Fairbairn Free Church,    Baltic Street    

   


cc 1966          Church is situated in Baltic Street opposite Fairbairn Street.....sadly now demolished.

.
This photo is amazing for me.........because I lived at 74 Fairbairn St, corner close and from my bedroom window 2-up this was what I would see everyday.
Along to the right of the photo was
tenements with a row of shops, 
I remember Adam's chip shop 
and Bob & Millie's dairy

To the left of the church, which I only remember as being closed, was the dunny where we played football just about every night! Beyond the spare ground is Albany Street and my old school, Dalmarnock Primary.

Webmasiter....your website brings back so many childhood memories. 
My father was born in Springfield Road in 1904 and this '1896 postcard' from the Fairbairn Free Church Sabbath School belonged to my grandfather, C.George Armstrong
