291 Greenhead St. Unless the photo is unintentionally distorted, that wall is bulging rather badly. Maybe these fine tenements had to come down, but what I canít understand is why the site is still vacant, with its pleasant outlook across the river to Richmond Park.




 That's one helluva bulge in that wall. Dunno why the site hasn't been built on
since Isn't the Argyle railway line right underneath there? Might've been causing
the subsidence?

Streapadair What a mine of informative photographs you have turned out to be.
I am sure myself and everyone on here fully apprieciates the time taken scanning and uploading these wonderful collections must take you.
Please keep them coming some memories returned some buildings i never knew existed and some empty spaces filled.
Thank you so much for sharing.

Yet another astounding and informative collection that you've shared with us. Get along to a drinks night and the drams are on me.

Hope you don't mind me taking a closer look and dissecting it to pull out some of the marvellous details.

This photo of the corner Dairy at Greenhead Street stood out for many reasons firstly it was the stone balustrade adorning the roof, was there ever many that had such a fine detail.
Secondly the general streetscape showing the small details that have now long vanished.



Lets take a closer look at a typical Glasgow cornershop dairy. Check out the old Player's No.6 sign and the yellow roll top bin minus it's black topped springy lid. The old school Walls Ice cream sign and ads for Solripe soft drinks.

I'd love to know what the poster 'Give a little for those who gave a lot' was all about?



Classic GPO Commer van with roof mounted ladder rack and flashing (amber) light alongside a bog standard Mk2 Ford Escort van.



Last but not least a couple of Xmas tree's with tinsel and baubles in the parlour windows.

Very plausible as it doesn't look like the Earl Haig fund or anything to do with blood donation. At first glance I thought it was Christian Aid Week.

I contacted the guy who runs this site:
http://realcaltontongs.freewebspace.com/

& he states that "The guy on the far right is none other than Bertie Alphonsus Clark, aka the Gallagate American, he lived above the Saracens Head pub at 211 Gallagate"


Here is a later photo of Mr. Clark:


He also said that he will ask around to put names to the other faces.

Looking at this detail, is the guy a lamplighter, were they still around in the 70's? The ladder is far too small to be a window cleaners.

More likely an electrician from Glasgow Corporation Lighting Dept. checking the closes for blown light bulbs. Note the Players No.6 hangin' out his mouth.

I simply deduced that he was swayed by the bold Player's No.6 advertisement hanging outside the shop he had just passed in nearby Greenhead Street. See pic above for heavy cigarette evidence.

Conversely it may have been a Lyons Maid mini milk ice lolly hangin' from his mouth which he purchased from aforementioned shop in defiance of the large Walls Ice cream advert that confronted him on the exterior wall as he entered the Dairy.
Bear in mind that the photo was taken in January thus sensibly ruling out a random purchase from the freezer chest and heavily lends weight to the purchase of fags.

Remember Holmes were talking 1974 not 2009... With the all the evidence gathered so far I reckon he was heavily into Players No.6  who changed lightbulbs up closes in tenements up the east end although this is purely conjecture.

My dad was a postie in the mid 1970's and remembers going into some closes that were still lit by gas.

Fackin hell Fjord are you and the Chief Inspector the same person... I read that in total amazement Hang the bassa Guilty as charged.....
AlanM

I remember a wee old man who turned on and off the close lights in Partick, carried a ladder like that and a "bag o' bulbs" to replace the duds.

Around the end of the 70's or start of the 80's the council started replacing the guys with photosensors to automatically turn the lights on and off. Meant that the wee man could cover more closes as he was just checking the bulbs and doing it less frequently.


Now they replace all the lamps and starters every time they check, whether their blown or not

brilliant thread folks,i think the shop poster was defo a poppy appeal given the time of year the photo was taken.

Hi streapadair, you have surpassed yourself, thanks for posting all those great photos of various areas in the east end, some gaps will be able to be filled thanks to you.

Thanks again for the great show.

Thanks for the replies, an excellent thread.

I never imagined I'd ever get a name for any of the guys at the bonfire, amazing stuff HH. Interesting link too.

Cybers, I'm pretty sure your identification is spot on, fits perfectly with my proceeding in an easterly direction from Camlachie St. Was the school Camlachie Primary? X marks the spot I think I must have taken the photo from -


I'm taking careful note of these offers, Professor Fjord, and will redeem them some day.

Sorry folks I have already posted the same message on the actual photo board could someone remove it for me.

Glad you enjoyed them, Riverside Boy (and Hamski, gallowgategal, others too). I'm very unlikely to find any more east end stuff (or City or Gorbals or Townhead), archive cleaned right out, but there's some southwest and northwest pictures still up my sleeve, fullness of time and all that.

