Hi,

The white van in the centre of the photo is more or less directly outside your house. We lived about 40 yards further south. I think the photo of the kids was taken just to the rear of that building.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for the reply. I think you are correct. I think we lived in number 62 Pollock street. I can probably find it somewhere on a censusbut you jogged my memory.
The area was not too bad in the 1930's, not a slum. i do not remember any rats, but there were mice. I was a small child so do not remember much other than walking to school at the foot of the Rd.


I think both of you lived on the other side of Pollok st to where the white van is as the side the van is on was odd numbers.

Hi again,

I have spoken to my mother and she has pointed out that 98 pollock street was north of Scotland street school.

Scotland street school is in the centre bottom of the photo.  You would have lived about half way up the left hand block of tenaments going up from the school.

We lived in the top right hand corner of the same block of houses.  The church with the spire was on the opposite side of the road from our house.

The photo of the children shows our house (no 98) in the right hand corner.

I remember very clearly getting strapped and whipped at that school.

Hopes this helps.

The whole of Pollok Street was north of Scotland Street School and I lived on the 3rd block on the right going upwards from the school (number 35) also poster Isamck lived at number 1 Pollok Street on the same block same side, so that`s numbers 1 and 35 on right hand side of the street in that that pic.

Robert I think you maybe getting the street numbers mixed up the white van is outside the odd numbered closes, I stayed in no.1 next to the church which was no 3, the van looks like it is outside no61 which was next to Agnes's dairy, i'm sure my friend Grace Thompson lived at no 62 which was between Houston Street and Ardgowan Street. like Taymil I don't remember any rats in our back and compared to a lot of othr parts of Glasgow I wouldn't class it as a slum, I lived there until late 1968 and also went to Scotland Street school.  I have many happy memories of Pollok Street.

Was in this area yesterday from Cessnock station through to the Gorbals, and amazed to find that absolutely none of my mum's family addresses remain... 200 years gone.

I lived at No1 Pollock Street from 1960 to 1967 and went to Scotland Street school. I was just a child then (born 60). My parents were Alex and Vera Smith.
We went to Maxwell Church and I do remember my parents being quite active there.
I remember the swing park and a few things about the area but sadly not much and I don't have any pics though I believe my sister might have an old Primary 1 pic from 1965.
