Thank you so much for my trip down memory lane. I found this site by accident and have had a great night exploring the history. I lived in Finhaven St just off London Rd, across from long john whiskey bond.
I often caught the Auchenshuggle bus and in my younger years the tram. On a recent trip back to Glasgow, I was saddened to see my old schools, and church had gone. Seeing the good shepherd again was such a thrill. As I have no primary school photos. My high school was Our Lady and St Frances.
I always thought the cemetery was called Dalbeth, so was interested to know its called St Peters., my brothers used to pinch apples from the farmer next door to the cemetery.
Thank you again I really enjoyed my hour of browsing your site and have >passed it on to my family.

I don't have a very good photo of the Good Shepherd Betty, but thought you might like to see your old school;
