Happy 70th! All things East Kilbride

East Kilbride will be seventy years old. It was the first post war New Town, Glenrothes followed soon after, then attracted many cutting edge and prestige companies. It has not had its sorrows to seek of late in these austere times but it is seeing a slow but steady resurgence. Any East Kilbride obs...

Re: Glasgow Truant school

A halfway house before Polmont then inevitably for some prison. Improvements involved vocational classes with training in car mechanics and cheffing.

Re: The Peter Manuel case.

Manuel's sister went on to become a nurse of great reputation and regarded with great affection in Lanarkshire. A devil and an angel in the one family.

Re: Save the Egyptian Halls

That mini labyrinth of scaffolding and darkness might end up costing the council anyway in a compensation claim.

Re: The Jolly Giant

It *was* 1985 and the Star Wars figures were Chewbacca and Medic droid. I know what you mean about the final, rare figures and I kick myself reminiscing now. In our native East Kilbride, our John Menzies, had stacks of Yak Face and Anakin Skywalker (old man version) I was all about He-Man and disreg...

Brilliant! I recognise it now. Must be a 1985 entry - I'll ask!

Re: The Jolly Giant

image.jpg The Crow Road Jolly Giant is indeed now Arnold Clark. I found a 1982 school diary entry where my brother pretty much details a virtual tour of the inside of the store: "When I went in there was a Jolly Giant dummy. He is looking after the trolleys. I went through a metal roundabout t...

Re: The People's History Show

I like the vaguely amateur but knowledgable style. A refreshing manner away from Neil Oliver's unilateral and declarative egotism.

Re: Buskers / Street Performers

Leo Mushet (forty something eternal raver, bleached hair, specs, neon gloves, dances in a robo-rave style to every busker that catches his eye) remains the current king of the crop.
