2 of my main families lived in Thistle Street and worked in the surrounding area - although the lines were never to mix until the marriage of my parents.

:o My GGP's lived at 317 in 1884.

I'll need to dig out census etc and see how long they lived there.  I do have a few addresses in the Gorbals for them though.

The area is on the south side of the River Clyde and on the verge of the area known as the Gorbals - primarily you have houses and light industrial units in the area.

Visit Google Maps or any other online mapping source type in "Thistle Street, Glasgow" and you should get a view of the place.

Just put Thistle Street, Glasgow in to Google Maps Street View and you'll see how it looks today. Nothing like what it would have looked like in the early 20th century.

If you're in Glasgow a visit to The Mitchell Library may show more photographs as it looked then.

Unfortunately the Mitchell Library only has one image online of Thistle Street which was highlighted in an earlier post click here for link to  image.

The whole Gorbals area has undergone considerable "regeneration" since that photograph was taken and has been subjected to at least 2 complete rebuilds to come to todays look.

Would it have to be the above Thistle street or could it be another at Kirkintilloch, Glasgow, Lanarkshire...Google maps comes up with this location too for Thistle Street Glasgow....???   On the birth certificate it says in the " district of Gorbals in the burgh of Glasgow"

It would have been the Gorbals Thistle Street - Kirkintilloch is a few miles away, to the North of the City
