Springburn residents et al. in Springburn, Glasgow - between in the middle of the 1870's and in the middle of the 1880's

from W.F. Frame Tells His Own Story, page 39:

Before leaving my Springburn experiences, I may say I gave an annual concert, which was always a big event. The entire district recognised that entertainment as something worth attending, for it was quite a gala night. The Auchinairn Brass Band always turned out and played from that district right over Balgray Hill to the Hydepark Hall.

All the local “stars” of the city assisted me to make the concert a big success, which it always was. The hall in which it was held was the cooking depot of the district, and the artistes dressed in the boiler room.
