Swanston Street? I lived there in the early 60's, and would like to
my kids where I lived. Would be grateful if you could help.

Dear Webmaister many thanks for your email. A wee bit about
me and my sisters (margaret. agnes,) We were born in Hogganfield st
Blackhill. but our parents came from calton . and Margaret & I moved to
SWANSTON ST when we got married she is coming over tomorrow to look at
your website Her hubby Tommy came from Bellgrove st so we were happy to
find your site from a friend of maggies.
Tommy would love some photos of bellgrove and milanda bakeries where he
worked maggie and i both worked for Bowies drycleaners and got a house with
the job. so great to see swanston st ,also
Stevenston st where i had my first house. Great memories . Also i went
to charlotte st 1953/1956 so would love a photo.
If anyone would like to get in touch from hogganfield st/drumpellier st
bowies days we would be happy to hear from them.
Have got so many friends out here from all over nz that we have met through
the years since we came here (1966). Agnes would like to hear what became of
the boyle family from acrehill st.
Been to the HIGHLAND GAMES today in AUCKLAND a great day also a good place
to promote GlesgaPals ,you should have seen the queue for scottish pies
,haggis, tattie scones .and listened to all the pipe bands and the lassies
dancing and all the stalls for all the different clans promoting Scotland It
will never die out here. Nostalgia right enough. Sorry about the text etc
here ,but just a learner and doing 1 hand typing. bye for now. HAERE RA
