To be fair, the Dundas Vale Teachers' Centre was numbered 6 on New City Rd when it was built in 1837 and was only renumbered when a vaste swathe of new City Rd was expunged from the landscape in the 1960's.

The building, as mentioned, was opened as the 'Normal School' and was the first building in Britain to be erected for the professional training of teachers, whom before, had been trained by the Church (whatever church they happened to belong to).

Who would have thought it, practically the birthplace of modern education marooned in Cowcadden amidst flyovers and underpasses, deck access blocks and bloody buggery bastart roadside fences that hem you into pavements. Spare a thought next time you see it.

I would put it back if I were you, Shug. It's just plain theft, what kind of example is that to set to to-day's young'uns? :evil:

Don't know if Phoenix Rd was renamed as new, but there was a Phoenix Park Terrace and Phoenix Park itself, which would by sitting underneath the M8 to the east of Garscube Rd these days.
