I have been reading with interest to the discussion under the heading of Albert Secondary School lead by John Stewart and some of his classmates of 1952 to 1957. The discussion seems to have ended in 2008 and I fear that John and many of the others may no longer be with us, but if you are of that vintage I would love to share your memories. I was also in that class 2BF and 3BF in those years and I recognise many of the names mentioned.

I wonder if there is anybody who remembers St Mungos academy 1951/1954.
I started prep school m3 at stmarys in the carlton , then on to kennedy st , ending up at Duke st , I remember a few teachers , mr Love . mr Smith, a maths teacher who had a party trick of standing his belt upright oh his desk ,but never seen him use it once ..
lorretto for the sports , Bro Conrad headmaster who used to stand out in the street and belt the latecomers, also the mucky cafe where we ate those pies and peas ..
my primary school was St Teresas in Possilpark.

Great site.

I'm writing this here as the Feedback Link is broken.

Pity that some street which were in Yoker, Renfrewshire, and which were re-named when north of the Clyde was taken over by Glasgow, have been shown as having been taken into Clydebank (Dunbartonshire). Likewise some Yoker Streets are shown, incorrectly, as having been in Scotstoun.

Hi I am trying to trace James (Jim) McEwan he once lived at 106 Claythorn Street, Calton. He had a brother Adam and a sister Isabelle. I would be very grateful for any information on Jim or any other family members. Many thanks.

I know this is a long shot, but I am still trying to find my sister, Sheila Anderson, born in Homelands on 8 July 1948 to Elizabeth Russell Anderson. Sheila was formally adopted a year later by a couple who lived in Springburn Road. I don't know their surname, but Sheila's name was changed to Moira. He adoptive father had worked for North British Railways but worked as an insurance clerk at the time of her adoption. Sheila/Moira got married in Drumchapel in 1970 and divorced a couple of years later. Not much to go on, I know, but someone must have gone to school with her, worked with her or knew her family.

RE the independence debate. It gives me so much pleasure to watch the panicking Scottish "Better Together" MPs crying as they watch the Westminster and Euro Parliament gravy train leave the station. It is not about what is better for you, me or Scotland, their only concern is themselves and their careers. Without Westminster and the EU most of them will be on the dole.

Hello Geoff I suspect you have never been made redundant. They are facing redundancy by actions instigated by their own countryman. An action not far removed by those Scots who fought with the Duke of Cumberland at Culloden.

Wondering if any Former Pupils of St Alphonsus at the Gallowgate are on the site. I was lucky enough to finish P7 in the last year it was open (1979). Stephen F.

Hello Joan,

Just read your posting, to-day is 8/19/14. I now live in Canada but, when I lived in Perth Australia, in the 60's. I met a couple called Cassidy, Bill, sorry his wife's name escapes me at the present. However what I can tell you is they lived in the Scarborough Area, WA. Maybe you can check out the phone book. Just a thought you never know could be a long lost relative. Being you live in Perth W.A. thought I would mention it, I lived in Perth for 3 years I am sure it is all changed now have never been back since I left, good luck, Pat in Canada.

Hello Joan,

So sorry I just sent you a message but I got the Country wrong, it was the posting underneath your Name that was from Perth WA. I visited Kirkcady this summer enjoyed my visit to the U.K. and the weather was beautiful hope you can maybe find some of your relatives. My aunt's used to live in Houston St and Avon St also, in the 50's though.
