"I wonder if anyone recognises themselves in this photo taken in Church House, Boden St. around 1948. I think it was at a concert. Please get in touch if you do. I am not in the picture but my wee brother is sitting in the front row right ,in a kilt. 
I spend hours on this website. I think it is great!"

The boys are giving it laldy too.
Superb smiling happy faces in these photos!



August 2003  founder Church House member  Jim O'Neil  East Kilbride, Scotland.
"....I was born 1926 in Bernard Street - attended Barrowfield School before going on to John St Secondary in 1938.
I attended everything to do with Queen Mary St. Church and was a founder member of Church House in 1942 along with James Simpson, Archie Buchanan, Robert Hay and John Gibson.!"
Feb. 2016  Ian MacKenzie-Cardy, Age 63, Javea, Spain.
I left Glasgow at the age of twelve and moved to London.I am proud of my roots and deliberately kept my accent at school and at work as a para medic and a police officer.( I did of course modify it a little so I could be understood ).
My wife is of Scottish/English and Indian origin, her first visit to Scotland was for our honeymoon in 1979....she loved the country, our unique city and the people . If we were not both athritic old farts we would have retired to Scotland. However we have to settle for Spain....but we are active members of the Javea Caledonians.
The pictures of Church House in Boden street showing a line up of a concert party has a kilted man sitting in the front row (left to right) No 7 is my uncle ( now deceased) Tommy Cardy ) there are also two pictures of Queen Mary street school wich show my older sister Rita and my younger sister Morag...a great site.
