Great photos!

I saw you had a couple from Cathkin Braes, so I hope you don't mind I add a couple

Taken spring 1971.  Kodak date on the back of them is May 1971

Smashing pics Imp.
I love it up there but the last time I was there - maybe 12 or so years ago with the wee yins we were the only people there and it was a sunny Saturday like in your photos.

Glad you liked them!

Though I didn't do it intentionally, the one photo just overlaps the other by a bit, so one could make a panorama out of them.  Should be easy these days with the software that is available.

I used to go up there from time to time.  When the weather was clear you had a great view over the city, usually better in winter because there was less haze.

Hi Jock

Many thanks for splicing them together!   It looks great.  Much better than the two individual shots.  One of the cases where the whole is better than the sum of the two parts

Thanks for posting that Cathkin braes view hillmanimp.

In 30 odd years I've never seen the Polmadie refuse incinerator chimneys belching smoke but you've captured one of them in action in the lower right hand side of your photo. Also the cooling tower at Pinkston power station is also just visible on the distant horizon.

I hate to disappoint you but that smoke isn't coming from the Polmadie refuse works.  

The high rise blocks of Toryglen are roughly in the middle of the picture.  From the left, there are 3 whitish ones, then 4 greyish ones and then 2 whitish ones.  The Polmadie stacks are between the first and second blocks from the left, of the group of 3.  I had to use a magnifying glass on the original to see them.  No smoke I'm afraid

The smoke in the picture seems to come from round about the Ravenscraig area.

However, I did say that I hate to disappoint you, and you want smoke from the Polmadie stacks.  Well you got smoke from the Polmadie stacks


View from Croftside Ave.  No date on the photo but must have been about 70-71.





The polmadie stacks are 1/3 off the way from the LHS.  The smoke isn't so easy to see on the scan, but is on the photo.

And







Sorry about the dog!  It means the rest of the photo is blurred.  Date on photo Aug 71.

Cheers for that mate although I've had a closer look at the pic and I reckon it's the chimney at Dalmarnock power station.

Wouldn't Ravenscraig be miles away to the east and out of view in the photo?
