When reading an old Glasgow Guide book from 1872 a number of old streets were named which are now gone.

It got me thinking that this may make a good thread on here to find out if there are any old pictures featuring Glasgow's Lost Streets/Roads. Or may be there is some remnant of these streets left to see.

The ones which I came across are

Canon Street
Stirling Square
Mason Street
Balmanno Street
Great Hamilton Street
Canning Street
Jail Square
Princes Street
Main Street (West of Hope Street)
Graeme Street


Or what about those streets etc that have had a name change like St George's Place.

Do you know of any other old Glasgow Streets/Roads etc which are long gone.

Parliamentary Road of course! Long gone with only a slight footprint in the landscape of the path it took

That's the idea Stu  

Forgot about the ones which have been altered and now only the name remains but the street/road is almost all but gone. Given that I have a family connection with Parliamentary Road I should have thought about that too Thanks

There must be dozens, if not hundreds of smaller streets which have disappeared or found themselves incorporated into other streets.

Risk St in Calton is also gone. It used to be between Bain St & Green St.
Only know about it as this was the site of one of Andrew Menzies horse bus stables.

balmanno street i recognize

ran from where strathclyde uni's john anderson building is, at an angle and on a fckin steep hill, down to george st



also shows tarbett street and dean street on the way down

of course, this whole area was 'disappeared' - it was slum area anyway, then the uni redeveloped what was left
could be included that middle chunk of rottenrow, demolished, built on, hence the remaining bit onto the high st. is called rottenrow east.

1964 view, courtesy virchull michull. middle bit of rottenrow being demolished, balmanno st. running down at top right. the building top right is mentioned in the streapadair thread, became the uni's 'balmanno residence' in which i stayed '87-'89 - looked exactly the same btw
however, i now know the origin of the name!



closer 1955 view of 81 rottenrow, balmanno st.


weaver street, in the vicinity still exists, but only as a wee cul-de-sac off rottenrow east - taylor st. on the left, rottenrow east along the bottom, this view also shows lost streets, the uni's birbeck court now occupy the site

Outstanding RM



This is the type of information this thread needs. It is amazing how this part of the city has changed beyond recognition. Thanks also for including the photos

The original Killermont Street is gone... it used to run south to north while the current one runs east to west.

is killermont street (present) not roughly where parly street was?
a common link between the two was the terminus for buses was killermont. st(past)

again this was a whole area of destruction(i think the pics came from here originally  )

Vinegarhill St now the forge
along with many many others swallowed up by the same build.

Soho St Gallowgate  + many others but my family were from Soho st i was but a babe when it went. Now Crownpoint Sports

All i can think of at the minute as my head is full of espresso.

erm might be the wrong place to ask but anyone any idea what happened to the cobbles from the top of Yate St that were in the shape of a leg a boot a ball and a set of goals...
Passed the other day when i remembered about these and though picture time ... Grass everywhere no cobbles.
