hi, new to the board. I've tried the search function, but to no avail. Has anyone posted pictures of pollokshields/eglinton toll areas. i've found one picture which is labelled pollokshaws road but is in fact Albert Drive but that was it. any help would be appreciated.
I am specifically interested in the YMCA building on the corner of Maxwell Road and Pollokshaws Road. this then became the Royal Marinesreserve barracks for a time

There are a couple of aerial photos


Norrie's Pollokshields photos are here

Norrie's Govanhill photos are here

I am sure he will have covered Eglinton Toll within one or both of these threads

This any use? I've a few others in the vicinity.

that is a fantastic picture. and shows my two front windows now. they turned the barracks into flats after lying dormant for 10 years

A couple from a rainy day in August 2008

Hi Markmcke, yes I have taken several photos around that area, check out Norries Urban Adventures

The Star Bar may well be included in my Gorbals thread Forum Index -> Glasgow in the 1970s
