Cumberland Lane ?

Started doing my Family tree and have found my 3 x great grandfather John Little after leaving Ireland settled in 53 Cumberland Lane and were there in 1861 census . Cant seem to place Cumberland Lane but i know theres a Cumberland Street with plenty pics of that . The family also lived at 244 Pollokshaws Road , again loads of pics of the higher numbers but none of the lower numbers closer to Gorbals Sreet, any help will be greatly appreciated .
