No Idea where this is I suspect it was in the Gorbals.



A few random pics of the backcourts that look like they are under renovation. The middens are surprisingly clean.  






An example of how a backcourt can look if it's well maintained, somewhere in the westend.

St Andrews Street



Willow Tearoom Sauchiehall Street


Trongate



Art Galleries and University, only the motors and the fashions have changed



This isn't from the collection but I thought I'd throw it in here as it was a postcard from the same era. Just look how lush the skwerr looks. And that large bit of open space that's now home to that modern monstrosity of a building

I suspect this is the Townhead area not much if anything survives today

That's Royston, presumably taken from the Charles Street flats. That's
Royston Road at the bottom right with Provanhill Street behind the row
of shops. The shops and attached buildings are still there, but most of
the tenements in that picture are gone. The Townhead Spire can just be
made out on the upper left. The school building middle right is the old
Royston Road primary.

Cheer's for that, my geography for that part of town is dismal. The photo looks a lot earlier than 1978 probably 1960's but it was bundled in with the other pics.

Regarding Union Street - I thought the scaffolding was always part of the decor?  

Another fantabulous set of photos Fjord!

Recently pedestrianised Buchanan Street



Looks like at least three people have cameras, the guy at the front has his pockets stuffed with papers (maps & guides?) Looks to me that they are all of one group. I wonder if it was a UG/HG type walk & was J.R. James part of the group?

The same group walking into the derelict tenement.... the girl with the mustard coloured jacket gives it away as I'm sure not more than one person owns a jacket of that colour
