Trying to remember what was at the bottom of the hill... I'm having vague recollections of building called Remploy - and a motorbike shop? Possibly called Flemings? I guess Blindcraft hadn't been built yet and would probably be hidden by that corner of Wellfield Nursery wall at the right of the photo...

Springburn rd Flemington st 1977




The name of the Chemist's shop shown (on the right) was McNees. But I clearly remember a "zebra crossing" running across Springburn Rd, in front of McNee's, in the early/mid 1960's. There was also a grocer's shop (not visible in photo) next door to McNee's, on Springburn Rd. I believe it was a Cochrane's, but I could be wrong. And there was also a pub (name?) at or near the opposite corner of Flemington St and Springburn Rd. Plus a large department store opposite McNee's, on Springburn Rd. (Hoey's?). The fire station was diagonally across from McNee's, I think

Flemington st Ayr st,looking to Springburn rd 1977




If this is looking up Flemington St towards Springburn Rd, the description given doesn't seem to fit. NB Loco was definitely on the corner of Ayr St & Flemington St. And I don't think there was another street on the left of Flemington St, between Ayr St &  Springburn Rd.

Aye, I was after Rank Bajin when Elfidido lost a shoe, so I've had to rely on an old Claude Butler to get me around......
