I took my driving test round there ....
In 1987 jeezo that seems like such a long time ago now.
Totally fecked up the emergency stop when a wee dug saved my bacon and ran out between two cars...


Still knock about here sometimes through my job though usually only as the direct route to Barrhead from Shawlands.

The clock i keep meaning to stop at and have a closer look but always seem to be later than i should be.

There is a plaque in the road just infront of that clock but is usually covered by a car. Some wee old lady told me about it one day and its basically part of an old town hall (I think thats what she said)

Hi All
I remember going to the baths.
Spending our bus fare and walking back to South Nitshill.
Cutting across the Kennishead rd before the new road at Darnley was put in.

Hi Stu
Its the townhouse tower. I read it was a much bigger building but only the tower was saved.

Hi All
You know how i like photo's of me    
Here's one of me & my big sis on the steps of our tenement in Greenview st.
Taken around 1959/60  must have been just before we got moved out.
I have looked at this photo 100's of times but never noticed the ghost on the right, till i scanned it to put it here.

Oahhhhh!

Great photo Jock  

The ghost looks like it is a woman's arm with a short sleeve coat or am I seeing something else

I was born in Tracy Street in 1959 but don't remember it as I was only a baby when they moved us out to Nitshill. I love hearing the old stories of the Shaws and my Aunt Betty lived all her adult life in Netherauldhouse Road.

There's not much left of the old Shaws nowadays apart from a few red sandstone tenements and the Burgh Hall. It had a bad reputation over the last 20 years as one of Glasgow's worse schemes and it's hoped the demolition of the high rise flats will improve the area. Shawbrige Street was not an area to walk through at night as witness to the many sites festooned by football scarfs indicating someone had been murdered there. Hopefully the new low rise housing will will make the area better to live in but that begs the question of what happens to the knuckledraggers and neds once their houses have been demolished.
