The Guardian and the Evening times are the worst offenders i have ever come across in the name of Lazy Journalism... Both are treated equally with contempt and now BBC and STV are getting in on the act with Flickr accounts and buried amongst the group rules is the clause...

All images submitted to the group shall be allowed unrestricted use via related companies and third parties deemed appropriate by us ... Free stuff for the commercial sector anyone submitting photos to their weekly galleries seriously needs their heads looked.

Has anyone ever seen a street level pic of the St Enoch Hotel from North Drive (not St Enoch Square)? You can just make it out on the left of Strapadair's shot here...


It snaked the length of St Enoch Station up to Stockwell Street and would have made for an impressive canyon at the back of Debenhams. Did anyone commit it to film prior to the bulldozers? Image posted by Glasgowken.

No picture I'm afraid - but I remember walking along it as a small boy. And you're absolutely right, a 'canyon' would best describe it because of how dark it was due to the tall buildings on either side. If memory serves me correctly a lot of the services for the hotel went in and out of various doors, I seem to remember lots of big basket hampers on wheels being loaded into the backs of trucks, probably washing.

It was alive with people coming and going into the building, men having a swift fag, deliveries being unloaded and lots and lots of noise with staff  shouting to each other over the others.

Thanks Fireman, good to see the memories are still there at least.

St Enoch really would make a better northern terminus of HSR than High Street, by 2033 (or whenever the Glasgow leg gets going) the mall ought be up for demolition anyway.
