SAD TIMES WITH FOND MEMORIES OF HAMILTON.
 
In the picture above are Matthew Scullion and his younger brother Richard. The picture was taken at the steps outside the main entrance to Glenlee Primary School In 1953.
 
Three days after this photo was took, the boys, along with their other two brothers and sister were taken into care until their mid to late teens.
 
Matthew and Richard age 6 and 7 spent Six months in the then Old Folks Home, the former Poor House on Bothwell Road. Richard told Historic Hamilton,
 
“This for all that happened, was the best of times and the worst, but I will always remember the kindness of those folks in George Sreet? (jungle) who were there for us when we needed it most.
 
Memories of Burnbank, Blantyre and Whitehill ( Whistleberry Drive) will always stay with me for the rest of my life”
 
Historic Hamilton would like to thank Richard for sending us his story. If you have a story that you would like to share, then we would like to hear about it. Send a PM or contact us via Email: historichamilton@icloud.com
