1981 Forrest Street

I’ll be writing about the north side of Glasgow Road along with many great photos in due course. For now though, here’s  great photo taken in July 1981.

Pictured from Glasgow Road, this must have been a strange sight at the time, following the demolition of the tenements on Glasgow Road. The photo is taken from the former position of the Livingstonia Public House. With the tenements gone, people could see easily through to Forrest Street to the Telephone Exchange and the Salvation Army Citadel.  To the left, out the picture, Devlin Grove was being built.

Whats your memories of this area?
