Old Cowcaddens, Possilpark and Lambhill

Author : Andrew Stuart
ISBN : 9781872074870
Cover : paperback
Price : £10.95

If ever a book deserved the title of 'Old' then this is it. The Cowcaddens of old has been almost completely obliterated, and Andy Stuart's book pictures a number of streets in this area that have been completely swept away. He follows a photographic route along Dobbie's Loan, up Garscube Road and Possil Road past the austere Oakbank Hospital. From there the journey continues to Possilpark, with pictures of the public school, co-op and several views of Saracen Street and Cross. The journey finishes at Lambhill. Some excellent tram photographs by the late W. Douglas MacMillan also feature in the book. Andy's lively and informative text succeeds in bringing the whole area back to life.
