To answer a question that arose elsewhere would anyone be able to advise when these streets were built? I reckoned the 20s or early 30s - being part of the government housing improvement schemes of the times.
Seem to remember going to a Parkheed Rangers Supporters Club dance at Quarryknowe Street in the 60's. Was there a masonic hall on the left as you walked up from Westmuir Street, or was it some other organisations hall Seem to remember it looked grand from the outside, is it still there
I couldn't believe this when I read this post, I was at a ladies night in the orange hall in Quarrknowe St last night and I was talking about the masonic hall that was there years ago which became the Swinging doors, a few of the younger ones there didn't know of this hall, I remember it well as this is where our wedding reception was held in.
We were married in St Barnabus chapel in Shettleston then in the Masonic for the party, you can guess some of the jokes that were going around.
Adaline we were talking about the 'swinging' doors' tonight in the pub and how they had strippers and everyone had to fill a pint tumbler wi' 50 pence pieces before the strippers would take their clothes off...changed days indeed when we used to give hauf the burdz a couple of Cally's and they would strip aff and ither things aw night for a few cans mair. ;D
