I lived in Machrie Road, just off C'milk Drive.

Remember the wee shops well, my parents still live in Castlemilk in one of the new houses as their house was demolished.

I was in the same class as Andy Ashcroft and Carol Johnston at Braeside Primary. I also knew a Welsh and Waters, but can't recall their first names, gettin' auld laugh.gif

I was just going thru some of these posts.... and although theyre quite old now.... I know you guys are all still regulars here.

The Welshs in Machrie Drive were my lot.... I think it was Jimmy that lived there. His parents lived Camden St - but had died by '61. If anyone can remember a bit, let me know please as I'm coming up to Glasgow next week to do some research at the Mitchell. Relations are the Goffs, the Halligans and of course The Welsh's. Mostly from the Milk arrea. My nana Rose worked aat the Marlboro hotel? Glen Hotel and the icerink tea shop at crossmoor?(croftmoor?)
My grandad Bill worked at the Britannia? pub for a few pints after a hard day grafting at the shipyards:-)
Any excuse not to buy a pint eh??
Hope everybody is well, you certainly have fun.
Regards smile.gif

Amazing to hear of all the talk from you ladies about the shoaps at Machrie . I remember when the two main shops were in competition with each other. You had the Co-op and next to it Cochranes. They were like wee supermarkets. Saunders was a funny wee shop. Run by a wee Jewish couple they sold all sorts of stuff. It was as if the shop had no Theme. They had a boy who got onto Hughie Greens talent show in the sixties..........talk of the steamie seeng him on the telly. It was kind of unreal in those days to see someone you knew on the box.
The big newsagents at the end was always the best as it sold the quality sweets. Chemist at the other end with the obligatory weighing machine outside........which you only ever put a penny in if you were flush from a bung and then thought ..bugger I.could have bought two caramels with that.The chip shop opened later and it was a Godsend. Freezing winters meant chips to warm you up when you had the spare. My mum and her pal did the tatties during the day. I have lots more stories etc like you all.

Cheers Alex

hiya all. i remember coming to "the milk" from the gallowgate when i was about 5. we used to stay in the sarry heid buildings, where the wifies would watch the weans playing while sitting on sentry duty at each end of the back to keep anybody that didni belang there oot. watching all the drunks coming oot the sarry heid and going ower tae the barras fur the jigging. anyway we moved upto castlemilk and landed in downcraig road number 39. i went to netherton primary, old mrs kirkland the headie, the old witch. we used to cut through the woods at the side of st maggys to cross the carmunnock rd to get to school, if you were brave enough to not get caught by old skelly eyes. (the bogey man) i remember when they were building the "new houses" at ardencraig crescent, that was a big playground for the weans, and some adults. after downcraig we went to glenacre drive, then onto glenwood secondary, where they succeeded in making me even mare stupider, still it kept them happy. dogging it to go swimming helped take the edge off it but, in the front gate and oot the back gate and up the ressys fur a swim, get a number 14 bus ootside the school up tae the terminus cut through the farm to carmunnock and up the lane towards east kilbride and into the reserviors for s swim . great fun. another trip fur swimming was waterfoot, that was like the canterbury tales when we done that trip. andersons hole in busby was quite good annaw. we left the milk and moved to e.k., then i moved doon to london where ive been for 28 years.

Auchenshuggle i'm intrigued, i'd love to know who you are. I lived at 39 Downcraig Rd in the 60's and early 70's and i can remember almost all the people up the close. On the top floor was Sandra and Lynne cummings and opposite was Alan,Evelyn and Stephen Smith. Next floor down was more Smiths, Gordon, Ian and twins Christine and Jeanette. Opp them was (i think) an old man McGinty who chopped sticks on the landing for firewood. Next down was Alan, Ann and Carole McKechnie and opp them was (i think) Robert Hart,and on the ground floor was Alan and Brian McClune and opp them for a time was the more twins, Steven and Anthony Brannan. I went to Netherton and i remember Miss Kirkland, if she was teaching today she'd get done for child abuse She was terrifying. I don't remember her being head while i was there though , our headie was Mr Nichol.

Good to have a read of this thread and the memories of Castlemilk.
I remember the shops at Machrie well too, you had to go to Saunders shop to get a school tie.
I was brought up in Tormusk Road, went to Braeside then Glenwood.
I had friends from Machrie Joy Black lived in the T close right across the road from the shops, also was friends with karoline Gibson she was from machrie Drive, still in touch with both of them.
Lynn Flemming lived above me and I have also managed to get in touch with her too.
My older brother John (Wilkie) was two years above me at school.
I have three sisters Janette, Grace and Norma, two brothers Charles and John anyone remember us? smile.gif

