I remember Graham Square for the motor auctions they used to have in the 1970's.

Excellent pictures - thanks for posting.

In it's later years the main building had a big 'Glasgow Smile's Better' Mr Happy on the main exterior wall.  My living room window on Dunchattan St used to look right onto it.

A bit like having those pot plants and orchestras on the platform of the Nazi extermination camps.  

Maybe Dach-cow? (groan!)

I wonder of the residents of the flats that now sit on the Gallowgate side experience bovine hauntings?

Moooo!!!!

Comparing animals bred for food being slaughtered and the mass slaughter of the Jews, Gypsies, Homosexuals, British Comando's, Allied P.O.W.'s and many many more who disagreed or were not part of the great Arian way is sicker than sick.

Please go away and find a better comparrison, maybe compare the big happy smiley sign for the cows with taking a load of weans to Butlins for 2 weeks MIGHT have been a wee bit more tasteful.
