Venues ~ 1- Bridgeton Waverley Football Club, Barrowfield Park was situated at Camlachie. Founded by former pupils of Queen Mary Street School in Bridgeton, but disbanded during World War 1. Later reformed, becoming a junior club in 1924, playing their games at Shawfield before moving to Barrowfield Park. Their stay here was quite short lived as the ground became the subject of a compulsory purchase by Glasgow Corporation who needed the land for the Barrowfield housing scheme 2- Olympic Stadium 3- Celtic F C 4- Queens Recreation Ground 5 -Riverside Schools Football Ground 6- Strathclyde Juniors Football Ground : Springfield Park, it opened in 1919 and remained in use until 1965 at Silverdale Street. Home of Strathclyde Juniors, who were founded in 1888, and who previously played at Beechwood Park at Dalmarnock until August 1901, and from there they moved to New Beechwood Park, before finally settling at Springfield Park. The team became defunct in 1963 7- Belvidere Bowling Club 8- Carntyne Dog Track : Opened in Oct. 1927, principally as a greyhound race track, in its history used for many other sports. Laid out on the site of a farm and former flapping track, it became the venue for the Scottish Greyhound Derby, and continued dog racing until May 1972. On 6th Aug. 1928 around 35,000 fans watched a boxing match at Carntyne between Tommy Milligan and Frank Moody. Also accommodated speedway events with meetings commencing in 1928. Between 1960 and 1962 Bridgeton Waverley football team played their home fixtures at the stadium. Early 1960’s efforts were made at Carntyne to generate revenue by a variety of means. October 1962 a casino was opened within the stadium. To lure customers Greenshield Stamps were on offer in May 1963, a golf driving range was also tried that summer with 40 balls for 2/6d. June 1966 stock car racing came to Carntyne to try and make the venue sustainable. Sadly lmost nothing remains 9- Glasgow Tramways Recreation Ground (Helenvale) 10- Glasgow Corporation Transport Bowling Club 11- Parkhead Juniors Football Ground:Helenslea.

Belvidere House was sold to the Town Council in 1870 as the site for a hospital for infectious diseases. Initially, the patients were accommodated in temporary buildings in the grounds. The mansion was demolished and a nurses' home built on the site, prior to the official opening of the hospital's permanent buildings in March 1887. Belvidere became a general geriatric hospital before it closed in 1999.

This is the site of a shop known as the 'wee farm' on Cuthelton St when I was a boy living at number 68 in 1946. It was almost directly opposite the Fire Station ( officially opened 8th December 1952 and built on a site known as the 'watt'r tank') The shop was still there a year or two ago (it is 2015 now). Turnstiles into the Parkhead Juniors FC ground were right beside the shop, although the pavilion/dressing rooms were on Methven St.

previously the site of an engineering works of a sort, 'Donald Clark' I think it was called.I moved to the corner close across the road from the gates as three year old in 1946.The works signalled 1.00 pm by sounding a siren, making the same sound as the war-time 'all clear'. Domestos/Stergene took over round about 1951.

Not knowing anything of French, we used to say Val dee Travers.( I only discovered a few years ago that Val de Travers is a place in Switzerland where they mined asphalt in the late 18th century) .

The cabs of the lorries were painted yellow, and the doors had the name 'Val de Travers' and 'trinidad asphalt' painted on them, so we always thought the tar came from trinidad.

On the brick wall beneath that big chimney, which was on the 'roadway' down to the cycle track and the park and the allotments and so down to the banks of the Clyde, there was a small metal door.

As kids we would try to see through the little space at the top of the door, to see what was being burnt. Hospital waste, presumably, but our imaginations would run away with us.
