Shared here by Sandy Wilkie, is the former Esso Garage on the North side of Glasgow Road. A particularly snowy winter in 1978. Just look at the price of petrol! I have this garage as being owned by John O Neil and dating from the late 1950’s following the demolition of Baird’s Rows.
Situated directly across the road from Kelly’s Bar and Rosendale, it sat directly opposite the junction of Auchinraith Road where the on slipways are now for EK Expressway.
Anybody remember the Petrol Station and Garage from the 1960’s and 1970’s or can tell me more?
