Govanhill.

Postby Deano » Wed Jan 14, 2015 4:01 pm

Hi All

I was born in Govanhill (Preston Street) & lived there between 1965-1975, was a great place to grow up in (well it was in those days ::): ), I remember (vaguely) the old shed, the swings & the slides, but i remember an old white house that was never ever opened, cant remember what it was or what it had been, used to scare the shit out of me when I was a wean :oops:

Forgot to add, the White house / shed was at the main entrance of the park, right in the centre of Govanhill!!!!

There may be Privacy settings on Facebook images so whilst you have the good sense not to be "Friends" with HGrs it might be a good idea to source the image from elsewhere on the internet.
"I before E, except after C" works in most cases but there are exceptions.

Very kind of you to point this out- I hadn't thought about the privacy settings. However, it's from an open group, so should be visible.

deano, the picture is of Govanhill Park (bounded by Govanhill St, Langside Rd, Coplaw St & Inglefield St). Assuming this is the correct Park I think you could be thinking of what we knew as the "Old Men's Club". This was a white building at the Inglefield St gate (opposite Preston St). In the early 60's there were Bowling Greens beside it but they were taken away about 1963-64.

That's exactly the building - thanks for the info, great wee park to play in when I lived in Govanhill (1965-1975), it also had swings & a red ash football pitch IIRC


Cheers.
