Streets of Bridgeton     

 Landressy Street    Page1
Landressy Street should really be Landres Street, after a small village in France, from where one of the Turkey-Red operatives originated. This unknown person built the first house in this street.

The Masonic Hall and to the right Greenhead Barrowfield Church hall which were in this street have gone.
The single level church hall was taken over by the "Apprentice Boys of Derry." 
This later closed and was bought by the owner of the Keystane pub, who moved from his premises in James Street 

The Keystane pub in Landressy St can be seen below.

Hello, although born and lived in the Gorbals (Lawmoor Street) I attended John Street Secondary 53/56. Your web site is really good and much appreciated, wonderful pictures. I was also married in the Masonic Hall in Landressy Street, started my apprenticeship with the East Kilbride dairy farmers on Silvergrove street. ( guess they are now long gone also) I notice a little blue car in many pictures? I assume that this is our webmaster at work as he takes pictures? Thank you for the memories....."

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 Street.

The Landressy Street pic would be about 1970
All the best,
