Lauders by David C Laurie, on Flickr


First of all, thanks for the nostalgia! I just stumbled on this board and the photographs from the 70's are great. I lived in Glasgow in the seventies and I remember Lauders well - in act I was barred from there for some reason for a while while I worked next door in the Pavilion Theatre. Atholl Arms was the other local at the time and I see it has not changed much. I remember Curlers in Byres Road - it sucked as far as I was concerned, but it was often busy. There was a dive kind of a bar behind the Citz in Gorbals we used to go to, but I forget the name. It was in an old tenement.
Later on, I even designed a couple of pubs...The Granary in Pollokshaws Road was one and the other was Smiths (now Vronis) in West Nile Street. I think...Neither has changed much since then.
You've a fine forum here...
cybers

Welcome oceanrider...
Think you might be the first pub designer we have but i am pretty sure we have a few piss artists too.


Glad you made it along.

Bit of a long shot but wondering if anyone has a shot of Kellys bar that used to be on Albion street right next to the old cheesemarket, worked in Bows on High st at the time (mid 80s) and was local watering hole.

This pub in London road started life as the Volunteer Arms in 1892 changing its name to the Oxford then Waxy s Dargle, named after Dublin cobblers called Waxys who went for a day out on picnics to the River Dargle .

Waxy's Dargle? If ever an explanation was needed this was it, Calamity.
Now if it it were Maxy's Gargle....

Still hoping someone might come up with photo of Wooden Hut, North Street, Charing X and Gaiety Bar, Argyle Street, Anderston ?

If I remember correctly it became the Clyde Valley in the mid to late 80's and was the Storm Queen before that. It looked very different to the way it looks now.
calamity

Is it true that it also used tae be known as the Neuk or am I thinking of another pub over there..

The Lamppost pub at 33 Duke Street has now been demolished. It closed in January, but does anyone know when it opened? BeerInTheEvening.com rated it a 2.5/10 saying: "No atmosphere...the customers appeared to be cardboard cutouts."  

I've been working the past two days so all I have are a few sketchy night pics to go on.




The cigarette box is one of the few remnants!

Calamity....these are from Feb 2009, looks like it's due a wee fire soon..   this building must have some history attached,(farm house mibbee)  looking at the outside stairs I don't think it's always been a pub.

Mani they used to talk of that when i was in there as a fluffy faced kid learning how to drink .... Used to get sent from here to the bookies that used to be across the road from the side entrance to collect winnings of the auld guys who propped up the bar... I was thinking about this the day and how the bold boy in the bookies would walk along a raised platform changing the odds on the blackboard you could hardly see for the smoke... but for the life of me canny mind the bookies name.
