Looks like there's very few people on this site from the old Barnes Rd area, I used to live in the prefabs at the top of the street #8 in the mid 40's to the mid 50's.
Does any body know what happened to Jimmy, John or Pat Inscn, Mickey Quinn or Pat Gallagher they all lived at the top of Barnes Rd in the first close of the tenements.

Hello,

I'm hoping someone maybe able to help me track down class pictures from Ruckhill Primary school in Ruckhill Glasgow between 1971 - 1978. My primary 6 & 7 teachers name was Miss Bruce. Who went onto marry the local Church Minister.

I'm an old pupil and would dearly love to see what I looked like back then. I don't have any pictures and neither do any of my family members. So if anyone could help, you would be making this the best Christmas ever?

Thanks in advance

Elizabeth

The Pat Gallagher mentioned with the Insches and Quinns lived at 3 Barnes Road (below the Insches) and was best pals with Billy Hughes (3 Barnes Rd) and Jim McLeod at no. 9 (above McArthurs).
I also remember Jones living in the prefabs as I grew up there until I joined the RAF in 1967.

I'm Frank Jones we lived in the prefabs (#8) I remember a Billy Hughes & Jim McLeod vaguely, we left Barnes Rd in the mid 1950's but the Pat Gallagher is the same person that you are talking about also little Mickey Quinn.
I also served in the RAF for my national service around 1958-61

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.

You and I are talking about the same place but at different times. We used to call the tiangular spare ground between Emerson St & Barnes Rd " THE SQUARE" and the fields over the railway tracks was "THE DAISY" I also remember the chippie on Bilsland Drive at the bridge.
Fond memories of those times, nice to read your post Campsie, Now living in Canada will be 73 in a couple of months, all the best.

The school was St Bernadettes and I started school there as well as my two brothers Jim and Tham McKeown. The headmistress was Mrs Bradley.
We lived at 201 Bilsland Drive and then moved to 78 Whitworth Street next to the swing park. Does anyone remember the shops across from the park? Staffords (two old sisters owned it). We always bought from the "penny tray" frozen jubillees etc ... Leos chippy.... The dairy where "wee Agnes" worked and the chemist and post office and a baby wear shop. I know a few names mentioned on here and it brngs back memories.
