I am looking for pics of Glenfield Street, Alexandra Parade at Castle Street, also Castle Street, and any pics of round about that area. I was brought up in Glenfield Street. Happy times. Thank you.

I was born at 37 Glenfield Street in 1953 and lived there till I was 13. My maiden name is Sallans, & my Grandparents lived across the back from us in James Orr St. I went to Golfhill then Whitehill Senior Secondary & I now live in California, but I have all my Mum's old pictures, I will take a look and see what I can find.

I don't think I remember you, Irene, but do remember Ellen Sallans and her Mother. My maiden name is Smith and I lived in Warnock Street. I hope you're successful and contact your friends.

Hi, Irene. It was late last night when I found and replied to your post. I have a book of photographs called, "Old Townhead's a Goner". There are photographs of Castle Street and one of Castle Street from Alexandra Parade. There are also photographs of the surrounding area. Have you seen the photograph of "The Gizzi Man" in Warnock Street. It's easily available on the internet. Lesley.

Hi, Ellen. It was a lovely surprise to find your message. I hope you are well. I'd love to hear from you. Unfortunately, I am a complete technophobe and only have an e-mail address. Could we use e-mail to contact each other, please? Sincerely, Lesley.

Hello, Ellen. If you are agreeable to contacting me by e-mail, I'll post the address here for you. I should have mentioned this in the previous post. Lesley

Hello everyone. My mother was born in Glenfield Street in in 1931and out of interest I was searching to see if the street still existed (Rumour has it it was all demolished) and came across this website. My mother's name is Margaret and her maiden name is Mills. She lived with her widowed mother Janet and older brother Bill at 23 Glenfield Street. My mother remembers Bill was pals with a boy with the surname Sallans, and she too went to Golfhill. My mother's best friend at the time was Betty McGregor. She has described to me the back close, communal wash house, the steamie, and the "luxury" of having your own toilet in the flat.

Hello, David. A couple of weeks ago, for the first time in over a decade, I decided to visit Glenfield Street and Warnock Street. The rumour is true. Not only have the tenements been demolished, but also the building that housed Pathology Department and the adjoining wall. It's now a picnic area, I assume for staff of the Royal Infirmary. The chimney in Warnock Street and the Infirmary's incinerators have also been demolished and the area is now a car park. If you haven't done so already, you can view the photograph of Warnock Street on the internet (Gizzi photograph Townhead) to let you see at least part of the area where your mother was born. Lesley

Hi all, was wondering if anyone out there remembers my brother Ian Moffat & his wife Fay Downie who lived in Glenfield Street in the early sixties. They often talk about the area and neighbours & would be a great surprise to them if someone got in touch, cheers, Liz
