Hello Webmaister:  ...... lovely pages you have of Lily Street. The picture taken from Springfield Road, is all new to me, and not the way I remember it. In my mind's eye, I can still see Springfield school, and the church around the corner next to it and Craig's dairy across the street.  All the new houses look great, even the view down to Kinnear Road, where the railway and the stables used to be.



Look at the photo above these are the same railings
However this time I am looking in the opposite direction onto the site where Our Lady of Fatima Chapel used to be


  Blue dots is Lily Street     Green is where Chapel was
 This map will give you an idea where I stood taking
  these photos



Dalmarnock Community Centre, 3 Lily Street.
The old Springfield Primary School girls playground was in Lily Street and most of where the Community Centre now is was where that playground was. Part the centre was where the Dalmarnock Parish church was but most of this location was where the school itself was. The church was situated at 103 Springfield Road and closed in 1977
