I assume the following ... this is the flyover which runs from Great Western Road and the road with the car on it is the road which now runs from St George's Road to Maryhill Road. The tenements are at the arse end of Great Western Road. The road with the car on it now runs on (instead of just turning right) and this is what is now known (I think) as Phoenic Road.
Or a meringue?
Any views folks?

My Granny used to live down there and when the tenemants where being demolished we used to go and play in the ruins. That is were I lost a cracking toy Dalek when it fell down a hole in the post-acopalyptic ruins. It's still there under those red brick houses. Wonder what future archeologists will make of it?
