Hi. I have just found this site when I typed in Comelypark Place. I lived there until I was 11. Comelypark Place was great, even if we did not have today's facilities. We lived at No. 7. There were four closes on our side and five on the other. It ran off of CP Street and had a wall at the end. One side of the Slatefield St houses looked onto it. I remember Jimmy Welsh the chimney sweep. He lived at, I think, No.8 CP Place. His niece Margaret Thomson was in my class at Campbellfield Primary and lived in number 10. We had a shop at each corner, Jenny's Dairy and Isa Gray's. Mrs. Parker also lived in No. 1and had a shop further down the street, and Frank Thomson's yard was on the opposite side of the street. My uncle used to take my cousin and me in to see the horses. Round the corner, on the Gallowgate, was our doctors (Dr. Yonace and Dr. Levy). We used to go up to Malvern Place and through a broken fence and have a picnic (probably just a biscuit and lemonade) in the spare railway ground, known locally as The Speedwell, or speedie, because of all the speedwell plants/weeds. At the top of the street, perhaps actually in Malvern Place, you had McManus's sawmill. Everyone used to get sawdust for their cat's tray from there. Our family still keep in touch with relatives of theirs..now in Canada. The Orient was our local cinema, and The Bungalow Cafe (also known as Frank's or Tessie's) for hot peas in winter and a McCallum ice cream in summer with my granny. Went to Tylefield Sunday School, although that was a puzzle as it was on the Gallowgate round the corner from Slatefield St. Tylefield was a good bit further down on the opposite side. What else? ....Whitevale Baths, the steamie, street concerts organised by two women in Comelypark Place (Peggy Sheriff and Norah Duffy) walking along the rounded wall at the end of the Place - or 'cuddying' if I didn't want to get a row from mother, granny, aunties ..we all lived in 'Comely' and jumping from the old wash-houses and bin shelters in the back courts. We sat on the roofs for hours, but I suppose we were lucky as the family could check on us from the windows.


Hi Patricia,
looks like we have the same memories of Comelypark street/place, never could find a photo of the stables at the end of the street. My granny stayed in the place also my best mates, I have posted a photo of the Gallowgate and the corner of Slatefield street is on the right hand side, the start of Comelypark st can be seen between the bus and tram.

Ben is it not Whitevale St on the right with Slatefield St between the tram and the bus. The tram tracks on the left would have ran down David St into the tram depot, then you have Rowchester St, Campbellfield St and Tylefield St (just before the chimney) on the left. Comelypark St would have been beyond the chimney on the tenement next to the bus.

Ally, Rowchester st had tram lines leading towards the depot


this is the corner of Whitevale st/Gallowgate



In my day i knew this pub as the Goldenvale, the photo must have been taken at the top of Rowchester st and shows Comelypark st between the bus and tram

Ben according to this map there were no tram tracks in Rowchester St (although there is a depot) which is why I'm suggesting that the photo is from Whitevale St looking west.
That being said, this map is from pre-1900 so it is possible tracks were laid in Rowchester St at a later date. It certainly shows a pub on the Whitevale St / Gallowgate corner so that would give precedence to the photo being from Slatefield St as you say

This map from 1893-4 shows it best. David St runs up the centre.



On the right is Crownpoint Depot & Works, (aka Bluevale Depot) of the Glasgow Tramway & Omnibus Co, their main manufacturing, repair & overhaul centre.
Across David St on the left (under construction on the map) is the Glasgow Corporation Tramway's Whitevale Depot. Although it's bays actually faced on to Rowchester Street, the next street west.


Almost forgot, here's a horse tram on David St. It was brought on to the works track fan and derailed to be photographed.

There must be dozens, if not hundreds of smaller streets which have disappeared or found themselves incorporated into other streets.

Risk St in Calton is also gone. It used to be between Bain St & Green St.
Only know about it as this was the site of one of Andrew Menzies horse bus stables.
a
Alston Lane was at the bottom of Claythorn st ran between Risk st and Claythorn st
