Sauchiehall St., 1967
Sauchiehall St., 2007
This is looking west, towards the junction with Hope Street.
As with some of the others I have already posted on this thread, I took the older picture myself. The large van on the right is parked outside the entrance to the old Crown Hall auction rooms – this is where the Studio sign is in the 2007 picture. The building where the Royal Hotel was is no more – it was replaced in the late 1980’s.
The shop to the immediate right of the first Leyland Titan bus was a branch of Dunn & Co., a rather old fashioned establishment that specialised in menswear for the More Mature Gentleman. This gave them something of an image problem which is probably why they went out of business eventually. I am not 100% sure about the destination screen on the bus but I think it might be going to Queenslie, in which case it would be a no. 10 coming from Knightswood or Scotstounhill.
Note also in the background the Gaumont cinema sign on the building which is now the Savoy shopping centre.
