Hi all. The wee hut in the park was one of the first summer play shemes. Mrs Lafferty was in charge. Lots of rounders played as I remember.

All good memories folks, this is a good wee site. I lived in Lunderston Dr and remember the adventure playground with the wee social hut for playing table tennis, softball, rounders and football, all overseen by coaches in the summer. Who remembers gettin permits for the swimming at Craigy during the summer too? And dinner tickets for free meals in the summer holidays. I went to St Roberts, Houshillmuir, St Ignatius and Bellarmine. We'd go to shool camps at Fraserburgh and Dornoch, living in the classrooms of their Academies which were transformed into dormitories. I had too many pals to mention in those days, guys like John Connor, Alex MacNeill, Gary Cummins among lots of others.

Hi there, I was born in Old Pollok (Carnock Road) and lived there until I was 24. Went to school in Langton Road and then to Crookston Castle (all gone now!) I remember such a lot. My uncle, aunt and family lived in Househillwood (Haughburn Road) in the days before the whole area became known as Greater Pollok which I don't like. The individual names were so much better. My pal lived in Cornalee Road. There weren't many kids in Carnock Road but I do remember sisters Dorothy and Marjorie Smith. Also Paul who lived at the bottom of the road.

I LIved in 2 Bargarren road in the late 60.s and early 70,s . I worked in the news agents when it was Strangs for a few years . I cant seem to find Bargarren on any map is it still there does anyone know. Its near the 50 terminus just off Cathill.

Hi, Your spelling it wrong it's Bargaran Road and its Calfhill. Hopefully you should find it on Google Maps now.

Used to visit Pollock frequently in my childhood in the late 50's / early 60's. My dad's parents lived there with his brothers and sisters. It seemed an awful long way away at the time as we used to travel over from Scotstoun by bus, underground and walking. We used to walk down from Paisley Road West to Mosspark Station and cross the White Cart Water. My grandparent's lived in Ladymuir Crescent. I used to stay over quite a lot and remember the shops opposite their house where I would often go over for loaves of bread, rolls or milk, or sweets. Remember playing around Linthaugh Road, Dormanside Road, Mieklerigg Crescent, and Templeland Road, and the occassional visit down to Crookston Castle if I could talk my dad's brothers into taking me there. Also remember the long dark crisp winter walks back to Paisley Road West to get the bus back to the City Centre. biggrin.gif

Our family moved to Hapland Road from Possilpark in 1948 to a THREE BEDROOM SEMI-DETACHED..! And in front of the house was a huge triangle of grass to play on AND a big, big field alongside the house. And the houses at the other side of Braidcraft Road? - they were 100 yards away at least..! Never had or seen so much space except in a public park. Magic!
Oh, and we (as kids) used to walk to Corkerhill engine sheds and wander aboot the engines and talk with the drivers and firemen. Lordy, that wouldn't be allowed these days!

smile.gif I was born 12 Bridgend Road went to Gowanbank & Craigbank I just remember playing outsideand NOT being "Feart" I rembember Families - Motherwell, Drummonds, Toland, McGrath, Boyle, MacClusker and many more. When I visit Pollok today I always wonder who I am standing beside or walking along the road with " Someone from my childhood, how brilliant would that be" I wonder about the guy who used to take photos of us kids (I always loved that) your Mammy wouldn't have much money but she always bought the photo. As for the rag man. Well, that was just great put a smile on my face everytime Give him yur brother old jumper and you got a sweetie. God, these days they want a wi game and they're still not happy. When I lived in Pollok I always wanted to live in a posh bit of Glasgow. However, as I've travelled I never once said I lived anywhere but good auld Pollok and proud of it. We might have been poor but that guy with the camera wasn't a perv and we could play till it was time to go in for a bath which wasn't a bath it was the kitchen sink. Great eh! the bathroom was to bloomin' cold. God bless Glasgow and the people of Pollok.
