Ben according to this map there were no tram tracks in Rowchester St (although there is a depot) which is why I'm suggesting that the photo is from Whitevale St looking west.
That being said, this map is from pre-1900 so it is possible tracks were laid in Rowchester St at a later date. It certainly shows a pub on the Whitevale St / Gallowgate corner so that would give precedence to the photo being from Slatefield St as you say


Rowchester Street with Tram Lines, the pub on left of photo is the Waverly Bar





Edit found another photo

The title of this was Campbellfield Street on another site, but the more I examine this I doubt it very much

 

This is how I remember the street.

Didn't know until recently that both Comelypark Street and Slatefield Street at one time extended all the way up and into Garfield Street and Bathgate Street respectively.

Anyone know when these street names were renamed?

That's a great photo of Campbellfield Street.

In the background I can just make out...A: The gable end of Comelypark St, B: My Granny's house (top floor of two-storey) which was 671 Gallowgate, the pub which you cant see for the parked car was the Victory Bar. C: The entrance to the stables in Comelypark.
In the foreground D: are the steps of a church which once stood there. Wonder if that's me walking down the street?

As a wee asides .... I remember the signs for Rowchester Street were still in-situ in the 90's outside the Jannies house the G.E.A.R landscaping was at the top and the street was long gone.

Hi Billy, the entrance to your granny's house from the Gallowgate took you into a back with turreted stairs for the tenements. The old stables like you said are in the photo with the Comelypark street gable end. I remember playing in the church prior too demolition, there was a tramp living inside and we used to call him SNOWBALL giving him a piece in jam now and again.

Gallowgate-Tylefield Street


Another superb photo Beano...!!!

I showed this to my brother to see if he knew the location of it and where it was exactly taken from. I knew the answers of course because you described it. He got it right away, he has an incredible memory unlike myself.

He said the photograph is taken from the corner of Bellfield St right outside the Caledonian Bar pub!

He went on to add this...

"If you came out of the Caledonian Bar pub, and headed towards 671, you’d pass ‘Anderson’s’ shoe shop, Davie MacPherson’s (hardware shop selling bulbs, fire-lighters, keys cut etc – great smell in his shop) and Galbraith’s, a grocer shop – fairly big by grocers shop standards. I can actually remember the guy’s face who was the manager in that Galbraith’s shop; he had a big-ish nose that was all blotchy, dark-red – like he took a good bucket. He always wore a dust coat, like the old shopkeepers did. It was either white or it was light-brown. I think it was light-brown. Oh, I almost forgot, there was a close that you went up, near to Anderson’s, that was a pawn. One flight up the stairs and into the pawn, hushed-tones, private, 4 or 5 wee cubicles. Back-then lots of folks (including Nan) used the pawn to get money. There might have been another one or two shops besides these but those are the ones I remember."

If anyone has any photos of Keyden Street and Marlow Street in Kinningpark, would be most grateful.


My family (Wilson) stayed in Keyden Street for many years, (and also Vermont St).  I can't find any photos of the actual street but I've cobbled together this aerial shot from The Mitchell together with a modern-day google satellite view for comparison. Keyden Street is well and truly buried under the M8.
