laugh.gif Hi SJMAC!! I too attended Mosspark Primary School in the 1950's. But I don't think that I'm in your photo, however I think I might recognize some people. I left Mosspark Primary in 1961, when I was going on 12 and went to Albert Road for one year, then on to Bellahouston Academy.
Here's a photo taken at Mosspark, also in the fifties. Not sure what year. I'm in it. Let me know if you recognize anyone!!

G'day JimmyD, I'am not sure about a Frances Hamilton in the Mieklerigg Photo, but the other photo of Mosspark has some of the same kids,only a little older, and there is a Frances or Margaret Hamilton in the front row middle, can you tell me who you think might be the one you know in the first photo. Time has taken a lot of my memory, Jean says time has taken my brain, my hair, and her sanity. cool.gif

Let me know please.

Stuart.

Hi Tumchie, I left Mosspark School in 1956,so the kids in your photo are a little younger than me, sorry I don't recognize any of them.

Stuart.

Jannymac,you are in the right format, eg jpeg but maybe your photo is too big, it has to be less than 100, try that.

I am looking for a lost child...............me. I grew up in Springburn, Mollinsburn St. I attended Hydepark Primary School from about '63 to '68 and then attended Colston Secondary from '68 to '71. I then moved to the states with my Dad.

I'm looking for any old school classmate photos of either or both of those schools from those times. When my mum died all the photos were lost and I have only one picture from my childhood in Glasgow ( actually standing in Loch Lomand freezing my butt off ). I've seen multiple posts on here with several great images of school classes and have sifted through many of them. As vain as it may sound, I'm looking for me!

My last name is "Shelley", my sisters name is Lynn if anyone knows her drop me a line, her husband grew up on Berneray St, his last name is Thomson and attended the University of Strathclyde for Engineering. If anyone knows either of them, I'd appreciate anything about them as well, be a nice surprise to show them old pictures of times gone by.

Thanks.

Hi PC:
You could check out this website:

http://www.friendsreunited.co.uk/

- there are some photos if you go to the Colston link - the schools are listed alphabetically under Glasgow. There is a 1967/68 class photo at Colston but only one for 1950 at Hydepark. You may recognize the names from the class lists.

Good luck....thistle rolleyes.gif

If anyone's interested i am on Friends Reunited under Woodfarm High School and Robslee Primary - there is also a rather fetching picture of me from primary 1 - as my mum says " god knows what happened to me!"

Hi pshelley. welcome to the Glasgow boards. I went to Colston from 1968-1971. I lived in Auchinairn and went to knockburn primary, I knew quite a few Springburn people as I was born and raised there. Maybe we have mutual friends from those days. I was in class 2b then 3d before I left. Sorry but I don't have any school photo's from my Colston days.

Hi Jan, thanks for the note.
It was a bad time back then and I'm sorry I don't remember any names of anyone, kind of why I'm looking for pictures, mental block of that entire time of my life in Springburn.

Alcohol abuse by my mum created a kind of blank out for the time frame, now older and wiser and ready to deal with it, I'm trying to get some of that childhood time back to share with my kids before it's too late. Funny looking through ALL the posts here I found many pictures of things I recognize in my old area, like the Teachers bottling plant and Sighthill etc, so it's been educational.

My kids are having a field day with the old pictures of the tenements I grew up in. My oldest said "no way" Dad, you can't have lived in there, it looks like the 1920's, when I showed him the date's.........1960's he almost had a heart attack!! He asked how any one could live like that..............I told him I did and that's why I'm as strong today as I am and appreciate everything I've got..........'cause that's what I came from.........I keep telling him he's a softy !!!!!!!
