Louis here is a link to the North Kelvinside thread which contains a number of older pics of Oran Street and the surrounding area. I lived in Sanda Street (previously called Gower Street) which is visible in the pic of yours above. Any specific questions on the area or its streets and buildings?

Hi Louis
I've been looking for photos of this area as well. I stayed at 60 Fernie St. and have been looking for photos of Fernie St. Oran St. and Vernon St. to use as references for paintings of the area. Haven't seen the ones that you posted before....getting quite emotional

Maryhill Road Opposite top of Oran St.
I've started one of the opposite side of the road, with a 33 bus coming up Oran St. and turning onto Maryhill Road....only to realise that I don't have a feference for the building at the top of the street beyond the Cabar Feidh bar!

I just found your picture when browsing the internet, I was actually born in that tenement block, directly above the bus, so found it very interesting. born there 1947, so some years before the picture, I have a couple of neighbours in Canada who would probably like to print a copy, is there any chance of emailing me a full size jpeg  ? Thanks dave
