Edit Robson Street
We had the tiny hairdressers shop there we were next door to Findlays the painters and a newsagent ran by two old ladies.
One of our clients was a lady called Margaret. I think she was the manageress of Frames coffee shop in Queen St
Robson Street - Paisley? I am trying to track down where Robson Street use to be? can you help? My grandmother was born there in 1900. Any information would be useful. Cheers, Robson St, Govanhill Yes I remember Robson Street - I lived almost directly across the road from it as a child in the early 1960s at 43 Aikenhead Road.
I remember a dairy there also. Robson Street ran onto Morgan Street.
M MaddenI too would like to know where Robson Street was as my mother's sister was born there. M Madden seems to inicate that it ran into Aikenhead Road at No 43. Where was No 43. Can anyone draw me a rough map? Jim Bell My sister Marie Cowan worked in the hairdressers in Robertson St Robson Street ran on a North-South line aprox. 100 yards East of Cathcart Road where it joins with Aitkenhead Road. There also used to be a small newspaper shop a short distance along it that sold the 'Jolliboy' water-pistols so popular among the children in the late 1940's. I had a top flat on the corner of Robson st and Morgan st. Downstairs was a wee shop run by a guy called Alec. The place was condemmed in 1972 and they sent me to Castlemilk; I lasted a week and went to Edinburgh. I now live in Tasmania Australia.
