The one with the lady seems particularly poignant. I somehow imagine she's looking at her old tenement at the same time as she is looking at the new tower block and perhaps feeling a mixture of emotions.

I've only ever visited towers, but I have lived in a tenement. I know which I would choose.

Peace.

I'm looking for a photograph of the east side of Coburg Street (odd numbers) Where the social work building is now.
Norrie is usually good at finding photos of the Gorbals.
I would be really obliged if anyone has such a photo as I would like to make it into a calendar

Hi margaret, all the Coburg st photos I have are at corners, however I have one that I dont know where in Coburg st it is.
Pm me with your email address and I will send it to you
I do have some on the corner of Coburg st and Oxford st, if that will do instead.

Bye for now, norrie
