Eglinton St, west side between Cook St and Wallace St, after some recent demolition. The Coliseum Bar was notable for a collection of photographs on display, showing stars of music-hall and cinema who had popped in for a quick one after a show or a premiere at the Coliseum across the road. I suppose the roof in the foreground must have belonged to the old Bridge St subway station.  December 1973




The Great Synagogue in South Portland St, which opened in 1901 and had only recently closed.  July 1973

Langbank St and Eglinton St. Langbank St enjoyed the distinction of being the shortest street in Glasgow, being only the depth of a tenement block long. No-one lived in it, but I think a scrappy operated from the railway arch which terminated the street.  September 1973




same, demolition imminent.  May 1974

Eglinton St, east side, south of Cavendish St.  August 1973




Eglinton St, east side at Devon St. In January 2000, after celebrating its year as European City of Architecture and Design, 1999, Glasgow ruthlessly destroyed one of Burnet's few remaining churches, the French Gothic Eglinton Congregational Church, 341 Eglinton Street, which included the destruction of pairs of fine Mossman angels and dragon gargoyles (1866). [Glasgow - City of Sculpture]   June 1975

Eglinton St, east side, south of Devon St.  The majestic Queen’s Park Terrace,  Thomson’s finest tenement block, built 1856-60.  One of the most notable in a city of tenements, it was A-listed,  but  was allowed to fall into dilapidation, was condemned, and in the face of much protest the council went ahead with its demolition in 1981.  August 1973.




Eglinton St, east side, south of Turriff St.  August 1973

Pollokshaws Rd at the Toll.  September 1973
