Rather than start a new project I thought I would bring this old one back to life.
Last year whilst on a walk back to town I ventured up Kilbirnie Street and got my camera out to take a few photos. Some of the building here are worth seeing and if anyone has any information on then I would be grateful.
As far as I can make out this area of the city was previously known as Port Eglinton. I put off posting the photos below as I wanted to make sure they were put in the right place. Following a brief discussion yesterday with Fos and JohnR I did as they suggested and searched here and found this old topic from August 2004. Now three years later during a google search I found this very interesting site relating to memorials to Firemen who have died on duty.
It will be the 35th anniversary of the Kilbirnie Street Warehouse fire which took the lives of 7 Firemen.
I thought that it would be appropriate to bring a further piece of history to this project before posting my photos.
Thanks to Graeme Kirkwood's site for providing so much detail about this tragedy
There are lots of other buildings worth photographing in this part of the city. Maybe some other people will take a walk through this area and take a few photos to add to those above.
Some additional information on the Kilbirnie Street Fire.
Almost 30 years later there was a further fire in Kilbirnie Street again involving a warehouse.
Some photos on the Glasgow Story.
