hi, new to the board. I've tried the search function, but to no avail. Has anyone posted pictures of pollokshields/eglinton toll areas. i've found one picture which is labelled pollokshaws road but is in fact Albert Drive but that was it. any help would be appreciated.
I am specifically interested in the YMCA building on the corner of Maxwell Road and Pollokshaws Road. this then became the Royal Marinesreserve barracks for a time

Hi Markmcke, yes I have taken several photos around that area, check out Norries Urban Adventures

The Star Bar may well be included in my Gorbals thread
