Apprentice Baker by Ben.Allison36, on Flickr

Robinsons Rolls bakery was situated at the corner of St Vincent Street and Pitt Street in an old mansion house, now long gone. My first wage was 4-2 shillings for five and half day week....lol (circa 1965-66)

Ben we used to jump the dykes behind Craigpark and Onlsow drives all the time especially the rounded brown fired clay tops ... In Barrowfield we used to jump across the bin sheds as they had sloping precast concrete roofs and you had to be sure you were making it or it was the spiked fence and rats for yi  

Yi had to make your own amusement back then and it sometimes bothers me my kids had a better childhood than mine though not nearly half as rich in experiences and life lessons But hey its what we try to do was provide a better life for them than wee had.

I was always worried about my kids not being streetwise a vital lesson we learned early in life in the Gallowgate.

It was the first rule of survival in the early days but still not anywhere near as bad as Gareth tried to make out.
My daughter was hit with a car at her first day of High school and i have always put it down to a lack of road sense as she lives in a quiet Cul-de-sac almost all of her life ... With all the Sunblest motors and Coal trucks bouncing around Camlachie then the tipper trucks etc when they remodelled Barrowfield in the late 70's it was a thing you either learned fast or not at all. That said Schools taught the green cross code religiously to try and minimise fatalities and the do not go with strangers protected us from the social workers
