Cumberland Street looking east with the former Cumberland Arcade next to St Francis church in the distance. The arcade and the tower blocks on the left are now demolished as are the left hand pair of those blocks on the right. New housing replaces the wasteland in the foreground

Pollokshaws Road at its junction with Cumberland Street. The Brazen Head pub still overlooks this busy junction ... but only buses have been able to travel down from Devon Street along Pollokshaws Road for nearly 20 years

The same junction looking north towards the city centre. The lorry and van would be fined for driving in a bus lane if they tried this today. The tower blocks at Sandyfaulds Place and Norfolk Court which once dominated this view have now all been demolished with the last block being blown down earlier this year

Abbotsford Place looking north was once lined with beautiful blonde Georgian tenements, which has they survived the wholesale demolition of the 1960's and 70's would be very aspirational properties in the present day. The wall was once part of the playground of Abbotsford Public School, but has since been demolished for another block of flats. Only the railway bridge remains from the past

Abbotsford Public School was built in 1879 to a design by H&D Barclay and is one of the few remaining buildings of the original Gorbals (although technically this area is called Laurieston). The school had recently closed when this image was taken, with the pupils being relocated up to Cuthbertson Street in Govanhill
