Does anyone have photos of Tiffanys on Sauciehall St during the 70's. Loved that place - every Frid night - the lovely staircase and palm trees and us with our 'moscow mules' ...... great memories smile.gif


Hi this is my first time in this forum, I was searching the internet on stuff on the old Clouds dance hall, I use to go there back in the 70s, so I decided to build the inside in 3D and make up some dance move for my models, you can check out my video on it, here is the link.

Attached Image The Locarno Ballroom, Sauchiehall Street, photographed in 1930 when it was for sale. The Locarno was closed between 1929 and 1934.

The ballroom had opened on the site of a former cinema, the Charing Cross Electric Theatre, in 1926. It was named for the town in Switzerland where a treaty had been signed in the previous year, under which the European powers agreed to regard the frontiers of western Europe as permanent, raising false hopes of a lasting peace.

The first Scottish Professional Dancing Championships were held at the Locarno in 1928. The winners were Alex Warren and Cecilia Bristow. The Locarno was regarded as one of Glasgow’s top dancing venues for many years, and was popular with American servicemen during the Second World War. In the 1960s the name was changed to Tiffany’s, as discotheques became fashionable. Dancing finished when the building was converted into a casino in the 1970s.
This is the best ah could do. Can't get one of the interior but will keep trying.
