This photo were taken on a Thursday
...an armed police marksman crouches at the
ready outside a flat in Stamford Street.
Armed police surrounded a house in an operation believed to be linked to a
murder investigation. Marksmen with high powered
rifles took up position as local streets were cleared. It all ended after
several hours with no arrests being made.
A local man was attacked by a gang the previous night and he died of his
injuries in Glasgow's Royal Infirmary, he is understood to have been
stabbed following a row over a car that had been damaged and set on
fire. It was reported that shots had been fired, hence the police
reaction....................sad to see guns creeping
into our society .....

I'm looking for anyone who lived in Stamford street before 1970. I have
looked on this site and I can't find my old school. I'm not sure of the
spelling but it was kamlacki primary school at the top of Stamford
street you turned right and the school was there. I remember a teacher
called miss Wishart

Hi Mamie, Thanks for taking the time to contact GlescaPals and your enquiry about Camlachie Primary School.
The school dated from May 1876 and served Camlachie, Barrowfield and Vinegarhill.
I also went to Camlachie Primary School and enjoyed my time there before moving on to Riverside.
You might also want to check out parkheadhistory.com which has a lot of information about Camlachie.
Best Regards, Peter Mortimer
