Dalmarnock Primary is a beautiful  red sandstone school which had extensions added in the early 70's. It sits in the heart of Bridgeton, Glasgow.
It has spacious accommodation with separate halls for dining, P.E. and general activities.
This is a B listed building and has been well kept over the years.

The red railings is the site where Anderson Mill stood and up at the school playground there was the janitor's red sandstone house which backed onto the Mill.   I remember seeing the Mill on fire....what a blaze!

Extract from e-mail Feb.2003, Jim McVeigh, Glasgow
"Great site memories came flooding back I lived at 56 Albany Street until I was nine, best days of my life. We used to play in Dalmarnock primary school across the road, the janny was big Dan Andrews I still remember the tram depot, and the washhouse in Ruby street.
But most of all I can still remember the names of all the families that lived in the street even now."
Webmaster : the houses where Jim lived were tenements directly opposite the school just at and beyond where my blue car is. The tram depot has been replaced with high rise flats.
