Swinton Road - a Memory of Baillieston.
My great-grandfather James Kirkwood lived in Swinton Road until his death in 1933, leaving a widow Catherine and six children. My grandmother moved there in 1934 until 1936 when Catherine died. They are buried at the churchyard opposite. My grandmother was Martha Kirkwood. I have been in this flat several times, my mother's cousin still lives there.
