Calside

This weeks 'then' Photo from the Heritage Library shows the Calside-Causeyside-Neilston Road gushet as it was back 59 years ago in 1963. The old tenements of 6-10 Calside and those of Stirling Street are newly demolished to make way for the Maisonettes which replaced them, with the loss of Stirling Street from the Map altogether.

In the foreground is the 'Hygenic Fountain' Gifted by George Hamilton of Blackland Mill Circa 1900 with the underground Toilets in the shadow of the building to the left. and ahead, is the Craig Dhu Pub housed in the tenement built for Publican Alexander Adam back in 1906 by local Architect John Albert Rennison. The Police Call-box on the Kerbside has long since gone, with the more recent loss of the Public Telephone Box

May be an image of 2 people and outdoors

My GP was just around the corner on Neilson rd, Dr Armitage.
