Back in 1944 I used to go to the Woodside Baths in the morning before I started work at R.S.McColls on North Woodside Rd.


What a co-incidence, perhaps you can help me. I was in Woodside Library last night and was asked to help find a pic of this McColl's on N Woodside Rd.
Can you tell where on N Woodside Rd RS McColl's was located? Was it a shop or an office, distribution centre or what?
Morag, colour snaps are rare from the '50s and '60s but seeing as it's you....

Le durachd,
Eddy

Another two fine photographs of Napiershall Street and Henderson Street.Can I venture to say I think taken in early 70s.The top picture spells out the end for the tenement above the pub as the windows look broken and the houses are generally neglected looking.The second picture showing down towards North Woodside Road and on to Great Western Road and the buildings look in fine shape.I note the pawn shop bells on the corner.
Its just incredible the changes that have occurred over the passing years.
I dont know where you are digging the pics up but keep them coming.Cheers.

A view south looking down Maryhill Road and Garscube Road.Maryhill Road survived slightly longer that Garscube Road.This was taken in the 80s (judging by the registration plate on the yellow car) by myself.Comments welcome.

R.S. McColls, on North Woodside Rd. just before you come to St. Georges Rd., it was a chocolate factory, they also made boilings etc. we used to load our vans at the Despatch on Myrtle St. the factory was right next to Sternes Refrigeration Engineering

My Pal and I used to play snooker in the snooker hall above the pub

Very interesting comment about the snooker club from Agnes and Robert.I only remember it as being the hall where the ladies of the area,including my granny,Mrs Grieve played whist,50s/60s.Then it became a sort of golf shop,I think.Maybe you can let us know when the snooker was on the go.Cheers.

Thanks Agnes and Robert. Is this it or as near as we're likely to get? It's N Woodside Rd just at St George's Rd; you can see the Cedar St flats under construction. The OS map from 1950 shows the location of the "confectionary works" clearly.
I've added one of the Queen's Cross Vaults from 1960 - note the Billiards sign. Would people have said billiards rather than snooker? Like most/all other crosses in Glasgow there was a gents toilet, a police box, a public phone and a pub. With Firhill just two minutes away, what else could you need?

Le durachd,
Eddy

Yes Dimairt, that was R.S.McColls, I'm surprised to see it still standing, yes there used to be a gents toiletat Garscube & Maryhill Rds. and we called it the snooker hall gee Dimairt you bring back a lot of memories when I was a vanboy with R.S. McColls that was back in 1944 & 45, I can always remember the little bakery at the corner of Georges Rd. and North Woodside Rd. after all those years Ican stil taste them.

Great photo of Queens Cross Dimairt. I note the two 'smooth' tracks on the uphill side of Maryhill Rd. As I recall these tracks were provided to make it easier on the horses pulling their loads up the cobblestone hilll.
At around that time I was a helper on a (motorized) Dunlop lorry delivering butter, margarine, soap powder etc. etc. in Maryhill and surrounding areas.
Also played snooker at a billiards hall across from the Seamore cinema but can't remember the name right now.

"Yes Dimairt, that was R.S.McColls, I'm surprised to see it still standing"
It's long gone , the snap was taken in the early 1960s and that part of N Woodside Rd has modern flats, some ten years old now. Thanks for keeping me right on the snooker/billiards point.

"note the two 'smooth' tracks on the uphill side of Maryhill Rd. As I recall these tracks were provided to make it easier on the horses pulling their loads up the cobblestone hill."

They're called setts and there are still examples in this area: at the top of Hopehill Rd; at Baird's Brae and on N Woodside Rd leading down to the subway. The thumbnail pic attached is of Hopehill Rd.
For those of you abroad, it's a glorious day here (again).

Le durachd,

Eddy
