Re: No-Go Areas in Glasgow. Serious ones.

It seems that Pollokshields is a disproportunately no-go area in relation to violence, rape and murder if you are an ethnically native Scot or similar. The Kris Donald Murder, the murder of Irishman William McKeenan and the rape of a working girl by two Sikh Holy Men tells us that if you are a nati...

Re: random question

It was off Cathedral Street. Long gone. What's there now is the University of Strathclyde. The building at the end of the terrace was Canning Place School.

Re: Free Sweets! (for your feedback)

I had been wondering whether Aldomak were still in existence as I walked past their wee factory on Gower St. the other day and noticed it was empty and up for sale. Nice to see they're still up and running and hopefully thriving.

Re: Best Place to Spot Urban Deer

I'm pretty sure this has been dealt with before. I think there may well be a thread lying around on this very topic.

Re: Former Glasgow Libraries Now Gone

Mosspark used to have a (small) public library, in Arran Drive. It is now a private house. Yes and I hink the replacement was Cardonald. Not quite. Cardonald had a small library of its own which opened in the 1940's and lasted until 1971, when it was replaced by the current Cardonald Library which ...

Re: Glasgow Parks

George Parsonage wrote a book some years ago about his father Ben called 'Rescue His Business, The Clyde His Life'. I remember reading it - and it was well worth reading - but I don't know whether I still have it. The book may not be in print any more but if you're interested you might be able to fi...

Thanks Robert.

Some nice old Leyland Titans on there. I remember them with affection. They were great buses to drive.

Re: Winston Churchill's Funeral

Many thanks for this Hollowhorn. I remember watching the funeral on television, in black and white of course, and I don't think I have ever seen this colour footage. Seeing the crane jibs being lowered is, as always, quite a moving experience. In spite of his mistakes, most notably the tragic Dardan...

Re: David Holgate's photos around Glasgow

Many thanks for the link Robert. These pictures are very interesting and many of them are, I would say, of historical significance. I enjoyed in particular looking at the 1960's colour photographs. They are a reminder to those of us of a certain age, such as myself, of how dark and dingy, as well as...

Re: The Finnieston, 1125 Argyle Street

James Cowan mentions this building in his book “From Glasgow's Treasure Chest”, which consists mostly of articles he wrote in the 1930's for the Evening Citizen using the name “Peter Prowler”. This book has been mentioned on this forum a number of times. As far as he was able to ascertain the buildi...
