Here's a photo of the (very impressive looking) pub in the centre of the photo: if you click on the photo you'll get a slightly larger version - look at the street name!

Sad to say that my memory of 'old' Springburn has almost been as obliterated as the place itself and I can't get an exact fix on where this is. To help me, can you tell me this please - in the picture where would Woolworths have been? I'm assuming five minutes walk up Springburn Road veeering towards the right...

The pub was on the junction of Elmvale Street and Springburn Road. Almost opposite the pub on Springburn Road was the bottom of Balgrayhill and Woolworths was just along from that. On the corner to the left the pub was the church and the swingpark smile.gif biggrin.gif

Sorry lindamac, I don't know much about the old pubs in Springburn because I was too young to drink in them before they went, hopefully someone will be able to name them. I am getting a better sense of where the photo was taken from in terms of how Springburn is today. The following two photographs helped me - probably taken by Strathclyde Regional Council staff - which are quaintly entitled "Springburn Realignment" (as if Springburn was some recalcitrant child in need of a short-sharp-shock to get him back on the right path!).

The first is from 1981 and looking towards Elmvale Primary School.

The second is one year later, and the results of all the 'progress' are there to see.

They are sad indeed georgia, and here's the saddest one of all coming up, where you see what all the "Springburn Realignment" was for - a crappy road built without regard to the Springburn community, just so that commuters could escape to the suburbs quicker, after enduring a day's work in Glasgow city centre!

These two photos were taken - by me - almost exactly 21 years later. The first (so you can get your bearings) shows the police station and the flats from roughly the same perspective as the two photos above, now look at the white box on the police station roof as I swing the camera 90 degress and move and turn from west to north...
