Hi Linda,you're a treasure.
Thanks for more info!I went with my daughter today to Braehead,she was taking pc for healthcheck.I thought
i'll browse bookshop as i may just find book there!Then! we noticed closing down sale in sportshop.Next thing we knew it was time to get kids from school
Never mind,i'll phone tomorrow and enquire about book!In the run up to Christmas
those kind of books,should be on shelves.I quite often get birthday or Christmas pressies of Paisley books.I would think Maryland house is probably Nazareth House now.I'll see what i can find out.Thanks again for all your help!
You can buy this any many other 'Old Glasgow' books in the same format from Bookworld in Braehead and Browns newsagent on the Paisley Road West (across the road from the Argosy pub) has the whole range.

The Sisters of Nazareth arrived in Cardonald in 1902 and were initially based at Maryland House which (when the book was published) was still standing behind the Social Security offices at the corner of Paisley Road West and Corkerhill Road. Nazareth House was opened in 1906.

My great grandparents owned or managed the Halfway House Inn. They were originally from the Islands - Skye and Islay I think.
My Dad has a photograph of that part of PRW showing the Inn. Don't know much more beyond that just now.

Hi Alimac, Could you possibly contact me about the Halfway House Inn and your grandfather that once owned it.
