Streets of Bridgeton 

 Tullis Street                            page1   page2

Tullis Street is named after the Tullis family, tanners and leather merchants in the area for many years.
John Tullis & Son came to Calton from Arbroath in 1854 and in 1870 opened the St Annís Leatherworks in John Street in Bridgeton. Large quantities of hard-wearing leather belts were required in a wide variety of factories and workshops where steam engines were used to drive machinery

Tullis Street taken from the Main Street
Derelict land and trees on the left  is where John St.Senior Secondary School once proudly stood..

The top left of the picture you can just make out Ruby St high rise flats, to the right of the tree is new flats which were built in the Main Street and further right is the original three storey tenements.

Picture below taken from roughly the same spot........sad isn't it?

This is a view of the old school looking along the street towards Bridgeton Main Street
 see picture of the new school built in 1970

Tullis Street was formerly known as John Street and that is where the school got its name from.
Below is an old photo taken from Greenhead Street c1906 looking east along John Street
   You can just make out the square turret of the John St. School building.
The church opposite is Bridgeton Greenhead UF church demolished c1937 now the site of Tullis Street Orange Hall
And as you can see from the photo below the pub on the corner is still a pub!.

Same view from Greenhead St looking east along Tullis Street
Sadly the church and the school have been demolished.
