Email, July 2019, Louise Crawford, (nee Dallas) Age 56, East Kilbride, Scotland
" I have a photo of my dad on a BB trip to Isle of Man. It's taken at Glasgow Central Station in 1954.
  His name is John Dallas and he lived in Wolesley Street, Glasgow. He was 16 years old. "


Webmaister:  Wolesley Street is in Oatlands. Does anyone have any info on these companies, any names for the photo?

Hi Will, 
Thanks for your message, your website is often one of my sources when I'm looking to find something without digging
through our archives so it's good to return the favour!

In 1954 the 149th Glasgow was attached to Toryglen Church, the 1953-54 directory is the first time they're listed there. Looking at the church website the foundation stone was laid in May 1953.

The 239th Glasgow was attached to Milton Church, Cowcaddens, they met in Dundas Vale School, New City Road, bible class was in the church hall, 29 Milton Street.
 
We don't have records of the companies other than the directory section of our old annual reports. I don't know what the link would be, 149th were in Cathcart District and 239th in Kelvingrove District.
