Robert Cameron, Maryland, USA
wife and I recently discovered your website, and have found it to be
a goldmine of memories. We lived at 175 James St.(the Post
Office Pend), emigrated in 1965, and now live in Maryland, U.S.A. I am attaching a photo of the 1951 Class
John Street School which I
attended from 1946 -1951.
I look forward to hearing from you, and
hopefully contribute further to the GlesgaPals website."
Robert's wife, Betty (nee Boyle) was born and raised at 175 James
St.,and attended both "big" and "wee" John St. Schools. She is included
in photos taken in John St. Primary 1946, and
in John St.Secondary1950. After leaving John
St. school she went to work for Mavor & Coulson.
Betty were married in
Church in 1955, and when he was demobbed from National Service in
1958, they moved into a house at the same 175 James St., 3 up (above the
Post Office), where they stayed until they emigrated to Canada in 1965
with their two daughters.
Now living in the USA.
