Robert McAulay, Glasgow, Scotland,
lived at 5 Fairbairn street circa 1963-66 and attended Dalmarnock
Primary school as a nipper.
I still live in Glasgow, Hillington, and often pass through Dalmarnock on
the way to visit my
parents who still live in Rutherglen.
The old pic of the corner of Dalmarnock Road & Fairbairn
Street is where we lived. The shops on the corner would have been
Wullie's Dairy and the fruit shop. I
have many many fond memories of a poor but happy childhood in Fairbairn
