I visited the Clachan Bar, Baillieston Road, Garrowhill yesterday afternoon to meet a group of gents who meet there every Wednesday to play dominoes. Alexander Maxwell (Maxie), Raymond Livingston, Tommy Moran, Bill Brown, Bob (Robert Adams and Sammy Fleming. We all had a good chat about Glasgow Pubs.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you guys for your time and effort spent with me and well done the the bar staff. This pub is well worth a visit.

Raymond Livingston a former driver for Dunn and Moores gave me great stories and verified many pub names for me. 85 year old Tommy Moran was brought up in the Gorbals area, he didn't drink much then but could remember many of the pub names, not to say he drinks a lot now. Ha Ha.

Alexander Maxwell brought up in the east end also gave me loads of pub names from the past. Cheers Maxie for getting in touch.

These guys age between 62 and 85 and have great memories of forgotten Glasgow pubs in the east end and the Gorbals. Cheers guys I had a great time.
