Hi Bilbo, Unless the name has just stuck in my head from the stories my Dad used to tell. Sauchiehall Street was a regular occurance every Saturday since before I could even walk.

Thanks Bilbo I think it is Cuthbertsons I am thinking of. Is that where Biggars is now ?

Cuthbertson's were in Cambridge Street, I think. Just about where Greggs shop is. When you entered the shop you had to go down about a dozen wide steps - my sister made a grand entrance once by falling down them head first !

Talking about music shops in Sauchiehall Street,I was looking through the images of Sauchiehall Street on the Mitchell library came across Clydesdales Electical goods shop.That took me back to my youth when my mate and I queued up overnight for tickets for the Rolling Stones concert in the Apollo.I remember a lot of banter that night,very orderly and the tickets at face value.
And a great concert,great seats Mick Jagger in pink satin suit and skip cap.It was a gas rolleyes.gif

Is it this one, Jupiter? Great photo! I think the location must be gone now because of the motorway? It's 425 Sauchiehall St, Shop front, music, Ewing & Macintosh, Charing Cross.

(Notice how quango bosses put a 'The Mitchell' watermark across our photos on Virtual Mitchell after libraries were moved out of council control. Probably paving the way for paying for access to electronic content now! angry.gif )

Hi GG, this is the one.A very good picture.There was certainly some special shops in Sauchiehall Street,some I can remember , others are a bit older than me.Ive been trying to find another music shop pic for our poster which was between Rose Street and Cambridge Street on the north side of the street.

GG.

Would you rather that sites like "Glesga Pals" were able to lift pics from the VM and slap their "copyright" on them? I'm much more concerned about exhibitions at Kelvingrove where we're being charged to see paintings that we already own.

Nah, it's this one -directly opposite Waterson's. Nice orderly queue for the Stones.

Jupiter, I was also in the queue! The queue stretched along renfrew street, down west nile street, into sauchiehall street and renfield street. They had to open the ticket office at 4.00am because of the chance of the front of the queue meeting the end of the queue. lol

I paid 2.50 for my tickets as all of the cheapest ones had been sold. It was more than I expected to pay and a group of us had to walk it all the way back to Priesthill and Nitshill. Goats Head Soup!!! lol

Jim,I dont remember the price of the tickets but I do recall our seats were in the stalls and were pretty good.I think we got 4 tickets each and we had a great time at the concert.I even got a new leather safari jacket from a gents outfitters,in West Nile Street,cant recall the name but just down from Bath Street if anyone recalls.It was the bees knees.

Please tell me where is (was) the Apollo? I don't think it was around in my heyday!

In the 50s, most of the shows were held in the Empire and prior to leaving Glasgow in 1963, the bigger shows were held in the Odeon.

The Apollo was Greens Playhouse in renfield street.

I saw the Stones there. I guess at the same time as below. Turned the lights on 3 songs from the end! Might still have been Green's at that time.

He is 100% correct, my brothers and I used to force the emergency exit side door, creep upstairs to the boxes and watch the picture until we would be caught without fail and slung oot laugh.gif

Never mind the Stone I remember going to see the Lone Ranger there live on stage sometime in the fifties wub.gif
