Hi Tombro,cheers for gettiing back to me.We lived at the bottom end of Invercanny, round the corner from Camus Place and directly opposite Invercanny Place.I also attended the annexe at Airgold drive.That would be great if you could post those school pics.My older brother and sister James and Esther also went to St. Thomas Aquinas.

Catherine,

I vaguely remember a boy I went to school with who lived down that end of Invercanny Drive. I'm fairly sure his name was Gerald Shearer and, from memory, he had a few brothers and sisters too.

This pic is probably from 1958, and it is one of my Primary Five class up at the big school from that year.

Attached Image


I'm the we bugger second from the end on the bottom row and the guy to the left of me is Anthony Hazelton. I'm pretty sure the teacher's name was Miss Foyle and she was a cracker. I'm sure the Principal at the time was Daniel Hainey (sic) and the Assistant Principal was Mr Madill.

A few other names I can remember off-hand are Carole Corrigan, Theresa Docherty (both lived in Ardhu Place), Marcella McLaughlin and Hope Logue (both lived in Kinfauns Drive) in the back row: Gerard Manly, Robert Watt, Geraldine McEwen and Tomas Burns in the second row from the back; Phillip Duffy, Michael Connolly, Norman Yuill (from memory they all lived in Summerhill Road) Brenda Johnston, Kathleen Dunn and Steven McCann in the third row from the back and Colin Murray with Anthony and myself in the front row.

I think I've got those names right.

Enjoy Catherine, and I hope you might recognise a few of those names !

PS I can't really recognise Gerald Shearer from the photograph, so he could be that guy sitting next to me. After all, it was fifty years ago !

Cheers for the photo Tombro,I think you were maybe in the class ahead of me.I do recognise some of the names but none of them were in my class,You mentioned Gerard Shearing,well I can remember the shearing family vaguely,they lived on the opposite side of the road from us.There was quite a crowd of them too.Isn't it great reading all the chit chat from the Drum.I have some great memories of growing up there,sadly my memory is not what it was.It was a long time ago.I left there in 1968.

Catherine,

My family and I left there, bound for Australia, in December 1960 but I still have lots of fond memories of the five years I lived there.

A few more names I can throw at you, mostly from the Ardhu Place and Airgold Drive area are Alistair McColl, Joe McLellan, Dianne Drover, Neil Drover, the McLoughlin family who lived at 16 Airgold Drive, the Wiseman boys who lived at 19 Airgold Drive, Alex McKay, the Kirkwoods who lived in Airgold Place, Jim Bryden who lived there too, John and Gerard Docherty who lived at 18 Airgold Drive, the Millers who lived at 20 Airgold Drive and Dougie Stoddart who, I think, also lived at 18 Airgold Drive and Isobel and Janette Coral who lived across the landing from us at 17 Airgold Drive.

Memories are great things Catherine and I've been using GG, HG and UG to revive many of mine over the last few years !

Keep remembering,

Tombro rolleyes.gif

Hi, Just came across this while looking for photos to give a friend on her 50th and enjoyed the memories. Like most I was from a family who were parachuted into the Drum from the East End and born at 319 Kinfauns. Went to Peel Glen and Summerhill Primaries then onto Waverley. Had a great upbringing in the scheme with good friends and vivid experiences of exploring the bluebell woods, making dens, the excitement when the Arndale was built and the stand offs between the schools which were hilarious demonstrations of cardboard gangsters in the making. Enjoyed reading the posts and will definately visit the site again for a nosy. Maiden name Dunbar by the way

In my introduction post I said that I lived in 34 Halgreen ave
from 1964 -1970
We arrived there with 2 sons & a daughter
They attended Drumry school when they were of age
Neil,Iain & lynn
Lynn used to attend the Halgreen Nursery
Then Came along 2 other Sons ,Donald & Andrew
I worked as an Electrician for British Rail, so going to and from Glasgow was cheap
It was a long walk to the rail station more especially in the rain
we lived on the top flat & had a great panoramic view of the whole
area ,the boys used to play football just across the street in the sports field , could keep an eye on the pram with the baby in it at the close mouth
In those days your children were safe because everyone looked after each other,
A crowed of us would go to the Bankies club on a Saturday when we could get a baby sitter [Nancy Gault ]
We had a great bunch of friends all around the same age as us so we had a great social life .
The Donaldsons,Mc Kays, Courtneys to name a few
Alas I changed Jobs & moved with the family to Grangemouth.
Well thats another memory to tell on another post

Regards to All
