Yes excellent job, the lordship's photo is just sad, to see it today isolated in touristland when the other photo shows it amongst the day to day life of Glasgow

Stunning as always mate; thanks again/

Nice one - the only things that I can spot that have changed is obviously, St Andrew House now re-clad and the old NAAFI building is gone and the GRCH/Galleries is now in its place. Any others I have missed?

Thanks HH and RA.

The Royal Hotel building in the 1968 photo, on the corner with Hope Street, has either been re-clad with blonde brick, or is a new-build to the same dimensions as the old building.

It couldn't be that it's just been sandblasted clean?

It's definitely modern brickwork.

In the 1968 pic what building and street is that in the background?
Is it Buchanan St? I've forgotten what used to be where The Galleries are now.

I can't quite get my bearings, but I think it's this building here, and that would be Parliamentary Road which continued on after Sauchiehall Street?

Yes, your right.

Funny how that road just disappeared.

Such a contrast there to see the old buildings of the old street turn into the Galleries

That is indeed the old NAAFI building in the distance, which was the Chevalier casino by the time of this photo.

Here's a link to allow you to view the Original size image (I own the actual slides), for some great detail:-
