291 Greenhead St. Unless the photo is unintentionally distorted, that wall is bulging rather badly. Maybe these fine tenements had to come down, but what I canít understand is why the site is still vacant, with its pleasant outlook across the river to Richmond Park.




 That's one helluva bulge in that wall. Dunno why the site hasn't been built on
since Isn't the Argyle railway line right underneath there? Might've been causing
the subsidence?

Glenfield St, from where Warnock St had been.  This little enclave, a square (or parallelogram) formed by Alexandra Parade (N), James Orr St (E), Warnock St (S), and Glenfield St (W), was in process of being obliterated. The extension to the Royal Infirmary now occupies the site.   March 1973


Excellent. HH will be interested in this one.

Streapadair What a mine of informative photographs you have turned out to be.
I am sure myself and everyone on here fully apprieciates the time taken scanning and uploading these wonderful collections must take you.
Please keep them coming some memories returned some buildings i never knew existed and some empty spaces filled.
Thank you so much for sharing.

Ummm. Anyone got any idea? Iíve no note for it, but it must have been somewhere between Yate St and the Eastern Necropolis entrance. I thought it might be the cemetery gatehouse, †but itís definitely not the same building, nor do the pillars or railings match. Over to UGís collective knowledge. †March 1976






Holywell Street School Perhaps ... Kinda remember playing in a very similar building as a Barrowfield Sprogg if i remember correctly it was near the gallowgate end on the opposite side from the Cardowan Creamery.

Not only are the photographs astounding, but once again you have provided captions (both witty & informative) to match. Wonderful.

Interesting platform soles on the guy with the cane †
