Cumberland St, Renwick U F Church (1869). The architect does not seem to be known, but he made good use of a grotesquely narrow site (the main body of the church was at right-angles to the façade, behind the church hall) This fine hall was added later, in 1914  by J J Burnet, in a modernist style which respected the calm rhythm of the Georgian tenements.   August 1973




Details of the Renwick Church.  April 1974 and September 1973

Cumberland St and Salisbury St.  The railway stations, lines and companies serving the Gorbals are the source of much confusion. This, though in Cumberland St, was not Cumberland St Station (which was in Eglinton St). According to SCRAN this was Main St Station, though some way from Gorbals Main St (where there was another station). It seems to have opened in 1872 (or 1877) and closed in 1900, but after 109 years of disuse this structure still stands. The actual station buildings are said to have been removed in 1969, but there is clearly still some sort of superstructure here.  April 1973




Cumberland St, west of Abbotsford Lane.  April 1973
