...now look for the white box in this photo at the extreme left of the (middle of) photo and you will see that everything has gone for the sake of the road...thanks to the 'city fathers'.

And right beside Woolies was the City Bakeries where we had our wedding reception, many years ago, still have the bill!!!!!!!!!!!! There was an employment office at the corner near Elmvale St, when I left school colston, stopped in at this office on my walk home to Springburn to see about a job, started the next week in the Alliance Box office in Possil! Will be there in a couple of weeks, so will have a wee wander up Springburn, what is left of it, but it will still be good memories.

Hi Matt.63 and all here is a photo of Springburn Fire Station situated as you say at the corner of Keppochhill Road and Springburn Road .The White Building to the left of the photo above the red car at the top of the hill is the old Social [D.H.S.S.] and in front of the social would have been the Kinema Picture Hall [The Coffin ] Cheers Flim

Great photos flam, thanks for posting. I've a feeling that the actual 'Buroo' office was a bit further up and round the bend. I think it was demolished at least at time the photo was taken and the spot now contains modern flats built last year. I'm not sure though - can anyone confirm?

I remember that part of Springburn Road, that was where the Kinema was, was it not? Petershill Road was round the corner on the left and just before that on Springburn Road (opposite the Kinema) was a wee knitting shop called Perivale where my mum was a member of 'The Menage' (spelling???). They had knitting machines and used to knit lovely jumpers & cardigans. When my mums turn came round in the menage I used to get some lovely knitted skirt and cardigan sets, I was around 9-10 years old then.
