I am looking for a Steven Street which had the code C4 some time in the 1950's I cannot find it on a modern map. Can anyone help as to its location, demolition[?] and if possible, a picture of it.
my name is JackRoberts. I lived with my grandmother at 30 Steven Street from 1942 until 1948.
Steven Sreet at the New city rd end had and abandoned churdh and a shoe shop. Halfway up the street from the shoe shop was a lane with was the goods entry to Wood & Selbys and other businesses in St Georges road. In the 1st close to the right lived the Sheddon family. In the Close to the left of the lane lived Mrs McNulty on the grouhd floor, immediately above livrd John Grant. On the next floor livrd the Lindsays. Next was a foirn of cottage with an american family. the next close had the wilson family and the final close lived the Ogilvies. Robin Ogilvie fell thru the glass roof of Wood and Selby and seriuosly lacerated his legs. This happened on thr day wibston churchill visited Glasgow, On the opposite corner was The West End Bar and in the close next to it lived the Italian family who owned the fish bar in Shamrock Strrt. Continuing along the strret , in the next close live Jackie McCaudland who was actually engkish. In next close on the ground floor lived Mrs Concxcher who looked out for kids in street and now number 30 where I lived. My grandmother·s name was Farrell,so I was cllrd Jackie Farrell. Up the close lived Jaclie Broen and finally in the next dlose lived Jackie Bain who went to Alan Glenns. in the close in New City Road was a close where we had the HOT PIPES. We were either gers fans or the Jags fans.
I visited the area in 2001. St Georges X was still there and yes where Steven Street once was is now a cul de sac. New City Road still existe although ShamrockStreet carries the bulk of traffic- I hope after all this time you return to your first request and find this info of use. Incidently I noe live in Spain
