Bothwell Circus, I like the sound of that. Pity they pissed it away with the M8

It actually survived the building of the M8, and was done away with sometime after. It would appear from the pic and the map that it was elevated above that other wee street.

what sort of date is that photo from?

Took me ages to work out what was going on!

Me too!
Then I realised where Dalian house would eventually be built!
It's funny to see the Bothwell St off ramp so 'exposed'

Excellent shot! 8)

Its quite strange as well, looking at the old map, the way the streets around there break from the grid pattern (Bothwell Circus and the other one running diagonally) - its still pretty central.

Fantastic Photo. Must have been taken from that monstrosity they call 'The Pinnacle'. I wonder why Elmbank Street is all blocked off?

That might have been around the time the Ear, Nose and Throat Hospital was being demolished.

I posted a bunch of those a while back, they may still be on here somewhere.

(They were "Borrowed" from Eastbank MRC :oops: These particular photos were removed from their site a long while ago, I thought they were too good to miss)


EDIT: Here they are :)

1967 - its all so shiny and new. And fucking horrible...

2007 - the wall in the immediate foreground of the above picture is where the
circular on-ramp joins to the flyover so an exact location pic *is* possible but...

Anyone have any images of Greenhead Street in Bridgeton before the calamatous changes?

I can't find any on Virtual Mitchell apart from the old Baths.

I know it's a long shot.
