Brilliant Rabbie, was it really that bad for some, yes of course it was as I lived through part of it myself. Bitter sweet indeed even though, I would never undo the past that made me. Im sure most of us may feel the same , Glasgow for ever !





No wonder folk coming back get lost
Maybe because we see it changing a bit at a time we dont realise how bad it was.
The wee coffee stall at Charing Cross is still in business

The music was very sad if you didny know where it was beiruit comes to mind lol

Here are 2 aerial images of Toonheid, centred roughly on the beginning of Alexandra Parade at Castle St.

Many younger fowks do not realise that part of Alexandra Parade is now buried under the New Royal and the M8 was built over the Monkland Canal.

Just shows you how much of the auld toonhied was destroyed by the construction of the M8 carpark.

yes 81 its very difficult to go back and not see what we left behind, includine many great people.One wee sweety shop still operating on Maryhill rd, almost facing Eastpark home, use to spend my bus fare in there every day coming from school, loved every minit of it,the original owner has retired, his daughter told me he is in his eighties, now she shares the stores responsibilities with other family members, its a lovely wee shop with no changes made.
