Former Caspers Nightclub

Hard to believe that this large building at the corner of Clydeview Shopping Centre at Victoria Street junction sat for over 12 years unoccupied and derelict. The former Caspers Nightclub sign facing out all that Glasgow Road traffic. That’s a sign I wish I’d tried to salvage.

When writing my book, Glasgow Road South: The Real Story“, I never got the bottom of why it was called “Caspers” and would still like to know!

I recently found few audio cassettes in recorded one evening in Caspers. It picked up all the music AND my conversations that night in 1989 as an 18 year old. I’ll try to digitise some of the soundbites thats not incriminating!

Meantime, this picture is from 2001, a few years before the current Library moved in.
