This site is a resource and gathering point for people who once lived in Springburn to the late 70s. This will include Petershill, Balornock and Barmulloch. Given the widespread destruction of the area in the 1970s recollections of what has become a vanished world are fading fast and our aim is to gather memories of Old Springburn under one umbrella before they disappear altogether. We can all do that by sharing pics and memories. Please note: This site is self editing and can take a little bit of time to get used to. You must register in order to post your own stories about your schools, your football teams, workplace, the once famous shops and also a section to build up old photographs of Springburn in the pre demolition period. Please do this; it costs nothing, you won't be spammed and it means the site can grow and be original.

Also let us know if any copyright infraction has unwittingly occurred on our side and we will put it right,either by removing or crediting any piece.

Does anyone know where I could source a high resolution copy of the 'Springburn - Locomotive Builder to the World' mural on the main page? It would be great to make a print copy of it or even to use as a suggestion as a large mural to place on the exposed gable end of the tenement at Keppochhill Road where the old Public Halls stood until December.

I hope I'm reporting in the right spot. New to your site so you'll have to forgive me. We used to sing a song while playing doubles in the back close. I don't think it's politically correct but it was what we used to sing. Archie ball, ball, ball, the king of the Jews, Jews, Jews, bought his wife, wife, wife a pair of shoe, shoes, shoes. When the shoes, shoes, shoes began to wear, wear, wear. Archie ball, ball, ball began to swear, swear, swear. When the swear, swear, swear began to stop, stop, stop. Archie Ball, Ball, Ball he bought a shop, shop, shop. When the shop, shop, shop began to sell, sell, sell. Archie ball, ball, ball bought a bell, bell, bell. When the bell, bell, bell began to ring, ring, ring Archie Ball, Ball, Ball began to sing, sing, sing. THEN WE STARTED ALL OVER AGAIN.
