    Annfield Primary School  Cubie Street, Bridgeton        SPRAYS

 

Aug.2009, email from Les Jolly, Glasgow
I’ve attached a cartoon which may be of interest. It was written by an artist, I think his name is David, who was a pupil at Annfield Primary. I left the East End in 1973 and used the “Spray Baths”, it’s definitely part of our social history.   Regards,  Les.
Webmaister: yes indeed Les a part of our social history, I remember getting the 'sprays' at Dalmarnock Pimary School
                     A fabulous cartoon be great if we could get the artist's full name.



Sept.2016 Success !!!  received this email ..... I'm the author and artist of the cartoon that appears on your school photos page.
 It's from my Kindle book 'Walking doon the Gallowgate'.  I was at Annfield Primary in Cubie Street from 1955-1962.
Best wishee,  David Moffat


Webmaister: Lovely to hear from David and to credit him for the wonderful cartoon and indeed his Kindle book.....
                     Walking doon the Gallowgate
                     Walking doon the Gallowgate is the humorous story of the author’s childhood in 1950s Glasgow.
                     Told in words and pictures (over 300 drawings, and photographs) the book looks at family, school and life in general,
                     through the all seeing, unblinking eyes of a pre-teenage boy.

Webmaister I remember at Dalmarnock primary school in the late 1950s, early 1960s.  A big lorry would park in Albany street and silver 6ft by 6ft  panels were carried in and assembled into portable showers, only sides with no roof,  built in the playground. We were assembled and then sent in to get a shower.  Carbolic soap, a towel and scrubbers were given to you.  Outside school toilets too of course in the playground

it was mobile showers we had in our school in Springburn too..

We had outside DRY toilets at St Luke's in the Gorbals. Attached to the back of the school was a school for special needs children. Every Friday morning we were taken there & a green lady checked us for nits & if we needed a 'spray' we went into communal showers
