinner lady at Chirnsyde. (in they days you only got the job if you were a widow). Jings I could be here aw night rolleyes.gif
