Hunthill, where my younger brother Jim was born.
Went briefly to Budhill Primary School (sadly
since demolished) before my father's job took us
to Hong Kong, where I lived until 1989. Dad
(Jimmy) was with the GPO, as my grandfather (also
Tommy) before him. We used to come back every
couple of years for a few months holiday, and

I briefly went to school. I have many relatives

|Laurence McGowan, aka Laurie or Lorry
||Born in Glesca, 1956. My dad
was a Merchant Marine Officer, so he traveled all
over the world. He decided, when we, my older
brother and I, that we must move into the world,
and make our life. When I was two years auld it
was Africa. NO GO! When I was Five. it was
Australia, that was not OK with the family
either. My dad tried his best to convince my
family that we could do beter elsewhere, he won.
We came to the States in 1969, and have been here
ever since, 30 years this year.
We are from Penilee, Glasgow. My fathers family
is the McGowans of Peneld Rd. My mothers family
were the Correls of Inkerman Rd, then, 66
Ranfurley Rd. where I was born, and went to St.
Georges Primary. We moved to Dormandside Rd in
Pollok, in 67, and I went to Braidcraft or St.
Convals. Whatever your choice was then.

||Hi, I am a 29 year old single
mother. I am currently living in the US and I am
attending University. I would love to hear from
some people from Glasgow. I have been away from
Glasgow for 7 years but got home for lots of
visits. Unfortunately, I haven't been home for

believe how much it has changed.
