This forerunner of the A-Zs was kicking around the family home for longer than I can remember. I've no idea who published it (there's no
cover) or exactly when,
but I think some on this site may find it as interesting as I've always done.

The outlying areas are at half-scale, but each grid square is still half a mile.

I have the files on CD at higher res. (6MB each) - if anyone would like me to burn a copy for them,
PM me an address to send it to.

What an outstanding document you've got there and something that's actually hard to come by in terms of detailed publicly available early 20th century mapping of Glasgow.

Another top notch post yet again

Fantastic Streap

Notice that there are no houses in Pollok and Ruchazie.

Great to see reference to the old Lethamhill House as well

Thanks Streap

I noticed that there weren't many houses in much of the outskirts just village like districts surrounded by fields and the odd road.

This has just answered a long standing question of mine...

Just where Paisley Road West meets the railway line at Ibrox, theres a park. I've often wondered what was originally there before the new houses and petrol station as there is an old tree lined wall running along there with an old milestone tucked away

What about the "principal restaurants and tearooms" mentioned on the last page...the corn exchange was a pub until recently in Gordon street..what was its history before and what about the rest of the restaurants and tearooms..more detective work reqd I think

Well done Streapadair, another cracker !
The map answered a question that has bothered me for years.
Could a train from Central Station go to StEnoch the answer is yes
via the southside line.
Kev9, the tearoom that was in the old Corn Exchange was the
Milk Marketing Board Tea Rooms,my mother used to take me there.

streapadair,i am so glad you found this forum,tis surely a marraige made in urban heaven.the photos and the old map book have truly been fascinating.id hazzard a guess at about 1944 for the map but i think others may think different and it could run for a wee while,brilliant.

I take it you mean not directly? Anyway, you should've asked that on here...
