Bobby Howie – Knightswood
August 04, 2019 - 23:38

I noticed pictures of old Whiteinch and there was one taken in a back of 1170 Dumbarton Road. The closes there were known as "The gangway because each landing had a row of flats and the picture I seen next the stairway showed a woman's dress hanging over the railings and a tartan shirt. Was back in the fifties and those two items were my mother and father's items. Felt stunned seeing that and recalled them being hung up to dry.As a boy up to the age of 11 when we moved before the three gangway closes were demolished I loved Whiteinch to bits. Was in the 234rg Glasgow Life Boys at nearby Gordon park church but as moved when I finished I at 12 had to join a BB company nearer yy new home. In July 2018 walking along near Bellahouston park for an event a man stopped me and asked if my name was Bobby Howie and had I went to Whiteinch Primary!

I loved the trams (my mother had been a conductress during the war) and several years ago using a brilliant railway simulator programme I built the whole of the old Glasgow tramway and actually walked every former route at nearly 140 miles. I was also proud of my uncle Tom as he was a tram driver back then. Thought it a great place to live and a compact population and for all that there were slums in parts as I grew I had to watch my Whiteinch gradually diminish. My longest job was in the Education Dept and one of the longest "school boards" in the city! Also served as a JP in the District Court. Lived now in Knightswood for decades but every time I pass along Dumbarton Rd reminds e of a great place to live.

Her name was Lowrie McClymont and had 1 sister and two brothers, Ann, John and Thomas.

Looking for any info on the following: Mother and Baby Home, Atholl House, Partickhill Road, Glasgow - specifically any info from anyone who stayed there; worked there; or was born there - between 31 May 1952 and 21 July 1952. My own mum was born 31 May 1952, to birth mother called: Jessie Muirhead Deans Gardner (poss. address, at some point: 15 Margaret St, Whifflet, Coatbridge). Then, either just after, or just prior to, my mum's birth, she and Jessie (her birth mother) stayed in Atholl House - until my mum was officially adopted on 21 July 1952. Other info I have been able to source so far is: Jessie Gardner was a housemaid at time of pregnancy; she was born 24/06/1926; Jessie's parents were: George Gardner and Sarah Hassell; her paternal grandparents were: John Gardner and Jessie Muirhead; and her maternal grandparents were: John Hassell and Rebecca Adams. After giving birth on 31/05/1952, she gave my mum the name: Josephine Gardner. No biological father's details listed on any paperwork sourced up to now. Few other addresses listed within paperwork incl., 51 Cobden St, Glasgow; 253 Duke St, Glasgow; 3 In....(?) St, Lauriston. But, I've now found myself at a 'dead-end' reg. any other available registered info/details. My interest in this story is purely out of curiosity and my 'family tree' which has some, potentially, really interesting, but still v much, unknown, 'story-branches' on it...currently missing some info. And I would absolutely love to hear from anyone who may be able to fill in some of the 'blanks' to this part of my 'family tree'. x

The names of the 3 pupils who died on the way back from Iona were:

Sandra McAlpine
Patricia Cochrane
William Hughes

Sandra and Patricia went to Carntyne Primary before Smithy: Patricia was in my class (Mr. Strachan) and sat behind me, Sandra was in Miss Holly's class. William went to Haghill Primary.

I am sorry, but I cannot remember the name of the teacher accompanying the school trip who tragically lost his life, too.

Hope this helps you!
