Belated thanks to Streap.      but I'm new here. This is the first time I've seen old Plantation Street in a photo even it was just the church. Anymore photos anyone? I lived there age 1-7 1947/53. I think I remember there was a cop shop in Plantation Street. Other memories I went to nearby Salvation Army sunday school - don't recall the street. My first school Lorne Street Primary. Also remember my father telling Willie Woodburn owned a newsagents on Paisley Road West. Anybody throw any light on that?

I wrote wee bit aboot oor Plantation single end (without rose tinted specs)
in Glasgow From the Past. I'm luvn this forum.

just been looking at the photos the photo of the angel building remember this used to be a tv rental shop possibly in the seventies? also remember there used to be a blue dr who type police box there as well shame to see its been taken away these things are icons and should be give a listed status
my granny and granpa(mums mum and dad) used to live above the thomsons piano shop then they moved to 23 shields road one stair up i think then when my granny started getting arthritis they moved down to number 17 on the ground floor left and lived there for the rest of their days but my granny moved in with my uncle and auntie(grannies son) shortly after my granpa died in 76 and the house was closed up my granny died in 78 and my mums brother died in 2003 and my auntie in 2007 and sadly my mum in 2009 but at least i have my memories of glasgow and chatting with people on this forum
although i was born in fife and class myself as a fifer part of me is still glaswegian and i love the comedy of billy connoly and glasgow comedians and comedy series set in glasgow such as still game and chewing the fat and city lights

Researcher.
I think the TV rental shop may have been Granada.

hi
yes you are right about the flying scot ive got two a 57 fitted with campag mechs and set up for touring and a 59 flying scot which is totally original
im a member of the veteran cycle club and we collect classic bicycles and a lot of us have scots
i only got the 57 scot last year its a 24 inch frame and believe not many of this size were made
both of them are continental models with rack on the back to support the saddlebag.
i used the scot on quite a number of runs last year and its a beautiful bike to ride the rolls royce of bicycles i call them

Parlane`s at the corner used to do a pick-up for washing overalls for the surrounding industries ie: british steel etc, next door at butchers was where we got our rolls, next bar one is where yours truly got his haircut as a laddie and as an incentive you got a lollipop if you were good further up was a newsagents and the two-tone shop on the corner was a bookies T.V. Shields i think it was called, in the middle of that second block was the Co-op (remember ma stamps my mum would say) and the end of the second block was a pub (The Killearn) I think.
The other side of the road was mostly demolished at that time as you can see by the shadows, the half shadow was a bookies, then a gap then tenements then a pub on its own then a large expanse of spare ground all the way to Houston St. It seems like yesterday I done all that, so thanks for the memories Streapadair

my granny stayed on shields road and remember the shops on wallace grove from memory there was parlanes then a man who made tablet he had six gas cookers on the go and used to pour the tablet into big metal trays then the butchers then a newsagents though in the photo it looks as if it was closed when the photo was taken then the barbers the barber was a local councilor but cant recall his name my granpa used to get his haircut there next up was a fish and chip shop that was always closed i never saw it open then on the corner was a grocers on the other corner as you say was tv shields the bookies there was a scruffy dog that used to sit outside it then next up was granny clarks then the co-op which were closed by then i think then martins the newsagents
on the other side was the open space i can vaguely recall that there was a pawn brokers on the corner before the buildings were demilished as remember the three brass balls, cant remember the name of the pub though then vals dairy i never knew what his name was val someone i suppose he sold the shop and moved to ayr i think, my granpa used to get the messages there every day and used to tell val when i was coming to stay for the week during the summer or easter holidays with my mum
val always used to call me roger the dodger i used to go for the messages every morning when i stayed at my grannies for a week.
there was a family called millar who lived in the tennement between the bookies and the school and they were in the paper for not washing the close think this was the late sixties or early seventies it may have also been on stv news as well.
when were the buildings that created the open space demolished i think tenements around there were damaged during the storms in 1967 so it might have been then

Hi The Researcher do you remember Albert Sharp, worked in Ratterys
My father bought a Scot from him, 1959 ? had one of the  first Campags in Glasgow on it, I still have it in my garage
I had a second hand Scot, chrome frame, goodness knows how old it was , I was probably 14, it had no gears and my father painted it Green, I was pleased as punch to have a Scot
When I went to work he bought me a brand new Claud Butler, campag gears, loved that bike, went on to Freddie Grubb, Mercian, Puegot and now have a Dawes Mountain bike, have not swung a leg over it in years and even then I used it to get to work, best thing because of the state of the roads.

In between geting the Claiud Butler I had the use of my fathers Scot as a and when I wanted, he sold it after a while
I was a member of Lomond Roads and Suburban as teenager
Bye for now, norrie
