John Knox St, west side above Wishart St.  April 1973



Glenfield St, from where Warnock St had been.  This little enclave, a square (or parallelogram) formed by Alexandra Parade (N), James Orr St (E), Warnock St (S), and Glenfield St (W), was in process of being obliterated. The extension to the Royal Infirmary now occupies the site.   March 1973

Looking up Edmund St from Dunchattan St to Cardross St. (This is a best guess as my note here is deficient. Feel free to correct me, Dennistonians.)   January 1974




Westercraigs, Blackfriars Parish Church (Campbell Douglas, 1878). It lost a spire from the south tower in the 1960s (compare with VM photo), and more recently the contemporary manse.  January 1974

Craigpark, east side.   September 1978




Craigpark, Regent Place U F Church. Built in 1878 - congregation left in 1960 - building used as an assembly hall for Whitehill School - school closed in 1977 - empty church burnt down in 1983. A sad story for such a handsome church. Two brick villas now occupy the site.  January 1976.

Bellfield St railway bridge.  January 1976




Wellpark St, north side. The fine Italianate building, which survives along with its associated Trinity Duke St Church, was built in 1867 as the Wellpark Institute, a Free Church school (possibly financed by the nearby Wellpark Brewery), later became Wellpark School, and is now Wellpark Enterprise Centre.  June 1975
