Could someone post or point me in in the direction of photographs of the Criterion Cafe?

Hi. It was just along from the FF Bingo Hall. Going towards Partick. So if you can find a photo of the FF looking towards Partick then it may be in it. A girlfriend worked in it years ago.

I like the photograph but it's the other side of the road.

Obviously about 30 years too late, but was it here then?

Did brilliant ice cream. Think the premises were turned into a fast food place in later years.

I did some work (flooring) for the guy who owned it I believe his name was Bruno,his elderly mum used to pop in she was Italian,nice people.That was when he was trying to turn it into the fast food that died a quick death.
Off topic, but is there a "Criterion" connection cos there was a bar by the same name,now called the Ettrick.
Just askin...

Thanks for that Mack.

I'm still looking for photographs of the cafe.
