Just a couple of snaps of a stroll in Glasgow around the 1940s. My mother, Rena Smith, with her friends the Duthie family from around Duke Street.

Lorne Hotel in the background.

Probably snapped by a street photographer.

farrochie great pics.Just for your info they are on the Esplanade at Rothesay.It was the Northern Fleet Sub Base hence the sailors in the background.
Street photographer gave you a ticket nd you could pic up prints later on at the shop in Dean Hood Place.Ive got quite a few in the attic.

Thanks, Jupiter. I assumed from the buildings in the background it was Glasgow; can you identify Rothesay features, other than the sailors smile.gif

I have to say this I was wondering why a street photographer (numbers on the prints?) would have been in Glasgow. Rothesay explains it.

Rab,thanks for highlighting the Bute film.I can still smell the steamer,the sea, the leather seats in the taxi taking us to our holiday house.The round Bute tour,ice cream at the Kingarth Hotel while the adults were in for a "wee refreshment."
To this day I still get a big thrill sailing into Rothesay.
