June 2012, Brian Piggot, Toronto, Canada
I am Brian Piggot originally of Landressy St now just outside Toronto Canada . I have received much pleasure looking at your great site over the years and thank you for your commitment to preserving not just Glasgow history but its peoples history .
My late father Thomas Piggot was born on Kerr St  in July 1934 and raised at 549 London Rd attending John Street Secondary .

 
Dad was a member of the 155 BB out of Bridgeton Methodist Church next to my old home at 30 Landressy St.
 

The 155 BB pics would be circa 1945,
Dad is seated on the box


and the group photo
is at a summer camp.
