Kinda caught the overlay bug - heres some of Yoker over the years.

Kinda confirms that my house is built on what was once farm land and may even be built over the culverted Garscadden Burn

Fantastic YB.

Would love to be able to do this and solve a couple of questions.

Great work.

Thanks Pgcc93. Found the difference between the first 2 maps
of interest, with the expanse of manufacturing in the area.

The motor works on the old map are at Halley St, and is now occupied by a development of small industrial units, a scrappy and a bus garage.

The Albion works are on the Corner of Balmoral St and South Street, between Yarrows and Forrest Furnishings

The Motor Works shown on my map belong to the famous Glasgow firm Halley Motor Company - which later became part of the Albion Motor Company

Is that the same Halley's that own the dealers in Milngavie?
