  Glesca's ...........backcourts

.

Backcourts- where we played fitba, climbed dykes, raked the middens, played games
Backcourts- where mammy's hung oot their washing, blethered, put the weans in the pram for fresh air


Old Glesca three storey tenement and backcourt fae the auld days.
...... the open overflowing middens, big puddles, the washing hingin' oot and the neighbours sittin' roon the back wi' the weans in the prams hivving a blether!

.

Building of gang huts & doocots which was
a good starting point for DIY, straightening 
rusty nails and constructing  a wooden frame 
covered with old carpets and "waxcloth" 
from the derelict tenements.
This was also an age of sexual enlightenment 
for us so the privacy of the hut with a lit candle allowed the  opportunity to have a kiss and cuddle!
