I have traced my great-grandparents arrival to the US in 1880, but am getting lost in a sea of "Annas" "Elizabeths" and "Johns" searching beyond that point.

red mail 42 Sandyhills Street in 1906
On my grandparents' marriage certificate, it says they were both living at 42 Sandyhills Street, Shettleston at the time of their marriage in 1906. He was a coal miner and she a domestic servant. I have looked for this address on old maps but can find nothing about the house that was there. Does anyone in this list know or can anyone tell me where I might look to find out more about this address? I'm thinking it must have been a rooming/boarding house.
