It was clearly a toilet block but I dunno if it was attached to anything or just
a stand alone public dump station.

Because it leads onto the car park behind Celtic Park, I fancifully thought it might've be an old turnstile entrance

Aye, it does have the appearance of summat like a turnstile, but no, it never was.

They never closed these till about 1982 they were the most rank pish honkin bogs I ever had the misfortune to use on the way to school. Think on the last year they were only open on match days. The little bit of tarmac that stood behind it was a council works as the wifes uncle lived on the other side of Dalriada Street behind these cludgies.

Site of the Mini Barras and a row of shops destroyed by fire in recent times.

the area around Trongate and Candleriggs is full of abandoned and disused buildings. Quite sad really such a neglected part of the city centre.

Wouldn't try to get in there. Guys in yellow coats patrol the site all the time.

Just a baw hair away from me. Didn't know it had closed. On a brighter note, the garages on Hunter Street are getting gutted and kitted out, so not long before they are back in use. I had a wee look in today, but didn't have my camera with me...  
nightfly

I did see some workmen taking stuff in to the garages at hunter street about 3 weeks ago. I thought they were getting used for storage. Will be nice to see some life in that street again.

Well was in here today nothing worth shooting entry was pretty straight forward big shed few offices and it even got farcical when Erin D'ors set the alarm off by pressing one of the shutter buttons and the thing went up.

Sat tight, Secca a no show had a bit of a rummage and then left... as we were leaving a mobile guard showed up had a quick scout of the perimiter and buggered aff.

Good God. This is good news. How did you manage to get in? I assume the lesson everybody needs to heed is don't touch anything when you're in there.
