The Adelphi was on the corner of Union Street and Argyll Street. In fact it wasn't demolished until the present building was built in the 1990's. On removing the panels that made up the facade of Boot's the demolition squad discovered the original facade of the Adelphi. Fearing they would lose the job if the conservation groups found out about it they ripped it down rapidly...thus another piece of Glesga's architectural heritage was reduced to a pile of rubble and dust. mad.gif

Too bad that building was torn down I remember the Adelphi very well I used think it was a narrow hotel until I found out that it stretched above Boots, the Adelphi had a uniformed doorman just like the Central Hotel, those were the grand old days, yes it was at the corner of Union St. and Argyle St., remember the big clock

You might have liked her, but your not much of a gentleman making the girl's name public.

The Adelphi Hotel was in Howard Street St Enoch Square, The only Adelphi that was in Glasgow. Was owned by Peter Fox many years ago. Last time I noticed it was being used to house the homeless men in Glasgow. Oddly enough have passed there a couple of times but never noticed.
.
Chances are it no longer operates as the Adelphi. At the corner just passed where it was is "THe Lorne Bar".
Will look next time am in that part of town. There's so much building work now with the Centre Mall being extended. smile.gif


You are right, my dad leased it for a few years and he used to take me in as a wee boy in the early 80s. My brother knocked a hole in a storage cupboard out into the street and tuned it into a tobaccokiosk...did a roaring trade from all the workies who were on site building the new St Enoch Centre. We had a video shop in the foyer for a while too.
