Alex Todd
Canada
N/A I was born in Bridgeton (Madras St.) 50 years ago (1949), and we moved around a lot....no, not because the provvy was after us! LOL. We just did. I lived in Milton until I was about 5, then moved to Doncaster, England. We moved back to Scotland when I was 9, and lived in Partick (Sawmill Rd). Then we went back to Bridgeton, for another year or so, then moved Drumchapel (Drummore Rd), and finally to Knightswood (Moorehouse Ave.). Needless to say, I attended quite a few schools...none for any length of time. Certainly not long enough to establish any long time friendships. I have trouble now even remembering any names from those days. In Partick, I went to Balshagary for about 6 months, in Bridgeton...John St. for about a year. While we were in Drumchapel I went to Waverly in Knightswood. I left there in 1964 before they moved the school to Drumchapel. I went to work at Singer in Clydebank, and was in the diecasting department for most of my stay there. I moved to Canada in January 1971, to Toronto. I worked for a pharmaceutical company where I met my wife (of now 25 years). We moved up to Lakefield, about 80 miles north east of Toronto in 1981 to take over her parents house when it got too big for them. Lakefield is where Prince Andrew went to school when he was in Canada. I got a job with Chesebrough-Ponds in Peterborough, and am still there. They were purchased by the Anglo-Dutch conglomerate Unilever in 1986, and our name was changed to Thomas J. Lipton....a good Scottish company Well, enough about me, if anybody remembers me, I'd love to hear from you.

N/A In the mid 60's I had a pen pal from Bridgeton named Elizabeth Casey. Her address was 69 Reid Street. My last letter to Elizabeth was returned to me with no forwarding address. I never heard from her again and I have always wondered if she is ok. I would love to hear from her again.
Jim Brogan
England
  My name is Jim Brogan, and I was born in Glasgow in 1950. I lived on Alexandra Parade (No 678, opposite the park gates) with my parents Bob and Betty (both now deceased)and my brother Robert (now in Canada) and sister Elizabeth. I went to Alexandra Parade Primary School. We moved to Easterhouse (Provanhall part, Balfluig St, number 19) when I was eight. I first went to Provanhall Primary School then on to Garthamlock Secondary School from 1962 to 1968, followed by Strathclyde University. I then lived on Duke St. (No. 314) for three years before moving to Rotherham, South Yorkshire to work in the steel industry. Been here ever since (but I'll never be an Englishman, too proud of my accent and background). I get to see my sister (now in Paisley) occasionally but I seem to have lost touch with everything else in Glasgow (apart from the Rangers). It would be great to hear from anyone out there who remembers me or my family, or anyone who lived in the same places at the same time as myself, or went to school with me.
