There was a toy shop down towards the bottom of Cotton St (opposite the east gable of the Abbey) where I used to go and buy my airfix kits - it was located just below this photo of Gemmells Dairy.

I can't remember its name, but I do remember all the bus stops on the Abbey side of the road and if I remember rightly these were some of the Glasgow buses that came along Canal St and then round by the Abbey before turning right onto Gauze St. I think that would be the Ardrossan bus, and the Gourock and Greenock via Bridge of Weir buses!  :huh:

I used to travel to and from school on the Largs/West Kilbride/Seamill buses which came along Broomlands/Wellmeadow/ High Street on the way to Glasgow and Cotton Street/ Bridge Street/George Street on the way to the Ayrshire coast. As I recall, the Adrossan and Greenock/Gourock buses followed the same route.

'Glasgow's' doesn't ring an immediate bell, but you might be right. 

I had a fleeting thought it might have been called Dunlop's, but that too was just a random name that went through my old computer that is called my brain. :unsure:
