My great grandfather John Weir died 16 May 1930. His death record gives an address of 23 Martyr St Glasgow.

Can anyone tell me (or show with pictures) what Martyr St was like at the time? Residential, industrial etc. John was a 'wanna be' dentist. Would he have worked from Martyr St or elsewhere?

I've been told that there is a John Weir 'dentist' in the 1930/31 Valuation Rolls, at 122 Ark Lane. I'm not at all sure if this is my John (he died May 1930)

Martha st was birth ,deaths,marriage ,office,not martyr st .that street was possibly in townhead area.

You are right I realized that after I had sent the reply. I looked up Martyr Street on Google and yes it was in (is) in Townhead (Toonheid) I was in Glasgow in May and that area up into Springburn is no longer the way I
remember it, it is nearly all motorway.
