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



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?


Fjord

You are quite right!  Ravenscraig is (was) over near Motherwell.  I got the name wrong.  It should have been Clydebridge steel works just outside of Cambuslang.

I can't find my old Ordnance survey map of Glasgow, but my A-Z of Glasgow (1997) shows a power station in the same general area that the steelworks was.  Checking street view on Google maps shows that the power station is no longer there.

Thanks norrie!

The camera I had was a Halina Paulette.  When there was plenty of light the shots came out really well, as can be seen from the ones on Cathin Braes and Polmadie Refuse Facility.  However in lower light levels the shots are not as good.  Some of the other photos I have posted up are like that. Hampden Park and Lennox Castle Hospital.

I will post more over time.  Just need the time to dig them out and scan them.

Hi hillmanimp, yes things are so much easier with Digital, I have loads of photos to scan but most of them are holiday snaps etc, not so much about Glasgow
Having said that I might find stuff I had forgotten about

Bye for now, norrie

Hi norrie

We bought a small digital camera a couple of years back but I still prefer using my SLR. Must admit that I do appreciate the ability to look at photos immediately and retake if necessary. With film you can't remember exactly what you did at the time.

Regards

Imp

I've been kindly informed by a lady who still lives in the 'Shaws that the little girl on the left is her mother, Catherine O'Hare, who lived at 23 Pleasance Lane, the door to which is in the picture.

Hi Norrie,

Yes, it was wonderful to get a name for one of the girls after so many years. This internet malarkey can be amazing.

Did you notice Tony Drummond's granddaughter signed up and posted on the East discussion thread. I think she might have some interesting stories about him, photos too maybe, if she is asked nicely.
