Right here is my question...
I have seen this millions of times (Probably not an exaggeration) and have always wondered why it was there.


Anyone any ideas as to why that cut out is there ?

It was the location (looking south) of the proposed North Eastern junction of the
M8 inner ring road.

It would've looked like this:




This was a sketch of the same location, looking north. This image only shows
(middle left) the Saint Mungos church still in place and Charles Rennie Mackintoshs
Martyrs School building (the red brick building in the original picture on this
thread) gone...




Thankfully, never completed.
