Carrying on nicely from Alex's last photo above, here's Glasgow (Jamaica) Bridge, circa 1965:-

What a great photo    

This would be ideal for a past present. Looks like it as taken from the roof of the building on the corner of Bridge Street/Carlton Place.

The old Paisley's Shop looks great

Nice. I particualrly admire the appalling camera quality - adds a real "Glasgow feel" to proceedings....

Cheers Alex: yes, I think it was taken from the old Bank of Scotland building, but I think the view would be obscured by trees now.

I'm sure I've seen even older photos taken from the same location, so it should be possible to do a 'Past - Not-Quite-Present' comparision.

I think it was the Royal Stuart Hotel it must have been the only modern hotel in Glasgow at the time until they built the Holiday Inn latterly the Marriot on Argyle Street. I used to think it was well plush when I was a nipper but apparently it's a bit of a cheap dive nowadays.
