Hello folks,
I was born in Stobhill hospital in 1945. I lived with my Granny MacDonald in Auckland Street and went to Saracen street primary. I left the area in 1956 and went overseas where my Dad was working. Does anybody know where I might get any photos of the school or classes from that time? Our teacher was Miss Templeton, and she was about 140, but a great teacher regardless. There was another called Mrs Birrel but she was labelled as Miss Bism! She used to throw the blackboard duster as her means of dealing with minor matters that bothered her.

I am trying to trace Jessie Marrow who lived at 25 Linnhead Drive Priesthill. I have a photo of my half sister Joan Whyte who immigrated to Australia with our gran in the late 60s. Jessie's details are written on the back of the photo.

Ultimately trading to trace any relatives of my mother Francis McCaskill Whyte who married Bill Buddie lived in Govan area.

Many thanks

I was born in 40 Aboyne Streetr (Teucharhll) 1942 then when approx 10 we moved to 7 SKENE RD,(lower right flat) but did, for many years, longed to immigrate to AMERICA which I finally did at AGE 18, on my own, in APRIL 20 1960. I have wonderful memories of attending Ibrox elementary and then on to Lambill Street school which I believe is now a retirement facility. Prior to immigrating in 1960 I worked at BRITISH POLAR ENGINES on Helen Street in the Typing Pool. Stayed in NY for 2 yrs but then moved to Caifornia in '63. Married with 1 adult son who lives in Hawaii. I now reside in SUNCITY ROSEVILLE, a retirement community.

I doubt any one will remember me but the wonderful Business skills I learned at Lambhill St from Mr. Lithgow (shorthand/typing) enabled me to have some wonderful jobs over my business career: Anaconda Wire & Cable, Hastings-on-the-Hudson, NY, Mutual Benefit Insurance in Los Angeles, and spending 30 yrs at IBM CORP in San JOSE, CA, retiring in 1996 & then moving to Roseville, California. Now at 78 I tend to look back at my early life in Scotland with great fondness. And my long life in AMERICA has also been very too but I do credit my success to the wonderful skills I learned at LAMBHILL STREET.
