"Great site. There's so much to
comment on. I lived in Greenhead St.
I was in the 219th BB at the church on London Rd at the bottom of
Kerr St, with the modern murals, the 155th at Bridgeton Methodist
at Landressy St / James St Corner and 92nd at Bridgeton Parish
Church at the corner of Dale St / Old Dalmarnock Rd. There was the 209th
at Rockcliffe Parish at Rockcliffe St and the 106th at London
Road St Clements.
Some of the BB officers I remember were Mr Glass, Walter Kelly, Mr
Wainwright, Donald Ellis, Mr McConnachie,
Joe Bovill, Johnny Holmes, Tom
Mackie, Mr Winning.
We did woodwork for our Arts and Crafts badges at the YMCA in London
Rd. I'll return to this site with more.
I have been working in the social work dept. since 1974, currently
doing a stint in Bridgeton.
I give this website address to anyone I know with a Bridgeton/Glasgow
Feb.2003. This photo sent
to me by Ronnie Stevenson, Glasgow, Scotland.
I hope you can do something with the attachment. I'l send a donation for all
the work you do on this site. Keep up the good work.
All the best. Ronald (Ronnie) Stevenson
This is a photo of Primary 3 or 4 at Rumford Street in 1952/53 or 1953/54.
I'm on the top row Number 4. I've had a guess at some of the others I hope
others have a better memory.

I think I can supply some of the missing names on the 1953 photograph. Row
1 no 5 Mary Sutherland, Row 2 No 1 ? Brodie No 5 John Finnie Row 4
no 6 John Paterson AS I remember it the teacher was Miss Jacobs not Mrs
Smith. Regards to Ronnie Stevenson and I would be happy to hear from
anyone to remember old times.

Keep up the good work. A Frank McDonald has emailed me to say he is 4th Row
Number 9. I've asked him to email you.
I think Top Row Number 1 is Richard Barclay. Sorry to give you more
conflicting information. All the best.
