St Andrew’s suspension bridge, with the colossal United Co-operative Baking Society building in McNeil St / Adelphi St.  September 1973



The river upstream of the King’s Bridge.  April 1973.  The neat tenements in Benthall St and Turnlaw St are still there, though barely recognisable after a radical facelift, and look a pleasant place to live. The six-storey building was a bonded warehouse at 546 Ballater St.

A winter afternoon.  December 1975



The Polmadie footbridge, with Greenhead St and Newhall St.  April 1973



The site of Allan’s Pen, with Rutherglen Bridge.  November 1973.  I’m not sure which, if any, of the buildings survive.
