Thankyou so much for conformation on the Granary`s previous name of Sammy Dow`s. We left Shawlands in 1973 for Australia. Having been back in 2004 and 2008, no one would admit to the pub ever being Sammy Dow`s, or having any other name from the Granary. I lived on the top floor in Deanston Dr. too (sympathize with lugging shopping up those stairs.) No. 86 (1966 - 1971) Many happy memories of Shawlands, The church, Waverley, Shawlands hotel, Doune Castle, Newlands hotel, etc
Is that the Waverley chip shop in Minard Road that you're talking about, my mother worked in there in the early seventies, the owners were Diamond and Amelia Andrucci if i remember right. Really nice people, i see it's away now, laundrette if i'm right??
