At the top left you can see Pollokshields Station, Shields Station and Shields Road Station. These were amalgamated in 1925, so the map is from before then. I don't know how long they left it back then before having an updated map made, though, so the atlas might have been printed as late as 1930.

I noticed that there weren't many houses in much of the outskirts just village like districts surrounded by fields and the odd road.


I grew up in Castlemilk, I notice Mitchellhill is included in the map, though of course the flats are'nt there, then or now.

Having lived for many years in Knightswood interested in the map on page 4, it doesnt show great western road continuing beyond Anniesland cross.
Great western rd was extended to duntocher between 1924  and 1927, the housing in knightswood was erected in 3 phases in the 1920s-1930s, so it could be that this atlas could have been published early 20s
Great Western road railway station was renamed anniesland  in January 1931

The map shows Ibrox Stadium with its' original main stand with separate pavilion at the south-east corner of the ground.

These stands were pulled down in 1928.
