That was my first reaction too, but they had long gone before I came to the neighbourhood, and I guess it's easy for us, from this distance in time, to forget just how bad some of Glasgow's tenemental housing was. Somebody wrote in a thread a wee while ago (was it Vlad?) in relation to Townhead, that many of the residents there had been lobbyiong for years to have their tenements pulled down. You can argue about what went in their place, but I suspect (indeed I'm sure I've heard tell from reliable sources) that many of the tenements in Maryhill Road were particularly grim and poor quality.

I remember the old goods station well, when was it demolished ?
Are there any plans for the wall along Duke Street ? It's in an appauling condition, i'm surprised there aren't barriers up.

Great selection of photos James.

GK there was something in the planning application for this site relating to the wall. I can't remember the details. It may be available on the Council's site.
