Notice Oakley Terrace, named for the famous Annie?


Oakley Terrace was in fact named by a local landowner called Alexander Dennistoun, whose son, also Alexander, married Georgina, daughter of Sir Charles Oakley in 1852.

this photie is actually rottenrow east looking to high street, with the barony kirk the only thing left standing.


the brown bricks on the left are strathclyde uni's halls, the pole in the middle has 'weaver street' on it (just a wee cul-de-sac now) and the dark wood fence is where the morrin square flats were - i think original, but updated to liveable standards, again used as student accommodation.
just after the light blue gen-set you turned into collins street, close up view in the next pic



where the line of cars is, there were original tenement flats along here too. now all bulldozed and replaced by the uni's own style of residences

cheers! about the only bit of glasgow i do recognise....

incedentally, when was the school demolished? can't say i mind it at the time i was there ('87-'89), but i notice in the 2nd. pic, there's a doorway left standing. (under the 'es' in the watermark)

i know there's one on rottenrow east, cos i noticed it in november!
i wonder if the folk that use the car park are aware they're in a playground?

I saw some discussion about the school somewhere maybe a couple of years ago. I am not sure when it was demolished but James may know more. He is the Townhead expert.

I think it went in the early 1980s, as it stood in the way of the eastern flank
of the M8 ring road.....

that's a cracking pic james, thanks

weird thing is, i'd imagined the 'doorways' were preserved by being cut out of the existing perimeter walls - i.e. what you see is what was selectively left behind, but your phot shows they existed in isolation anyway



recent pic



thinking about it, what has thrown me is that these doorways are fairly elaborate structures on their own - a sort of proper archway - i automatically assumed they must have been attached to something originally!
