Cover : paperback

The pictures in Old Cardonald actually start outside the area at Paisley Road Toll, proceeding through Halfway before reaching Cardonald proper. Once there, some early interior views of Nazareth House are featured before the route continues via Hillington Park Circus, Hillington Gardens, the bowling green and tennis club and Traquair Road. There are some peaceful shots of an almost traffic-free Paisley Road in the 1920s, and some surprisingly interesting views of a sewage tunnel being constructed, plus good bus and tram pictures for transport fans. Crookston is included also, as are Mosspark Drive and Boulevard (every council tenant once dreamed of a four-apartment house on the Boulevard), plus Leverndale Hospital. There's a brief stop at the author's own street before the journey continues to Corkerhill, Nitshill and the Hurlet. Although there is a fair amount of Cardonald material in this book, it really covers a much wider area.
