Well, no idea who or why, but it looks like the view through railway arches i guess... does that tie in with anything in that area? Perhaps something long gone? Or is this the totally wrong track?

think it was done in 1978, have been talking to a local muralist who remembers it being done, but nothing else about it

This is where Spoutmouth was. My granny lived there. Across the road were arches (Gold Star pickle factory were there latterly -- don't know what's there now, I've been away too long). This was a continuation of the railway bridge that crosses the start of the Gallowgate. Maybe that's why it looks like railway arches. The street behind the arches was where the carters kept their horses. Doesn't help much with the artist though, sorry.

Is it by the same person who painted the phoenix in Maryhill Road? I thought that was commissioned by the council, maybe not? Been away for too long.
