I just came across this site and I also went to Newlands as did my two sisters. My name was margaret Davis born 1948 sister Sylvia Davis born 1947 and Rachel aka as Rae born in 1943. We visited my granny who lived at 18 Malcolm St. I only attended Newlands for 2 yrs and then had to move to school in Barlanark when i was 7. However both Rae and Sylvia did all there primary school there. It was great to see pictures of the old neighborhood. I hated to see Malcolm St. go. I always remember old Murn Greg at the dairy.... I saw a picture of the hall monitors and was so pleased to see one of the only class mates I remember from my early yrs., Ernest Laughlan [in the back row ]....I thought there was a Mc. in there he also lived on Malcolm St.....I later heard he grew up to be a traffic cop at Parkhead Cross?? I am afraid I have few good memories of the school. i was terrified my first day leaving my Mammy and we had to sit on orange crates because of a high enrollment that yr....Have you any info or pics of Malcolm ST. I remember going to the 3 Peas with my granny to see Elvis in King Creole.....I loved Parkhead even worked briefly in Woolworths...the good old days.....i now live in Ontario canada
Sincerely Margaret Young aka Davis
