Aye, I remember it being Burton's too,but thought that was more the mid 70's.
I remember going to crazy cuts with ma maw,needed something for school and had trouble getting my size.The shop front was yellow with black lettering and it was at the end of a block.

Hi everyone,
New to the site, lived in Tradeston in the 50's (Paterson street) moved to Castlemilk, then back to Tradeston (Centre street) Emigrated to Toronto,
love the entire site and it's not with rose coloured glasses, certainly a lot of Glasgow was past it's "Sell by date" but did it deserve the "Carpet Bombing" it recieved? Keep up the GREAT work.

Does anyone know what street the Douglas Mission stands on,if it still exists?
Want to grab some pics as there is some old family association with the building.
I can remember that it used to be signposted on the Paisley Road West,but not exactly sure where that was.

When you look at the craftsmanship of the stonemasons (the inside was beautiful as well) someone should have been shot for allowing that wonderful building to be demolished,for years it was used as a car park
shameful
