True Memories of the Gorbals

I was about 6 years old when Lily died, in her 40’s. My Dad was about the same age that I was when I lost my mother, his wife, who was in her 40’s.

I know so little about Lily’s history. Apart from the fact that she was Glaswegian, from the Gorbals, had two brothers who became policemen. In Glasgow. Dealing with the Razor Gangs and the total shite of life. I don’t even know their names.


She’d’ve been there around the same time as the man below.

Jews in Glasgow? Who’ve thunk :o)
