laugh.gif I was born at 171, Wellshot Road, Shettleston, opposite the library,where I lived until I married at the age of 22 when I moved to Rutherglen, then to Sevenoaks , Kent, Oban, Argyll , Port Charlotte, Islay and then back to the eastend to Springboig. My closeness to the Library gave me a love of books that has lasted all my life and I consider Tollcross Park as my childhood/teenage playground and garden. I went to Wellshot Primary and then to Eastbank Academy. I love the eastend but given a choice I have to say I would go back to Oban which has everything that I could want in a material sense. That is so long as my house has a garden which having been brought up in a tenement, is now my first love as a an activity. I still walk the dog in Tollcross park and although there have been a lot of changes each visit evokes memories of childhood and long lost friends. Where are you now David Jenkins, Alex Branch John Dewar?rolleyes.gif

Whether it was a long time ago, a short time ago, you're still there, you miss it, etc. Please tell the boards whereabouts in Glasgow you came from originally and maybe even a wee bit about the place.

Hi Alison ,welcome to these boards .I was born in Partick and lived my life there till in 1967 came to Canada with my husband and weans .I've got nieces in Glasgow but like you I don't know where .I've met enough friends on these boards to more than compensate for lost family who probably wouldn't know me from Adam laugh.gif .Join in pet ,go into Betty's and a real welcome will wait you there .Mind you ,you might have to take your turn at cleaning the stairs .Cheers Jakka

Born at 10 Gayfield St, off Scotia St which ran between Shamrock St and New City Road. Went to St Joseph's North Woodside Rd also St Cuthberts when we moved to Panmure St for a year. Then finished up at Garnethill Convent of Mercy. Married and lived at 263 Maryhill Rd for six years. Also moved to Canada in 1967 with my husband and two little girls (Charlie came out first and the children and I stayed with my parents in the Wynford for a couple of months) - but we came to the west coast - Vancouver. And, oh, do I remember taking my turn at 'daein' the sterrs"
We lived on the third floor and, as many mothers had to, bumped the pram down the close then ran upstairs to get the baby. Mmmm, I guess that's why I was so skinny then : )
Started a family tree and was so frustrated by the 'brick walls' that my grown up family sent me to Glasgow and Ireland for my retirement present on my 65th. My daughter came with me (to make sure I behaved myself) Everything was gone! The street where I was born; also Panmure St., the schools I attended; St Joseph's Church; the picture halls - Scotia St and Shamrock St where we used to roller skate. But we did get to visit with family which was priceless. And at least Maryhill Road was still there. Now I open Google Earth to see the many changes.
Take care, Ellen

Paulines47
This is the 1st time that I've looked at this thread.....I've just read 35 pages & now have square eyes blink.gif ......only 15 more ta go.

As some of you know, I'm not from Glasgow but Dad was, & I'd thought I would see familiar streets/roads mentioned within this thread but didn't. I have looked at Virtual Mitchell & even on there I found Ann Street but not much else.

What I'd be interested to know is, if I give you some of the names where my ancestors lived, would anyone enlighten me as to what district(s) they were in.....just so's I can get an idea of where they lived in relation to each other??? (i.e. where you all mention Maryhill, Possil, etc.,)

Charles St, Ann St, McAlpine St, Wellington St, Regent St, Ingleston St, Baker St, Sir Michael St, Drumfrochar Rd, Banneckburn St, Watt St, Dunlop St, William St, Belville St, Upper Crescent & Killearn St.

Thanks in advance for any info. smile.gif

A nice picture of Ann Street looking down towards the junction of Garscube Road and Stewart Street.The area on the right is Phoenix Park ,a popular spot for all.I checked old maps and the first street looking down Ann Street is Clyde Street and then Dobbies Loan.It is absolutely incredible how that particular area has changed beyond all recognition.I find it hard to pick out and surviving landmarks.Maybe someone can help.
