Street Primary School
|Rumford Street Primary School closed in December 1958,
land where the school stood is now a play area
This is my big pal Jas, striding along......he attended Rumford Street School moving
to Strathclyde Primary School aged five-and-a-half when the school closed its
doors for the last time.
The 'modern' tenement building on the left behind the trees is Reid Street,
where incidentally he was born, No.81 and I was born across the road at No.80 !
Any old school photos out there?

from August 1958 until its closure in December. Thereafter we were moved
to Strathclyde Primary. One of my memories of
was the fact that my Ma came round at the morning playtime with a
play-piece for me. Either a biscuit or a piece. She also brought a wee cup
of tea instead of the ginger which I had when older. I also remember the
wee bottles of milk we used to get at the school (free) and later when I
was at Strathclyde it was great to be a milk monitor and carry round the
crates of milk to the infant classes.
Incidentally my mother and father also attended
in the 1920 and early 30s. My mother received a book in 1932 on the
Poetical Works of Robert Burns for Excellency in Scottish Literature. This
was donated by the Bridgeton Burns Club which is still in existence
