Thanks James  

Well after having a mosey on thru them i am once again struck by the wonderous views recorded.
Well done that man for giving us an insight to parts of the city we were too wee to travel to ourselves.
I don't know if it was all down to bad timing or what but it gives a sombre reflection on the city at a time when it was obviously changing.
Most of the glasswork is smashed tenements empty though one photo in particular caught my attention.
All around them it looks like the day after the apocalypse but there is 2 weans ice lollies and a fackin POODLE   ...

as they say
"wha's Like Us"

Parlane`s at the corner used to do a pick-up for washing overalls for the surrounding industries ie: british steel etc, next door at butchers was where we got our rolls, next bar one is where yours truly got his haircut as a laddie and as an incentive you got a lollipop if you were good   further up was a newsagents and the two-tone shop on the corner was a bookies T.V. Shields i think it was called, in the middle of that second block was the Co-op (remember ma stamps my mum would say) and the end of the second block was a pub (The Killearn) I think.
The other side of the road was mostly demolished at that time as you can see by the shadows, the half shadow was a bookies, then a gap then tenements then a pub on its own then a large expanse of spare ground all the way to Houston St. It seems like yesterday I done all that, so thanks for the memories Streapadair

Thanks for the feedback, guys, I'm having to squeeze my head through the door sideyways now.

Great detail, Scary, love reading that sort of thing.

Cybers, aye, that wee poodle was priceless, more Grosvenor Square than Govan.

Carmichael St at Govan Rd. A very Thomson-esque tenement, possibly by the Master himself. Part of Copland Rd School can be seen.   February 1974



I lived in Carmichael Street from 1964 till 1974/5, and I have been waiting to see photos of it and surrounding streets for a long time.  The pic above as I remember, the tenements were knocked down after the bad storms and instead of cutting through the closes to get to school, we could just walk across the spare ground :)

Vicarfield St and Carmichael St, The Wid-dow’s, with its apparently detached lounge bar.   July 1975


Fantastic, that pub was just across the road from us, my dad drank there as his local and my mum used to go into the lounge bit, I used to stand out there waiting for pocket money from him lol

Govan Rd and Copland Rd, St Columba's UF Church (James Thomson, 1870)    June 1975


That was one amazing building, I never remember it being occupied all the time I was there.  The number 4 bus stop was right there , the bus I got to secondary school in Drumoyne, Govan High, and many a time in the rain, the massive slugs that used to slither out that place was bloody scary. There was a paper shop next to it where I would get sweets, but don't remember the name.

Govan Rd, north side at Stag St. Another Rangers footballer’s pub.   July 1975


Along there beside Stag Stret was a book shop where you could take your old comics in and get a bunch of newer ones..a kind of swap, I don't remember if I had to pay, but if i did it must have been peanuts.
