3 Elmbank Street Glasgow

Hi all from the Antipodes (Aus)

I was wondering if someone who knows Glasgow well could help me.

My mother was born at 3 Elmbank street in 1912 which I was led to believe was an unmarried mothers home, I have looked in Google Earth and Elmbank Street looks to be (have been) too upmarket for this, but number 3 is now a vacant block, could anyone please inform me what was at number 3 in the past.
Many Thanks in anticipation,

Scotty Hulme

The previous block in that location was the Strathclyde regional headquarters... 50s/60s built. Previous to that will take a little more research I think

I've had a look at the 1913-14 valuation rolls and according to it, number 3 Elmbank street was a house with two tenants.  I'm guessing the houses were similar to the adjacent houses.

If you search, there will be photos of the Scout's HQ and the Guide's HQ on the web which will have been very similar. Also the Quaker Meeting house around the corner in Elmbank Crescent is also of a similar style.

The Guide building seemed to be in nearer original condition when I had a look round during them a Doors Open Day a couple of years back

Think this was a specific question Alan rather than the usual general area photos or info that is usually required.
