I have to admit, they do get it right sometimes - likewise with 'the Bridge' centre.

Sandaig Primary have a collection of photos of the Barlanark area of Easterhouse. Unfortunately there is no dates for any of these photos.
http://www.sandaigprimary.co.uk/barlanark/around_barlanark/

That was my first primary school, Barlanark Primary. I went there from 2004-2006. A new school, Our Lady of Peace is now on the site. I can't seem to find any photos of my 2nd primary school, Provanhall Primary which I went to from 2006-2009. That has also since been demolished.

Site of a school in Abbeycraig Road -- my partner who is Easterhouse born and bred doesn't know -- any ideas?





This was the site of St Colette's Primary school which was built in 1973 and destroyed by fire in the mid 1980's,the stairs you can see led down to the football pitch,there are at least 3 buildings of pretty much the exact same design still in school use,one in Greenfield,one in Summerston and one in Darnley
Site of Commonhead Primary School

Hi all,just came across this thread and really enjoyed looking at the images of the scheme.i was reared in auchingill road in the 60s and 70s then moved to lochend road in the eighties. i've been out of the country since 95 so it's kinda nice to see pictures of where i was brought up   i know it got a bad reputation but there was still a lot of good hard working people came from easterhouse. i havent been back since 2012 when my maw passed away and i'm sure there have been more changes since. once again thanks for the wee walk doon memory lane.

Absolutely Johnie. I still have family that live there and I lived at Lochdochart Road in 2010, before moving to Duke Street.

thanks beano and hawick for your reply's. it might not have been the most desirable place to be raised but i wouldn't change it for the world. i have a lot of good memories (and some not so good) of growing up there but thankfully the good ones far outnumber the bad.i've met a few glaswegians here since i moved and i've never hidden the fact that i'm proud as punch to come from easterhouse and always will be.

I used to go my holidays to Easterhouse in the 70's, My auntie lived in Commonhead Place and I loved going there for a couple of weeks during the  summer holidays. I went to the swimming baths just about every day walked there and back - great memories

Think I may have already posted this in another thread but it fits here too. This is Andy Scott's Phoenix at the corner of Aberdalgie Road and Easterhouse Road, it is meant to symbolise the regeneration of the area

Moved to Banton Place about 1956. Roads and pavements weren't finished so when it rained it was like a mudtrack. Eventually buses arrived with the corporation bus terminus, think it was either 22 or the 41 in Wardie Place and the Eastern Scottish to Parkhead's terminus at the top of Banton Place. Before that we had to walk down to Edinburgh Rd at Barlanark to get a bus.
Not the first time in Winter the SMT buses would slide down the hill to the bottom of Banton Place with a recovery truck having to pull them back up.
There was an old army camp cleared of all buildings but still had the concrete ramps and underground shelters located between Banton Place and the canal . Eventually cleared and Ware Road houses built there.
On the other side of the canal on top of the hill were Kildermorie Road is there was an ordinance survey point giving map locations.

Between Stepford Road and Edinburgh Road East Hallhill Road road ran to Swinton. Notice that it's gone too.
Where the sports pitches are there was a big puddle almost a pond, always clear fresh water with oxygen? bubbles constantly rising through the water.
When we moved there there weren't any schools so we were bussed to our old schools with the pick up point at Langbar Crescent /Wellhouse Road.
There was a garage on Edinburgh Road next to Wellhouse Road, big sign on it said Smellies but everyone called it Smileys, Got sold on later and the new owner replaced the sign with Smileys.
