I'd like to start one on Glasgow Cathedral, I've searched and could not find any project of that name. Does anyone have evidence of one before I start posting?

This may have been suggested or be a combination of previous ideas. What about a section devoted to Glasgow dance halls with pictures uploaded as you were then (no recent photos for privacy reasons) so as to easily identify past friends. Could include public and private dance halls/clubs. This was a past time enjoyed by most Glaswegians. People could use either first names or nicknames and include a small synopis of where and what they were then and where they are now.

The Glasgow dance halls thing is a great idea, alba. If you have any photos in that line then that would be excellent, and you are more than welcome to start a thread with them.

The people thing though... it tends to get bogged down in 'McGlumpher Street - anyone remember wee Jeanie MacKay from number 52?', which is good if you're one of the three people who do, but off-putting for everyone else. There're a number of other sites that are much better at that than HG is, to be honest.

Hi,

As this is my first post, hello to everybody.

A quick introduction of myself: I work as a self-employed environmental consultant and as such do desktop studies for large planning organizations and architects, which involves among other things, researching the history of sites which are earmarked for development / redevelopment. This research is carried out mostly at the Mitchell Library Map Room, inspecting and interpreting detailed Ordnance Survey National Grid and maps, and sometimes the occasional trip through to the National Library of Scotland in Edinburgh. Most of the sites are in urban settings (Brownfield) and as such have a legacy of contamination issues from mostly arising from industries such as 'coal mining', 'iron works', 'brick works', 'gas works', etc...

Getting to the point of the topic, If you would like to know the history of where you or a friend / family live, or where you once lived, then drop a line to strategic.environmental.gazetteer@ntlworld.com indicating a place name and / or postcode and I shall endeavor to provide a textual history of the area in question.

regards.

Hi I was just surfing/researching & I noticed you were discussing the Atlantic Mills in Bridgeton....I have a personal Diary from 1853 & I believe it belonged to one of the Anderson Brothers who owned the mill,,it is volume 2 and has about 117 pages of his expoits in America..a lot of the words I can't make out but I can't find any info other than the "Glasgow Story" info(which is more or less nothing!!)...if you can give me any other info I would be grateful...during the next week I will visit the Bridgeton Library & see if they have any info...it,s a fascinating read
