Re: Tenemental Mansions in Glasgow

Noted down the artists name - John Cunningham, who turns out to be a well know figure: http://www.johncunningham.org.uk/ On his we...

Re: Anyone remember a70s cafe at Caledonian Mansions (Kelvi

I used to live in the human rabbit warren known as Caledonian Mansions in the late 70s. It's the big building next to the Kelvin Bridge on Gt Western Road. There was a nondescript wee cafe among the shops below where I often ate. I started a thread in another place about today being the 30th annive...

Re: Help placing 2 old photos (Scotstoun/Scotstounhill)

They must have demolished a lot of those houses. I remember playing in one of them in the last row left shortly after the shopping centre was built. The house was in a sorry state and all the kids would risk their necks running through it. Wonder how old the trees are and if the one in the original ...

Lodging Houses

Were the Lodging houses the same as the Poorhouse?
What does 'Model' mean?
Is there any details or lists of all the Lodging houses from 1800's to around early 1900's anywhere?

Re: random question

Anyone else done research on Scotland's People and came across the idiot register, circa 1860's, who wrote in ineligible slanted hand writing - what do you do then?
Could it be easier to read the actual copy- if ordered?
