Maryhill, an area of Glasgow, was the place that I grew up in until leaving for university – but not going far 🙂
Maryhill Road used to have trams that would fun all the way to the city centre – this was well before my time. My Dad had an old painting or photograph (I can’t remember which) in the hallway that depicted a Maryhill tram going under the aqueduct right outside out house. His photograph was very similar to the image below . Our house was to the left of the photograph where you see the two bollards, there was a gate and our house was up the path. This photograph shows an area that is very well known to me although the houses opposite were grassland up towards the canal and started about 100 further to the right before the bridge when I was young.
