Robert Owen House, Bath Street

I see that hoarding has been put up around the ground floor, the building is to be converted into student accommodation.

Think it was previously used by the Cooperative Insurance, and possibly a Job Centre in the 1990s.

Re: Thatched cottages

There was a thatched pub in the Yoker area - located adjacent to the present day Lovat public house. It was known as Colin Robb's Inn after the proprietor, it lay derelict and was destroyed during the first night of the Clydebank blitz https://farm9.staticflickr.com/8313/8034154925_c92491460a_o.jpg ...

Re: george square accident

Not the time to speculating on rumours. The police have stated 6 killed, 5 females and one male.

Give their loved ones time to come to terms with what's happened.
