Re: Lumsden Model Dwelling, 13 Roslin Place, St George's Cro

Apparently, they were not just for working men. Some people, who could afford the small cost, stayed there in preference to having to stay at the poorhouse.

Re: Littlewoods

I just remembered (I think) the name of the music shop. Cuthbertsons. It was entered from Cambridge Street, then down a short staircase and was a basement shop. It was also accessible from Littlewoods, as I said earlier.

Re: Littlewoods

I just realised I'm rabbiting on about Littlewoods in Sauchiehall Street when you want to know where it was in Argyle Street - Sorry!! Still, maybe you will find this of interest:- Littlewoods was where Tesco is now and C&A used to be on the corner (next door) which is now Dunnes. The Littlewood...

Re: Smith & McLean Galvanisers

Have you contacted the Mitchell Library? They hold some employment records in their archive and the University also has records from some Glasgow firms.

Re: Flagpoles at Anniesland X

Does anyone know if the building has been sold?

Paddy Power is moving in to the shops and the building seems to be getting a proper makeover, roof being fixed, etc.
