Re: All aboard for George Square

Hi David, a bus to Milngavie eh?? We used to call it "Mull-in-Gavie" lol I used to go out with a girl from Milngavie. Well really I went out with her sister at first but she stole me away but after a while (about 6 months) I had to dump her. Not a nice person! I should have stuck with her sister Ann, she was real nice and I wish I wasn't such a dope then. If your out there Ann, "I'm real sorry girl! "


Haste ye back.

Re: All aboard for George Square

Hello Jimmy,
The Jimmy Strang romance story is out !!.  we used to call it Mullguy. The pronounciation is right it is just they seem to be bad spellers in that part of Glasgow !!.
A bus that caught my eye yesterday reminded me of the old Benburb supporters bus that left from the bottom of Greenfield Street.  See the Bens have a new manager.

I seem to remember a number of Govan families moving to Castlemilk, Penilee and Nitshill

Re: All aboard for George Square

Went along to this years Alton Bus Fair. Sadly no Glasgow bus this year. However I can offer a few pictures I bought and a few photo's.
One shows the open top bus that Southampton Football team used after they won the cup in 1976. Also there was an Edinburgh bus on view.
Many of the old and vintage buses take the crowds on a tour to various villages around the town. The driver of the Routemaster shown just happens to be my eldest grandson 5 years old Kenny; so the passengers were in safe hands !.
