Jack House did something similar in the 1970's which i think was updated in the 1980's. Judging by the amount of impressions / editions noted in the cover of these type of books it would appear they did quite well with sales.
It could be opened up a bit more with better research and narrative on the history of the sites. If i recall correctly some of Jack House's Past / Present books were mainly photo's with little text on the subject.
I've been searching away to see if this book has ever been mentioned, but since nobody has replied to tell you otherwise Socceroo I guess I will!
There is a book called 'Glasgow Then and Now' by Rudolph Kenna and it's essentially a Past Present book. Quite interesting, although a lot of them I've seen before from here I guess. However the book is from 2001 so the idea wasn't nicked from here. I only discovered it because my uncle showed me it the other night - he did a lot of the present photos on it. £9.99 on Amazon.