Gallowgate building



The building was in the Gallowgate between Society Street and Invernairn Street and directly facing Janefield Cemetery. The building had only one close entry to the front on the far right the second close could only be entered from the entry in the back court. The swing park is long gone and the building on the right was the offices of Twaddle the Plumbers before being taken over by Hunter & Clark whose yards now cover the whole area.

I can confirm it is wee Bertie who as you say lived above the Sarry. Many a night we had a laugh with him in the old pub when he used to amuse us with his 'you dirty rat' impressions.
HollowHorn

Did you meet any of the other guys in the photo?
Riverside Boy

The last of the summer wine...

Sadly not that I could remember. Wee Bertie was just one of those guys who was never 'oot yer face in the Sarry'...but a laugh all the same. Mind you Big Angus would try and move him on if he thought he was bothering you, Nevertheless we were all young and mad with it after playing fitba and slipping glasses of 'white tornado' into each others pints of 'chammy' and got absolutely rat arsed into the bargain. Wee Berie used to do a Jimmy Cagney routine but we used to say 'ur you suppossed to be George Raft'. A great wee character and I have to say it was a pleasure to meet him...mind you we called him the 'Gallowgate Yankee'.
streapadair

Superb, RB, thanks. I'll put your info in the caption, if that's ok.

You've put it between Society and Invernairn. Norrie's been in touch with a woman who remembers playing on the swings, and she puts it between Holywell St and the cemetery gates. Any chance you could pinpoint the block on this map, there's a couple of vacant bits where a swingpark could be.



Bertie Alphonsus sounds like a great character, wish I'd spent a bit more time with him.
Riverside Boy

Gallowgate swingpark...

Difficult to pinpoint it on the map shown...I'll have to look a 1960's map to be certain. I know exactly where it was if I was to go down there today and it was definitely on the north side of the Gallowgate between Society Street and Invernairn Street. I used to play in it regularly when visiting my relatives in 1313 Gallowgate which was further along he Gallowgate directly facing Barrs,
Riverside Boy

Looking at it again I would say it is where the first question mark is...if you look closely you will seen on the map how a close is marked in the building next to it and no close entry marked on the close next to it which would back up what I said about there being only one close entry in the two close building.
Riverside Boy



Taken from roughly the same spot...note the buildings at the back which are now the offices of Hunter & Clark looking east towards the Cross at Parkhead.



Looking west down the Gallowgate.
Riverside Boy

According to my wee pal Peter Mortimer a Camlachie historian the information he has is as follows...in regards to the map shown.

Left to right

Tenements 1111 to 1113 Gallowgate

1141 Gallowgate = Hartshead Works (McCrae & Drew's) hair works

Johnnie Ionta barbers shop on the Gallowgate near the corner of Soho st.

Yer i had the old red board too .... All you could smell in the shop was capstan and hair oil....

Yes I agree with that, but it's funny to think a simple everyday thing like a barbers shop can mean so much to a lot of people and that say's a lot about the Ionta brothers.

Riverside Boy

Went into his shop a couple of times in the late 1970's for a haircut and was offered the statutory cigarette but declined as I was a non-smoker. His son or grand-son I believe has a shop in Hyndland.

Maison Di Paul on the London Road was a barbers I remember well which also had two brothers in charge. There was also on near the bottom of Frazer Street and London Road called Charlie's...his son also a barber or to use the more term hairdresser was in a band called Studio Six. Across the road there was also another barbers with another set of barber brothers I am sure it was called Doran's.

Hello Mods, I've noticed a handful of photos on the East thread seem to have disappeared (1 in p.1, 1 p.3, 2 p.4, 1 p.5), replaced by a broken frame symbol. I don't recall deleting anything from either Photobucket or SmugMug (I forget which one they're linked to) so I don't know why they've gone. Haven't checked the other threads yet to see if there are any more disparus.

If I could access the thread temporarily I could replace them, and at the same time add another couple that have turned up, a fairly scruffy one of the Gallowgate at Bellgrove St and another version of the group shot of Tony Drummond and the guys.

Incidentally I've been hoping that Tony's granddaughter (previous post) would come back on the site as I believe she's got some interesting photos and stories about him, e.g. Tony Drummond and Cassius Clay!

Thanks, Merlot and jpd, glad you enjoyed them.

jpd - I remember there was a fifth man in the group, but he didn't want to be photographed so I didn't. He was a good bit younger than the other 4, don't know if this was your Uncle Frank.
