Jim Millar
Canada
As many things Scottish as possible. I was born on the 19th April,1927, in Elderpark Street, Govan and attended Elderpark St School, Craigton Road Scools, Cardonald School, Alexander Parade School, Whitehill Secondary. I started work at the age of 14 years at the North British Locomotive, Hydepark Works in Springburn. I was in the Scots Guards from 1944 - 1948. I came to Canada in 1951 to the Toronto area and then on to Ottawa in 1960, where I presently reside. I return to Scotland on business trips on several occasions and spend my time visiting and staying with family on the Isle of Arran. There is nothing more relaxing than hanging over the rail of the Glen Sannox or the current Car Ferry and thinking back to the same trip made a few generations prior. Govan, Cardonald, Dennistoun and Springburn ( including the terracing at Firhill) all made a major contribution to preparing me for the life ahead and to Glasgow in general, I THANK YOU.
