Right, grab your swimmers, and your bucket and spade, it's 1935 and we're off for a day at the children's paddling pool in Kelvingrove Park.

The pool, a favourite with local weans in the summer months, also provided a slippery sliding spot in winter. And, with sandpits to play in, and lots of grass to run, loll about, or picnic on, it was a popular meeting spot for local mums. Although, heaven help any kids who trod sandy feet into their mum's well-swept hallways!

By sundown each day, the pool was a veritable bowl of 'verruca soup'!

Sadly, now long gone, the paddling pool was later replaced by a children's playground.
