.......... thought you might like this photo of Connal street, No 1 on the corner (left) was where my husband and his family lived, as you will know Springfield Primany school was on the right and the red building right on the corner was near to where Dalmarnock Parish Church once stood, that's where we were married.......

Dalmarnock Parish Church, 103 Springfield Road, closed in 1977...... near to where Dalmarnock Community Centre, is at in 3 Lily St.

Hey Wull: Another great picture of the neighbourhood. I am a wee bit puzzled though, I remember the school being the length of Connal Street and around Lily Street. Didn't the church used to go from Lily Street around Springfield Road? with the main entrance to the church on Springfield Road. Please tell me I'm not having a senior moment. Loved the picture, the whole right hand side is all new to me.

The school took up the whole of the south side of Connal Street and part of the 'wee' boys playground wound right into Baltic Street. The 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 old church was but most of that spot was where the school itself was.
