(Ach, no edit feature :roll: )
I was going to add the whitewashed wall is also part of the Erecting Shop. Note the bricked up windows, which was part of the eastern wall, and later merged into the adjoining construction.

Thanks for that, I had no idea Shawlands used to be so different (although I'd never really given it much thought), what was the Embassy? A cinema?

Are there any open textile mills left in Scotland. Ive been inside the last one in Aberdeen quite a lot recently, just wondered where else they existed?

Judging by the "Shirley temple in Curly Top I'd say it was a cinema. :D [/url]

Right, thanks to dimairt and his suggestion I have a look at the Jimmy Boyle film 'A Sense of Freedom' for stuff filmed around my area, I present a special themed Past Present...

First up, top of Napiershall Street, c.1974 and now ('then' pic courtesy of David Warrilow):

Nice Set Nodrog,
There are other sets of movie themed Past/Presents on here somewhere too from the films Comfort and Joy and Deathwatch, Maybe we should do this with others too. 8)

Brilliant!

Funnily enough I was going to grab a few scenes from the dvd and post them as I didn't know where exactly the film was shot.

The copy I have has some dodgy overdubbing on it :x is everybody's the same?
