The book The Dear Green Place by Archie Hind gives a very good description of working in the Glasgow Slaughter House. Well worth a read

Staying WELL CLEAR of any previous Nazi/Vegan issues in this thread, I'd thought i'd add some more photos of the area and do a few before & after comparisons. Almost all of the older pics are courtesy of CANMORE and UG Archives.

Some more pics of the Gate House in 2012 (gutted by fire a number of times by now and frequented by Jakes!)

Boundary wall looking down to junction with Duke Street.


Wrought Iron Gates remain in situ.


Along with some decorative masonry.
