The main interest of this shot, looking across the eastern end of George St, is that it shows the High Street Goods Station.  April 1973

High St at Rottenrow. This imposing baronial structure was a hydraulic pumping station for the Glasgow Waterworks. It operated from 1895 to 1964, and was demolished  few months after I took this in April 1973

The Townhead area bounded on the south by the Rottenrow and on the east by Castle St, densely populated up the the mid 1960s, was almost totally cleared, some of it for the M8 and the Townhead interchange, some for the expansion of the university, and the rest because . . . well, just because. Only a handful of buildings survive the Barony Church, Provand's Lordship, St Mungo's Church and retreat,  and the Martyrs' School (saved, only just, by the Mackintosh connection) are all I can think of. In 1973 the devastation though widespread was not quite complete, and I set out to record such fragments as were left.

Rottenrow, north side, east of Collins St. The Townhead School survived until comparatively recent times, but is now a car park for Strathclyde Uni, who own the Barony Church and hold graduation ceremonies in it.  March 1973



McLeod St. The buildings at the far end, in Collins St, were the Collins Institute and the Townhead Baths and steamie, to which the  chimney belonged.  April 1973

Castle St, east side, north of Cathedral St.  This baronial fantasy was built as the Royal Blind Asylum in 1881. The Royal Infirmary later took it over and built the plain northern extension, which has now been replaced by a multi-storey car park, though the original building is still there. July 1973



Castle St, west side, north of Parson St. The Casino was not a casino but a cinema, apparently disused (unless they were showing a film called Vote Hollywood Labour).  March 1973
