Rather than a "well-maintained backcourt in the West End",I think that the photo shows a recently-improved one in the Govanhill area.The other tenement photographs would seem to be related to a visit (by Sheffield students) to view the innovative tenement rehabilitation schemes of Assist Architects and Govanhill Housing Association.

The image of the derelict Kings Cafe tenement looks like the east side of Cathcart Road in Govanhill (possibly at the Preston Street corner),which I remember being demolished in late 1977/early 1978.

Hi oakydoak, you have confirmed the information I got about the Kings Cafe and it was suggested to me that the area was Govanhill  for the other photos
