I've seen this picture before somewhere on the net and it was described as - Crow Rd, 1968

Although personally I would have reckoned a little earlier looking at the cars and commercial vehicles, perhaps c1960?

Gallowgate at Bain st, best answer yet I will pass that on to my contact and see what he makes of it

Small lean too tobacconists building looks like the building which was later to become Johnny's Tattooist at the corner of MacFarlane Street, with the Corunna Bar (now Bar 67) a couple of yards along from it. Coming further east the shop at the corner looks very much like the wallpaper and decorators shop which used to be there until the late 1980's plus the pub further east could be the old Betty's Bar. I am sure the shop at the bottom right hand corner of the photo was Tobias's Café...

According to one of the elderly members of our Day Centre who lived in nearby Well Street the Hairdresser shop was known as Joe The Barbers who caused a bit of a stir with the City Council. Seems he was refused a Sunday licence on several occasions and protested that 'it was discrimination . Claiming if he was Jewish he would be allowed to open on a Sunday.' Seems the pub further down the Gallowgate was also known as the Land Inn at one time.

Also the steeple in the distance is without any doubt the top of the Tron Steeple.

Just a quibble, but I'm not so sure about that - the fine (refurbished) tenement at the corner of Little Dovehill used to have a steeple which so closely resembled the Tron that it must have been modelled on it. Doesn't affect the i.d. of course.
