It's currently a sprawl of derelict land in the middle of Saracen Street in Possilpark which the council has been trying to flog recently for 277,000, but can anyone remember the place in its glory days as the former Blindcraft factory?

The building was built in 1910 and was one of the first reinforced-concrete constructions in the city when it opened as a warehouse for Easiephit Footwear.
