"Great website Will, I have lots of memories of the
"Buggie Lawn", the Dummy, Bully and Dalmarnock School. I was born in 209 Baltic Street in Oct 1952, moved to my grannies close
No. 223, at the Dunn St. corner around 1957 until the building came down
in 1968. My Granda Wullie Inglis (born 1900) owned the Dalmarnock Foot
Clinic on Dalmarnock Rd. between Fairbairn St. and Ruby St. He Was also a
trainer for Bridgeton Waverly and "cut man in the 1920's -30's for
the bare knuckle fighters round the "Bully" at Walkinshaw St and
My family dates back to the early 1900's in the Street, my Grannies maiden
name was Bingham, they had the wee fruit shop facing Arrol's in Dunn
Street, just up from Baltic St corner. before it closed in 1965 it was
called "Sybil's" after my dad's sister who was Sybil Sinclair
married to Jackie S.,(sons Billy and Tommy) also of 223 Baltic St. I
remember the penny Vantas drinks she sold and the penny check-machine in
the corner of the shop. I've attached a 1962 Dalmarnock School photo
with most of the names of my classmates."

How nice to see this after all these years.
The last time I saw Joyce was in Spain in the 80's, she was a tour rep.
for a holiday company. I've never seen any of the others since school. I've lived in London since 1989, don't go back any more.
Hope this info helps. Sandra.

What a wonderful site :-)
Just seen all of my "old" school pals who played an important part in
my growing up and building along the way, a wee bit of character. This
did me well as I passed through England (1st ex-pat
assignment) Philippines, Indonesia, China, finally settling down here
assigned in Asia the land of rice and noodles :-) Btw, I have managed by
some miracle to retain my Glasgow accent throughout these years. When
the amazing local folks here tell me "Gordon, you speak too fast" I
always reply "no you listen too slow" :-) :-)
Thanks to everyone over there who ever did anything to lift my spirits
and those who suffered my bad sense of humour. Lang
May Yer Lum Reek. Gordon
PS I'm living this last 23 years in Asia, currently Philippines. I have light hearted tale to tell: At
the ripe old age of 10, my first school crush was Sandra Callaghan who
just last month made an entry to the class page :-) She left
Dalmarnock before me breaking my heart. She was moving to Castlemilk.
Saying good bye my wee heart was in my tummy & this my mother said
was cause I was just a hopeless romantic:-)
So, its taken 50 years to
see her pic. & read her words again & this only goes to prove"
everything comes to he who waits".
Thank you Webmaister, Will McArthur, your site will receive my donation.
Thank you Sandra, you've made an "old" man very happy :-)
