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 St Secondary . Dad was  a member of the 155 BB out of Bridgeton Methodist next to my old home at 30 Landressy .
I have attached pis of two John St fitbaw teams I dont have exact years for the teams . I think St 1 was about 1949 with dad seated on ground left side , the other about 1947 dad seated on ground rt side .
 I have some fitbaw pics of when John St won City Championships  that i will have to search my sisters house for .
 I hope these pics can be of some use. All the best, Brian

Spotted my Dad in the John Street Secondary School Fitba team photo (c1949).
He is James (Jim) Flanagan, sitting in the second row, no. 6. He went on to be a pretty good football player! The 'scabby knee' is typical of him; he suffered several broken legs and broken noses during his football career! After football he took up marathon running and laterally cycling. He still lives in Glasgow, doing well at age 82.

I'm the youngest of Jim's 3 daughters, now living in the USA but returning to Glasgow often.
