all my family and me are from ruchill, some of them worked in the hospital. my great granny (auld granny) was the very first tennent in emerson street, in the old tenements, and the last (i think) before they knocked them down. i lived in 1 barnes road (varanda houses). my dads family all came from 14 arnold street (mclintock) and my mums family all came from 719 bisland drive (the drive). ruchill is a great place and went through a wee bad patch, but now look at it, its lovely. does anyone remember the bull factory and the tennis courts? or simpsons shop?

hi. lived in ruchill myself for many years. Interested in the railways in the ruchill and surrounding areas. Am intersted in particular seeing any photos of the old ruchill railway goods yard which was located in an area bounded by ruchill street and shuna street - closed in mid 60's and used certainly up until 80s as a storage area for empty whiskey barrels. Have looked without success for any photos and would be grateful if any members who have any would post them.

I came to live in Ruchill around 1957/58 we lived in a street that had a big green int at the very he front like a triangle at the narrow end there were prefab houses. I cant remember the street name but later moved into Bilsland Dr. just around on the left. Does anyone know the Boll family Mrs Boll was know as Ma Boll she had seven daughters, at home were Betty, Edna Carol and Jean and Evelyn who went to work in America sadly now not with us.
I remember a Billy Currie, Bobby Watson who had a sister Brenda? and Sally Horton, and John Boyle, Franna McMillan, Ownie McCann.

I have some really bad memories but thankfully to the Boll family I have very good ones to.

We kids used to play over the fields on the other side of the railway tracks. I remember the fish and chip shop just before the railway bridge.

I also remember going to the Carrs Keg at Charing X does anyone remember it.

The place that was a Triangle shape was known as the "Square" and it was bounded by Arnold Street, Emerson Street and Barnes Road.
The prefabs were at the bottom of Barnes Rd and Emerson St.
Occupants when I was there were:-
Harvey
Tyrrell
Gough
Burt
(next one I can't remember)
then the last was Hoskins.
I lived at 3 Barnes Rd. and so did Insch, Haley, Quinn, Craig, McLaughlin and us Hughes's.
I also remember a lot of people from there including the McLintocks. McKennas, Cruikshanks, Bryans, Curries, McArthurs, Lyons.........etc etc.
