CAN Times Past readers help reunite old neighbours from Possilpark?

We know you love a good mystery - so here are another three to get your teeth into.

Wilma Davidson spotted an interview with Joe McGarry, who came along to our Thanks for the Memories event at Possilpark Library back in 2017.

He told us all about living in the building known as The Mosshouse on Possil Road, where he stayed until he was eight.

“We – me, my brothers Stephen and John, my sister Agnes and my mum and dad Cathy and Tommy -didn’t have the whole place, just the downstairs – a Mr and Mrs Turner lived upstairs,” he recalled.

“I remember every inch of that house, even though I was quite young when I left. It was owned by the Alliance Box Company, whose big A-B-C sign was displayed on the wall behind.”

He added: “There was an old washhouse out the back we used to call the dungeon,” he said. “I remember Mr Bell’s dairy across the road, and Mr McPate’s paper shop.

“The Mosshouse used to be an inn, apparently, so when they opened up a pub around the corner they called it the New Mosshouse.”

Wilma was gobsmacked – as she was the daughter of the Turners, the couple Joe mentioned in his recollections.

“My maiden name was Turner and I was brought up at the Mosshouse by my mum and dad, Robert and Chrissy Turner,” she said.

“I remember Joe’s parents very well – my mum and his mum got on well together. I was just a teenager then, now I am 82.”

Wilma added: “I loved my life at the Mosshouse. I left home when I was 24 to get married but my husband Robert and I always came back to see my mum and dad.

“They left in 1965, moving to a flat in Killearn Street.

“Joe’s story brought back so many memories for me, and I’d love to thank him for that. It would be great to hear from him.”

If you are reading this, Joe, please get in touch - Wilma would love to hear from you.

Meanwhile, Margaret Marchetti, nee Donald, got in touch to tell us she grew up in Partickhill, at number 2 Crawford Street with her mum and dad Tommy and Anne, and sisters Marilyn, Angela and Audrey.

“Below us was a fish and chip shop and I have been trying for years to find a picture of my old building, but have failed,” she told us.

“My house was in a tenement building, across the road from the Ettrick pub.

“I have many happy memories of growing up there – I was born in 1962, and we moved when I was 10 years old. They condemned the building and we were one of the last families to leave, to go to Carntyne.”

Can anyone help Margaret find a photograph of her childhood home?

Talking of mystery photographs, World War One researcher Danny Burt discovered this old photograph of a Glasgow University student who served in France.

“The only details I have is ‘Second Lieutenant N McFarlane’ and I believe his first name might have been Noel,” Danny says.

“He served from 1915 to 1917 in France reaching the rank of Captain. He was awarded a Mention in Dispatches.

“I am in the military myself and very interested in war memorabilia and photographs.

“Apart from this I know very little about him and his life and would like to find out more. It would be great if Glasgow Times readers could supply any details?”
