(Or if they know they should have got permission, at least they'll be tip-toeing around in their socks, so it's all good.)
Do you remember the old Melrose cafe that was on Maryhill Road near the library and just near Lochburn road end. It was owned by the J'aconelli family. They had another one at Queens Cross. And the old Burgh Halls. I passed there recently and they are in a sad state now. How about the Roxy cinema. Do you remember it or was it pulled down before you lived in Burnhouse St. Gawd but you have set my mind working trying to remember the place as it was when I was a child, 50 plus years ago.

Good point dingdong. Have a look at the only tenement left on the first part of Garscube Rd for an example of what might have been, especially in comparison to the already decaying modern building next door.
Should point out though that many of the tenements in this area were beyond saving thanks to absentee owners and couldn't-care-less factors. The properties in Oakbank St. were condemned in the early 1900s but still in use in the late 1960s.

Maybe if I did this, the c**t upstairs would actually get the message!
May I offer this;
