Stuarty,that must be a new Adelphi Hotel, the orginal definately was I just can't remember if it was next to Boot's or one up from there it was a very narrow hotel I used to pass by it regularly when I worked for Cooper's on Howard St' I"m talking the early 40s, actually 1945.

The Adelphi and Boots Murn, this picture is perfect you can see the Adelphi Hotel along just past Boot's then there's Burton's great tailor' and accross Argyle St' was Grant' furniture shop it might have been Arnott &Simpsons across Jamaica St'v from Grants, Glasgow was Glasgow in these days THE Shipyards were relatively busy plenty of work, it's a pity they took the Tramcars away they supplied a lot of work for people also good clean transport, not having any exhaust AH!

The Adelphi and Boots
I'm trying to remember what was on top of Burton's, I know that the Grant arms was next door and Ithink that might have been the Grant Hotel with the entrance next to the Grant Arms that entrance is now something to do with Transport, at least it was on 2005

Stuarty, follow Boot's along to the end, and the first skinny building you see that is the Adelphi Hotel Ithink they had a uniformed doorkeeper with a kind of light brown uniform, I know in those days the Central Hotel also had a uniform doorkeeper, Glasgow was a fantastic City in those days, still is, just reduce that crime , It's embarrassing

Stuarty if you look at the first picture you can see 'Alephi Hotel' on the Union Street side of the Boots Building. I think all the upper part of the building was the hotel. Not too much info out there about the hotel.

Hi Murn, these photos are priceless, I guess it was called the Argyle before my time, Iwas talking of the30s,40s & early 50s, I can remember the Argyle Picture House, it was past Lewis's on the same side going towards the Trongate, when I was 15 I used to work for Coopers in Howard St. and I used to deliver groceries all around that area North Brunswick Hotel, but it was mostly offices that I delivered to once again Murn I,m forever in your debt for these photos

Hi A&R the entrance to the hotel was on Argyle street as you said but I think the whole hotel was above Boots. The picture was taken in the 1930s and is listed as a new building.

another wee bit of history wink.gif

Murn, I think you've hit it on the head,so it really isn't a skinny hotel after all, it would be 1957 to 1959 I my Wife bought children's books in Boot's also I still have a 1966 Engineer's iary that my Wife bought for me on 1965, Boot's had a floor upstairs where ll that kind of stuff was, we moved over here on Feb. 1966, this is good practice for the memory.
