hello,
can I just ask, what was it about sachihall street that made it so famous, my da used to be forever going on about it, but I never heard the rest, just the name sauchihall street, i think he may have kived there when he was a boy or even worked there at some point, his name was Hughie Murray, if he was alive today he would be 79 and on this site all the time,lol, bless him.

Isa, Sauciehall Street used to be Glasgow's main shopping street with all the best shops, kind of posh shops. Lots of Cinemas and dancehalls, a kind of posh promenade could be had in Sauciehall Street. Now it's more Buchanan Street which is the best for shopping and walking down. Sauciehall Street was more lively in the past. Either does me fine though!! Take Care
Away to work here! It's Friday!!!!!!

One of the reasons that photograph may be difficult for some to recognise, is because that's how the old C&A building looks now, after it was acquired and refurbished a couple of years ago by Dunnes Stores.

C&A had a horrible, blue, 60s style glass facade and when it was removed by the new owners, the current facade was discovered hidden underneath.

There was also a C&A store in Trongate, it is now a T.J.Hughes department store.

Mary 48 - this picture is of the new Buchanan Galleries (Mall); it's where the old Buchanan Bus Station used to be located and to the right of the entrance is Buchanan Street. My favourite shopping area I think must be Princes Square, especially walking up the staircase as it's just beautifully designed and absolutely love walking through the Argyle Arcade looking in all the jeweller shop windows. Also love shopping in the House of Fraser.

Thanks D.C. for reminding me that the Dunne's building had changed.I live in Glasgow and although that only happened a year or so back i had forgotten how ugly the old C&A building was.The new restored front is really smart.Here is another picture for you-not Sauchiehall Street but one of the most amazing regenerated area's in the city I think and a big favourite of mine.Can anybody not resident in Glasgow guess where it is.

hahahah, well it definitely wisnae a mental nurse cos ah goat tae the meet awright:)
ah think we might have spoken aboot these folk afore oan the auld board, Melody. He had a two way and spoke back tae the "office" who told him the best way for me tae get tae where ah wis gauin...ah wis in Argyle street (ah think) ...near St Enoch's.

Maybe it wis just a temporary thing during peak tourist season?

Glinger...thanks for the sites...ah'll have a look at them tomorrow...ah wis going to look at George Square tonight but ah'm needin a reboot:(
