Cant find where I grew up but my 1st house/flat over-looked here, it was the top dancer right on the corner and had great views over into the cottage on Millbrae Road and also into the crecent.
It even got a bit of expossure in "Comfort and Joy" as "Dickie Birds" (Bill Patterson) flat was up in Millbrae Court.
The cottage that stands at the foot of Millbrae Road at Tantallon Road belonged to the owner of the one time mill that stood there. Hence "Millbrae"
The mill was extremely big and it was sited on the banks of the Cart many many many moons ago.
The mill stretched from Tantallon Road and followed the banks of the cart down towards Langside where the river begins to bend.
An opticians in Shawlands had a picture of my flat hanging on their wall, taken around 1901 showning a nanny pushing a pram over Millbrae Rd towards Millbrae Crescent, after a bit of patter they kindly let me have it.
This here picture shows where I live now and how it used to look before the developers moved in with their bull dozers.
Nice water tower shot though but I see that some rather large Indian has fired an arrow at it. and missed!
