I did not know that the bandstand in Queens Park had also gone. Many are the times I enjoyed myself there.
One highlight was listening to Paul Robeson the famous singer.
Regarding Sannox Gardens I presume the building referred to was the block next to Staffa Street.
That tenement was most certainly in a better condition than Crinan Street.
Returning to the piece about the bandstand I and all my childhood pals went to see the bands and the concert parties at least once a week which I am certain kept us out of mischief and gave us an appreciation of music and a love of the theatre.
Those far of days of the 1940's were a time for simple pleasure and sadly todays children and adults want something different.
