520 Gallowgate

Family Life in Glasgow's East End
1843 1975



520 Gallowgate is a family biography.
It is based on factual events and reminiscences of various family members who lived in and around the Gallowgate, in the Calton and Camlachie Districts of Glasgow's East End, for more than a century and a quarter from 1843 to 1975. 
Times were hard.  Squalid living conditions in Glasgow tenement houses that lacked the most basic of necessities and the constant threat of compulsory eviction for non-payment of rent meant the family having to move house constantly in search of work.  Poor living conditions and lack of job opportunities meant children dying in infancy from poverty related diseases and the family becoming destitute and inmates of Barnhill Poorhouse.
Some family members emigrated to the USA to start a new life whilst others retrained to better their employment prospects and to educate their children.
Family members fought in two World Wars and despite their hard upbringing several became self-employed for most of their working life.
