I am sure you will know much more than me Stephen.

I believe someone on here mentioned your taxi driver friend and was interested in encouraging him to sign up as he if a font of knowledge and was able to recall long lost stories of events in Glasgow.

If there is any particular area you are interested in Stephen just ask on here there are people from all over who have either photos or stories of most of Glasgow.

If you ever come across any old photos we would be interested to see them posted on here.

Keep posting

What a great site. Considines used to be a petrol station!?!? My Mum moved into Carnwadric Housing Scheme in 1932!? (page 13, bottom of Kiloran Street opposite the park gates which hadn"t been built yet) and recognised the house in Rouken Glen road immediately. (probably because it is across the road from the old 38/38A terminus.)Further studies of the maps will no doubt finally satisfy my curiosity about the old "Puggy" line that ran from Kennishead Road area to Thornliebank/Spiersbridge industrial area.

The tram line is mentioned and there is a link to a simulator of the route along Nitshill Road down through Thornliebank.

Carnwadric must have a story to tell. Does anyone know it's history?

Stephen

I did some family history research and your granddad went to Southampton from Ireland before he met your Gran.

Hi Folks , been a while since I have posted anything. Found some old
pictures of the South Nitshill Gala days, from various parts of the scheme.
Although a few from Whitacres road where I stayed, hope you recognise some faces

Nice photos bissy
What year would that be ? Looks a lot later than when i live there.
I lived there from 1959 till 82 but my mum & Da stayed on till the early 90's.

Great photos Bissy
Hows this for a Past Present?  The 30+ years difference in camera angle is rather uncanny

Thanks Alex
I though it would be a bit after my time, though all the scenes are instantly recognizable to me.

Hi All


Strange i just noticed the distinct geographical boundary between the old & new scheme, That never occurred to me when all the buildings looked the same. The woods were just an area in the middle of Southie.

One thing i was wondering. When all the construction is complete, are there any plans to change the name of this area? Or will it stay as is ?
