Bath St. runs on a horizontal east/west axis, is the present pic not north/south? Am I looking at it the wrong way?

Accordung to the caption with the original picture the church stood on Bath street so that would say to me the picture was taken looking south.
Like I say Im not fully convinced it is exactly right but I think its pretty close.

Ah, right, so that would make the 'past' photo Charing Cross at the corner of Sauchiehall Street and Newton Street, looking towards the church on Bath Street.

Opened in 1957, the John Menzies House replaced their earlier warehouse just to the south, being their Glasgow head office and warehouse.

Menzies House, 1957 (later General Accident House).

Red sandstone office block to the S by Brand and Lithgow, c.1915 (later extended with extra floors); the original Glasgow warehouse for John Menzies.

I can remember going in to that building during the 80s as an insurance company called General Accident,
disputed a large house insurance claim with them for months.

You make them sound like an obscure company, Mori. They were one of Scotland's largest employers.

Aye but try getting money oot them, they were quick to post out the red letters if you missed their monthly premium payment.

Never the less i got the money i claimed from them after many months of hagling,,, only because they never had a leg to stand on legaly, if it was an old age pensioner or someone who was not botherd with how much they got GA would have swalowed that money. it was a sweet victory for me. :D

There are some rather fab (non-Glasgow) past present pictures here, which might provide some inspiration for the past present (Glasgow) snappers:
