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 :)

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.

It's not - Ally Parade was dead straight there, and the rest of it still exists.