Hi Ian I'm laughing at the cooking chocolate!! I remember you . I remember your sisters better as they were more my age . Yes Kirkland was a right old witch, seriously scary to a five yr old. She would have been maybe 50 at the time but to me she was more like 80. No teacher today would be allowed to terrorise the kids the way she did, and that was without using corporal punishment. I can also remember going to Waterfoot, a big gang of us, with a bottle of ginger and some jam pieces. Also went to school the same route as you thru the woods and then thru the little gap in the bushes and running down to cross Carmunnock Road. I remember playing in the grounds of Maggie Mary's, sledging down the big hill next to the woods, going up the Cathkin Braes in the summer hols when there was different shows on everyday for the kids. Do you remember thr old guy chopping sticks on the landing? I think he was called McGinty. I went to Glenwood too, for a year, then we moved away from Glasgow and i have a very good memory from my time there but, try as i might, i can't remember another school called the Grange. Maybe my memory's playing tricks.

Hi I don't know Sandra's dads name but her mum was called Cathy. Sandra did have reddish hair and i remember her nickname was Lulu as she looked like her. There was also Lynn a few years younger than Sandra and i think there was an older daughter who was married and away from home when i lived there. I could be wrong on that tho.

Thanks bluezcat, your right, I recollect it was Cathy, her man's name was Jimmy. Sandra was a lovely kid, obviously Lynn would have been born after my visit. They came from Kidston Street, Jimmy was a friend of my then husband ,now deceased. Sounds like Jimmy and Cathy have passed on as the children were still residing together.
Can remember Cathy being over the moon withy her new house. How the years slip by! smile.gif

Auchenshuggle i'm intrigued, i'd love to know who you are. I lived at 39 Downcraig Rd in the 60's and early 70's and i can remember almost all the people up the close. On the top floor was Sandra and Lynne cummings and opposite was Alan,Evelyn and Stephen Smith. Next floor down was more Smiths, Gordon, Ian and twins Christine and Jeanette. Opp them was (i think) an old man McGinty who chopped sticks on the landing for firewood. Next down was Alan, Ann and Carole McKechnie and opp them was (i think) Robert Hart,and on the ground floor was Alan and Brian McClune and opp them for a time was the more twins, Steven and Anthony Brannan. I went to Netherton and i remember Miss Kirkland, if she was teaching today she'd get done for child abuse She was terrifying. I don't remember her being head while i was there though , our headie was Mr Nichol.

    Joyce, Stephen is my wee brother and i love him really, lol. I felt a bit mean after posting that but he saw the funny side. I sent him the link for Glasgow Guide, it's a great site. I went to Glenwood too, but i really can't remember the Grange at all, even though it was there all the time i was living in Castlemilk. It just doesn't ring any bells. Favourite teacher at Glenwood was (Art) Mr Spence.

    Hi again Joyce, Irene Wilson was in some of my classes at Glenwood tho we weren't best of pals. I went to Netherton and moved up to Glenwood with Alison Brown,Shirley Barrett, Margaret Burgess, Georgette Wilson (any relative ?), Twins Jeanette and Christine Smith, Gina Seath/Seith and at Glenwood i remember Carol Falkner, Myra Moody Jackie Dunbar, Anne Hamilton and Mary Sturgeon. Just a few names i recall. I don't remember your brother though, come to think of it i can't remember many of the boy's names apart from primary school. biggrin.gif

    I'm 50 Joyce, older than my parents were when i was at school. The years have flown by. I palled around with Mary at Glenwood though we lost touch when i moved. I'd not been back to Glasgow for a few years when i was on a train to Coventry and got talking to one of the stewards who was Glaswegian. Turns out he was Mary's brother and still lived in Castlemilk. It's a small world for sure smile.gif

    I can't remember any of those names for definite, though Karoline Gibson rings a bell. Lol. Let's see....do we know anyone in common? Carole Henderson, Moira Anderson, Jim Diamond, Brian Kinnear, Anne Connelly, Catherine Hamilton, John Hamilton, June McWade, Tommy Gemmell, Malcolm McDonald, Charles Barclay, Danny Cusack, Marie and Ian Sherriff , James Chambers, George Bonner, George Smith, Senga Morton, John Ewing, David Findlay, Brian McCluskey, Irene Graham. These are not all from Glenwood, some of them went to St Maggies and other schools but i've forgotten more folk than i can remember. When friends reunited first started i would get e mails from old school pals who obviously knew me, but i didnt have a clue who they were. Lol.

    Penny, Jeanette was tall with dark hair and her twin Christine was shorter and fairer. Jeanette was best pals with Gina from primary school.I don't recall anyone called Julie but i do remember Geraldine. I lost touch with them all when we moved from Castlemilk in '72 but a few years later i bumped into Jeanette and Gina in St Enoch's Sq. Auchenshuggle (Ian) who posts here is Jeanette's brother. I was in touch with her thru FR about 5 or 6 yrs ago but i don't think she's still listed.
