You wouldn't know that unless you had met them prior to being institutionalised.

Epilepsy, being a single mother, or an arsonist were some reasons as to why people ended up in an institution.

I can't remember where I got this link, so apologies if it was pinched from someone here.

Anyway I thought it might be of interest on this thread:

Hi,

Has anyone ever heard of Bellahouston Hospital? I have a rellie who died there in 1926. I think it was used for soldiers during the first world war. All searching for information has drawn a blank.

Cheers,
Merlot

Yes Merlot, I have heard of Bellahouston Hospital, but all I know about it is that it was a convalescent hospital and I have no idea how I know that.

Don't know much about Bellahouston hospital except that it stood on the site that is now
occupied by the sports centre. I take it, it originally made way for the Empire Exhibition.
I'm sure I've came across a photo of it somewhere. Will rack my brains trying to remember
where and post up a link.

Came across this -

Bottom centre seems to show a rather grand looking arched entrance to
Southern General Hospital. It must have been pulled down before my
time. Anyone remember it?

Ramor, I've been puzzled over this picture of Linthouse since you first posted it. As regards the rather grand looking arched entrance, I have just the faintest notion that I have seen it before.

The part that puzzles me most of all is the date when this picture was taken. Am I right in assuming the street that runs south off Govan Rd., adjacent to the east side of the hospital grounds, is Moss Rd? If it is, then one should see a break in the row of tenements on the south side of Govan Rd, just east of Moss Rd....the break being the part of the row of tenements that was bombed and is now occupied by a petrol stn. Your picture shows no such break, so the picture must be older than 13th March1941. The ships shown in the stocks at Stephens' yard, and the lack of vehicular traffic, supports this pre-March '41 date.

My argument is based largely on my having correctly identified the correct location of Moss Rd. and I'm not 100% certain that i have.

Yep, that's definately Moss Road to the right had side of the picture. The three
houses to the left of the old entrance are still there. Thanks with the info about
the date.

Looking for some comfirmation, (or otherwise), on this as I think that VM has got
the location of where the following photograph looking towards Merryflats is wrong.

http://tinyurl.com/3dwfu8

I don't think this is Moss Road as I reckon the photo was taken from a house in
Ardshiel Road, Drumoyne. Overlooking what is now Pirie Park. If I'm right, the
first hedgerow still exists seperating the "Pirie" from Davislea Old Folks Home
and Langlands School. The second hedgerow, (now gone), would be what today
is still called Farm Lane from the days when it was part of Millers Farm. The
houses beyond the fields would be the four-in-a-blocks on Langlands Road, with
the second hedgerow and the group of trees at the bottom leading out to
Burghead Drive. They give the date as circa 1910? but I'm not too sure. I know
that a few members where originally from around these parts so any help would
be most appreciated and hopefully put a smug grin on my face. 8)

Unless of course I get proved wrong. :oops:
