Wickets has been bulldozed. Shame, had an excellent beer garden. What's the deal with the adjacent cricket club? Can you just turn up at the bar or do you need signed up?

Big T's in Pollokshaws Rd at the junction of Allison St.

There is/was a record/cd stall in the church at the corner of Gibson St and University Ave.

I'm sure there was a wee record store in the late 80s off Dumbarton Rd in Partick, could've been Dowanhill St?

It's not the most interesting building in the world, but worth a look if you're in the area. I've uploaded some images of it to d.s, including some of the (far more interesting) adjoining Yorkhill railway tunnel: http://downward-spiral.co.uk/yorkhill/ Cheers, David The link doesn't work for me.

That bank provided the setting for the robbery in Christopher Brookmyre's 'Sacred Art of Stealing'. The robbers made their escape by burrowing into the subway tunnel running beneath!

Thanks. I must say the platforms couldn't have been particularly wide. I notice a couple of disused footbridges over the track in the car park. Were these part of the station? Where would the stairs down be found?

Can I ask about the old Finnieston station on the Partick to Charing Cross line? It seems to have been located next to the old picture house/ Creme da la Creme but I see no evidence of where platforms could have stood before the tunnel entrace to Charing Cross at Argyle St.

Partick - Glasgow Central line
