The Dewar's Hotel Bridge Street.

Postby Mr Vallance » Mon Jul 26, 2010 10:56 am

Part of on-going research.

This Hotel was used for a meeting between the first Member Clubs who formed the Scottish Football Association in 1873.

I've been trying to get a location on it.

Can anyone help ?

Just had a very quicklook on the National Library of Scotlands digital map collection - OS 1893 shows a Bridge Street Station Hotel, at the corner of Clyde Place / Bridge Street - click the link below to see the map.

The Mitchell will have the city directory's for the period your after to confirm if this was indeed Dewars Hotel.

The Station was in operation from 1840 - 1905

Well done guys.

Thing is, The Bridge Street Station is shown as No.14

Dewars Hotel is shown as No.11, which would indicate is was on the other side of the street, here's a pic from 1865 which was sent to me earlier today looking from Jamaica Bridge, the pillars of Bridge Steet Station are on the right.

Here's a front view of the Station.

Very Grand.

And today, what a waste.

Do you mean picture 6 , the one showing the Pillared building next to Salon Services ?
That would have been the exact location ( NO.11) of the Hotel my friend.

Made some copyright faux pas with my last post. url is HERE
Counting up the possible street numbers, I suspect the much less grand building in the 5th picture might be number 11. Might just be an old enough building.
