Utterly fantastic thread, thank you!  

On the off-chance: any photos of St George's Cross still at tenement level or Merkland Street?

Agreed.

Here's a shot I took in Dec 73, don't think I've posted it before, must have fallen through the cracks, shows the tenement directly across from the one housing the station. This one may (or may not) have been past saving, but there were plenty of fine tenements in Eglinton St, Cumberland St, Abbotsford Place, etc that weren't.

Love this photo    - also includes a now mega rare (think there are fewer than fifty registered for road use) Austin 3 Litre.

In the above photo of a tenement block with a Tradeston Tool Store . Is that the same store that was on the corner of Nelson St. and Commerce St ?

Bridge Street 2015 - not much in the first photo to create a reference point, but I think it's close enough!


Not quite Vinny! The original subway entrance would've been about 130-140ft to the right of the current entrance which now serves the opposite end of the station chamber, the original platform entrance/exit is now the emergency exit, all my Bridge Street platform photos were taken in approximately the same position.

Here's a slightly clearer shot of the current entrance:

You learn something every day!  I always assumed that the entrance to the platforms remained in the same position, or at least from the same direction, even where the entrance to the station had moved (Merkland Street/Partick and St Enoch being the obvious exceptions).

Glasgow Subway will be 120 years old on Wednesday 14th December 2016 and SPT have released this photo of one of the current subway cars in commemorative Glasgow District Subway livery.



Unfortunately I can't make it up to Glasgow this time, but I did attend the 80th anniversary in 1976 and the centenary in 1996.
