I was born at 63 Pine Street in 1949. There was a shop at the next close but it was run by a woman.

That whole area was cleared and I think may have been changed again. But I am sure Norrie will be along in a minute to confirm what Pine Street is like now.

It isn't an area I know well but if you look at the Gorbals photos Click Here you may find one

Hi Alex, no Pine st any more, Pine Place is all I can find
I am sure there are old photos from the planning dept on here showing Pine st, I can email one if there is

Street was knocked down and high rise flats built in that area. I loved that area as I only had to cross the road to go to school , Oatlands , although the other half of the school was about a hundred yards away. My sister lived in Moffat Street and one of my other sisters lived in Caledonia Rd. around the corner as well as my auntie. There was also a swing park in the square up the street and a church. We were moved out, in 57' I think it was, to Easterhouse and had to catch the train back every day to go to school until we were transferred to London Rd. school. There used to be a convoy of buses leaving Easterhouse everyday taking kids to school all over Glasgow as they built the houses but no facilities apart from a few small parades of shops. I lived in Easterhouse Rd. at the corner with Ervie St. until 67'. I don't know how much of that area still exists now.
