I'm searching for my brother whose name before he was adopted was Brian James Bain dob 12th May 1956 born 92 Doncaster Street Maryhill Glasgow. Mother Mary McLeod Barclay (maiden name) Bain. Any information would be grateful.

Also searching for Andrew McCaw father William McCaw worked for the railway, they lived in Killearn Street in the 1940 '50s could of been before that as well?
I was told Andrew was brought up by an aunt at another address in Killearn St.
Would like to have info or photo's of family.
Thanks Patty

I'm a Product Design student at the Glasgow School of Art, and at the moment I'm working on a project in the East End of Glasgow. I feel the East End is given a really bad reputation in the media, yet when I've been speaking to locals they are actually very proud people, and have a great sense of community.

When I've been researching I noticed extensive use of buses in the area, and so I though I could somehow use this in my design, maybe as form of transportation of news or local stories. Essentially I want to give more power to locals and give them more of a voice.

It would be great if people could tell me a story, an experience, a thought, and opinion or some news. Even one or two sentences would be very helpful! I want to know more about the East End!

Does anyone know what happened to my old school on Friends-reunited website?... Our Lady & St. Margarets on Stanley Street, Kinning Park.

The actual school no longer exists.

The FR page was once a thriving , with a great history, and hundreds of former students listed, but alas it is no longer on Friends-reunited. Enquiries to the Friends-reunited Help site have drawn a blank. Thanks for any information.

I was born in Kenmore St, Shettleston in 1949 and attended Wellshot Rd Primary School until 1957 when we moved to East Kilbride. I don't really recall much about Kenmore St save for the 'bottle works' which was located at the top end of the street near to Old Shettleston Road. My uncle, John Taylor worked there. When I 'grew up' I joined the police and luckily for me I was posted to the east end of Glasgow. As happy as a pig in s**t. I spoke the language and knew exactly what the bad guys were all about. There were so many really decent folk there and they greatly outnumbered the dross. East end folk were simply the best. I retired a few years ago and wrote some books about my life as a cop back then. If I had the opportunity I'd go back and do it all over again. Glasgow can be a bit 'rough and ready' but nowhere I've ever been matches it, the people have made it what it still is. The finest.

I am looking for a family that lived on Carillon Road in 1955. The family used to look after my mum. They were known as Aunty Peggy & Uncle Bob. I think they had children Don and Ann. I guess it was that street because there was an accident outside their house where a man was struck by a slate from the roof in Feb 1955, which my mum recalls. If anyone can help, please get in touch. Thanks

I was born in Stobhill in 1964, we lived in Elmvale St. Used Kay St Bath's when we could. We used to play on the Plots which led up to the old bowling green. We played at the swings most days at the top of the street ( anyone else ) ? there was 5 of us boys and always got chased if the Parkie was about ( i was always caught , bein the youngest ) a used to just greet until he let me go , lol. We also played in the old tenements we called the Auld backs , These tenements were above the shops on Springburn Rd, we played above the undertakers who chased us all the time ( me bein caught on numerous occaisions ) again lots of greetin, lol. Great fun in Springburn in those days safe to play out, Favourite place was Springburn Park. We let in Oct 1971 when i was seven. we were never in the hoose until my Ma or Da made us get in.

Hi Vi
I noticed your message and I wondered do you know any of the McCaw's?
My father was William McCaw he lived in Killearn St worked for the railway, and he had a son Andrew who I'm searching for to see if he has any photos of my father.
Andrew was brought up by an aunt in another part of Killearn St due to his mother Peggy passing in childbirth.
I have got some of a family tree but not at hand at the moment, I was a member of Genesreunited and let it lapse but will rejoin again.
I did copy down the McCaw family tree and it went back to Ann Murray, back to 1865 I need to check the dates, memory not very good.
Regards Patty
