In the 70's and 80's we made our own entertainment.

Regarding Benny's Bar, there was a Licensed grocer next door to the Pub and when you took any Bottle in they would put it into a Big Barrel and get your cheap wine, they would then put it through a filter and then put it back in your own Bottle. Changed days, the good old days.

Turns out my foster mother was born in the flat above the old dairy on Roseberry Street - the corner of these tenements. Thank you to everyone who supplied photos etc. this was much appreciated!

My grandparents and my mum were from the Gorbals, so I spent a few hours the other day wandering around their old stomping ground trying to see what traces of the old Gorbals are still there. I've written it up here if you are interested.
