Norman Eadie, Essex, England
Hello Webmaister, I've just been "surfing" and came across your website
- brought tears to my eyes when I also discovered Bluevale Primary
had been demolished. I attended Bluevale from January 1954 until June
1959 (then went on to Whitehill Senior Secondary).
My first Primary had been Budhill (near Shettleston) as we used to live
in the "prefabs" in Hollowglen Road, until I was six years old, then we
moved to Dennistoun, just across the main road from Bluevale Primary
(down passed Alfie's Chip shop on the corner) and into the tenements in
Plant Street (which is now just grass) - it ran parallel with Duke
I haven't been able to find any photographs of my school pals online,
but I'm sure I have an old school photograph somewhere in the house and
will gladly upload it onto your site (once I learn how to do that!!) -
Our teacher for the last few terms at Bluevale was Ann McCracken - young
redhead (well she seemed younger than the rest of them!) perhaps she was
still there when you attended - maybe that's why I finished up marrying
a Glasgow redhead when I was in the RAF - have just retired from Fife
Council and moved from Scotland to Essex recently, so you can imagine
what it's like trying to find bits & pieces (especially photographs)
amongst all the boxes.
Hope to hear from you - Regards, Norman.
