Is there nobody out there from Nitshill not even me but when they drew in the pavements of Priesthill at 5.30 the cafes and the chip shop in made Nitshill the place to be. Down Shilton, Linnhead or Glenmuir on to Cleeves Road through the brickie on to Peat Road and the night life was there. Vic's Cafe at the corner with the lovely Tom Faccenda and Umberto then the Chippy the Royal Oak and later on the Cavendish and Lynach's the bookies unfortunatly I was too young for the last three. Gordon McDowell and his pal Johnnie O'Donnell were probably the main attraction and their Ma's had no problem with us hanging about.

I used to go to Nitshill a lot when I lived in Priesthill.Do you remember the Railway Inn? The Levern water and Royal oak have been demolished,it's only the Cavendish left.The petrol station is also gone.Do you remember the Mini market I think it was Jewish people that owned it.It was a dear shop but you could get groceries 3 hours after everything else was shut.

I lived in 91 Pinmore St. Nitshill and also in 51 Lunderston Drive, Priesthill in 1960's and went to St Bernards School. then St. Bellarmines I remember going on to the railway crossing/bridge to wait for trains to come under and we'd get all the soot on us. I also remember when the first diesels came out. We used to go picnics on the 'big field' too. Can any one else remember this?

I lived in 138 Hartstone Road, Househillwood before it changed to Nitshill. Left there in July 1963 to migrate to Australia with my parents and my brother Ian Hopkins. I am Ellen Hopkins.

Lets face it, anyone who lived in Priesthill or Househillwood had to frequent Nitshill. It was the only place you could get a pint. The Househill Tavern, The Royal Oak, The cavendish, The Levern Water (Lavvy Watter) Hotel, The Railway Inn, The Volunteer Arms and on the outskirts - The Niaroo! Priesthill - Dry! Pollok - Dry! So the next stop was either the Parkway at Mosspark or The Trade Winds Hotel at Arden.

Mumsiedoc I may have the wrong lad but did your brother have a pet jackdaw? My Grannie lived at 126 Hartstone Road and I think you went to Australia at the same time as my Auntie Betty and Uncle Peter O'Brien.

Hi Marydee, Yes you have the right lad. We did have a pet jackdaw. I know the O'Brien lads. Haven't seen them for years. Their Mum and Dad were members of our local theatre group along with me and my dad. My dad was the musical director. My brother is on face book. Look up John Hopkins or Ian Hopkins. I am also on face book under Ellen McLeod.

My Great Aunt, Mary Howden, owned the Railway Inn. I am very sad to see that it is no longer there. I spent three months there - summer of 1968. She sold it shortly after that to one of the Breweries and retired to Troon.
