Renfrew St, north side between Renfield St and Hope St. If this building was ever symmetrical (and old maps show a school at the vacant east end) it must have been very handsome indeed.  November 1973




McPhater St. Cowcaddens United Free Church (Campbell Douglas and Sellars, 1872) was under severe threat at this time, but it survived to become the Piping Centre, with its adjacent manse the Piper’s Hotel. The palazzo-like building beyond (Orient House, by W J Anderson, who also built Napier House in Govan) survives too, now flats. In fact, in a reversal of the normal order, only the tower block has gone.  October 1973




Corner of Dunblane St and Dobbie's Loan, Dobbie's Loan School, later an annexe of Stow College.   March 1974

Corner of Airdrie St and Cowcaddens St. The Kiwi Bar was a busy local, owned by two ex-Navy  stewards who named it in memory of their many voyages to the Antipodes.  October 1975




Cowcaddens St, southeast of Airdrie St.  March 1974




Cowcaddens St leading to the top of Buchanan St. Buchanan St Station had been just round to the left at the far end of this block, and across the road.  October 1975




Corner of Cowcaddens St and  Renfield St.  Shops in Cowcaddens St, from the left: Picture Framing / the Loughswilly Bar / Fishing Tackle Cafaro Bros. / Agent for all Durex requisites / Brownsville Electronics.   October 1975
