If you're visiting the Gorbals pop in to the Library at Crown Street and have a look at a book called 'The Gorbals an Illustrated History'.. There is an old, very detailed,  map of the streets in 1910 and on pages 61 and 67 pictures of the back courts at Thistle Street in the 1960s.
You'll have to use your imagination a bit to visualise what it would have looked like when your gran was wee, as by then they were in a dilapidated state, but this is where she would have played when she was a child.

Annette

I made it to Eastwood Cemetery and thanks to the fantastic help of one of the Cemetery staff we found my Great x 2 Grandfather`s lairs but unfortunately they did not  yhave headstones which was a shame.....I`m taking my mum to visit family location in and around Glasgow tomorrow for her Birthday and we are going to visit Thistle Street, Gorbals, Pollok House, Eastwood Cemetery, Broomfield Road, Springburn and hopefully Thorn Road, Bearsden if time allows and the traffic is kind to us....really looking forward to it.

Hi there I came across your post while searching for Thistle Street on Google. I have just started to research my family tree and it has led me to Scotland. In your post you mention number 317 thistle street Glasgow,
that address appears on my paternal grandfather's baptism records. His name was William James Woodside does the Woodside surname mean anything to you.His year of birth is 1881.

 Adshead's 1936 Street Directory lists the Somerville Memorial Church (ie Church of Scotland) at 435 Keppochhill Road.The Minister is shown as D M Mackenzie. That sounds like your chap?
