I was looking through my favourite webpage and was showing Tommy (my husband) the picture of Whitelaws pub and he remembers it as "the seven ways"  We actually had a laugh together as we were trying to work our what would be alongside the pub as he was trying to remember what else was there and trying to tell me where the picture house was etc. and then we looked up at the wall in front of my computer and there we were looking straight at two pictures we have of Bridgeton Cross and right in the middle was  the pub  LOL    But in our pictures it looks like the pub was bigger, going further left along London Road but we think now that as Glasgow folks  are not drinking so much that is probably why you have wee pubs now  LOL
