Govan Road (1968)



A great example of the flat-iron buildings we spoke about on another thread

Yeah, we really need to make a thread dedicated to those unusual buildings.

And yet another astonishing set Mustang .. great to see all those Govan/Fairfields shots, not to mention those of the Graving Dock while it still had a spark of life about it.

Superb.

Mustang

brilliant - thanks.

I was particularly interested to see the graving docks pics - with cranes etc - now a sad sight ( site ) which should surely be turned into something worthwhile.

Maybe some enterprising person could connect them to the science centre with a wee bridge - after all we've recently had 2 other footbridges which weren't exactly essential IMNSHO

btw can you do a trip forward in that time machine while you're at it and get us all some lottery numbers - preferably before this evening's draw

The first one might be Hawthorn Street, and the second is possibly St Georges Cross
with the bus heading along New City Road?

I thought the first photo might be Saracen Street just about where the library is/was
