Re: My time in Govan as a wee boy.

Thankyou Jimmy, just love this forum.  Hey, I did learn that Alex patterson  one of my little friends died early eighties he was knocked down on Govan Road.  He was Johhny pattersons little brother from number 3 South croft street.  Very sad indeed!

  Is it true that they are investing in the Lyceam cinema in Govan and opening it up again? I will defffo b first in the queue (smile
I plan on visiting this week and do a tour of my old school copleland road primary - see the docks and just enjoy the feeling of Govan.  Will take some pics.  Looking forward to the stories - very interesting - wish we could turn the clock back (cry)

Re: My time in Govan as a wee boy.

Hello Marie,

Never lived at that end of Govan although my mother warned me about it !.
However I did attend the Boys Brigade at S.Kiarens Dean Park Parish Church for a couple of years and went to Ibrox many times to watch the Rangers. I used to walk along Govan Road from Copland Road to Govan Cross to catch the bus back to Drumoyne where I lived.

Nice to see you posting !.

Re: My time in Govan as a wee boy.

Hello....I write from Ireland - I think I'll have to sit my mother down and introduce her to the wonders of the internet. She was born in Orkney St., and has never lost the accent   although she has not been back there since sometime in the thirties. She is now aged 90. My grandfather worked in the shipyards - but I have no photographs or documents. Thanks for all your hard work on the site.

Re: My time in Govan as a wee boy.

Hi Finno, Sorry I have not answered before this bit I have been ill and spent the last five weeks on my back in bed. I am still not 100% yet but I thought I had better have a look see how things were on here. I'm sure the thoughts of you Mother about her times in Govan would be great to hear, I hope you get her round to computers. Thanks for your post hope there will be more?

Haste ye back.
