Interesting People

Regarding your spot about interesting people that lived in Strathbungo. In 1977 my family bought 39 Regent Park Square from the architect Jack Coia. Gillespie, Kidd and Coia an interesting architectural company.
Incidentally, No.37 was owned by the Kidds and I think they were linked to the same practice.

(Sincere apologies to Jonathan for not posting this earlier; it was submmtted in August 2019! One for future research, although it was actually Jack’s younger brother John who lived at 39 Regent Park Square. William Kidd died in 1929, so not sure what his link to No 37 would be. Anyone else know anything?- Ed)

    Thank you for posting and correcting, I was only 7 when we moved into 39. The interior was very interesting with black velvet and gold wallpaper, bark surrounds and other quirks.
    I really enjoyed living in Strathbungo, and also have plenty of memories of the area.
