 “Winter at Bridgeton Cross – 1950’s”
This original composition was painted in February 2009 using acrylics on canvas board
measuring 508 x 406 mm (20" x 16").
Looking southwards beyond the “umbrella”, Dalmarnock Road is to the left from which a number 46 motor bus from Castlemilk enters the Cross. A motor vehicle emerges from Main Street behind the number 26 tramcar, en-route to Scotstoun via Partick.  James Street, is located to the right of the taxi which is adjacent to Cockburn the Chemist and behind the pedal cyclist.  The number 17 tramcar on the left is about to enter Dalmarnock Road en route to Cambuslang via Farme Cross. The snow covered cars heading south have entered the Cross from Orr Street.  The traffic policeman stops the flow of all traffic to enable pedestrians to cross over to the umbrella and also the slow moving horse and cart to cross over to the correct side of London Road, having just entered the Cross from Olympia Street. The coalman and his horse and cart are heading along London Road towards the Calton.

 "A wet wintry night at Bridgeton Cross"
This nostalgic scene is typical of any weekday night at Bridgeton Cross during the 1950s. 
Painted in March 2007 using acrylics on canvas board measuring 508 x 406 mm (20" x 16").
Looking southwards, Dalmarnock Road is to the left beyond the Umbrella with Main Street to the right of the number 26 tramcar enroute to Scotstoun via Partick. The tramcar on the left, number 26A, is en route to Shawfield via Main Street, Bridgeton. James Street is located to the right of the two motor vehicles, entering the cross from Main Street at Cockburns the Chemist. The number 106 trolley bus travelled from Millerston to Govan along James Street. The Carter is heading towards the coal depot in Dalmarnock Road located between Dalmarnock Tollhouse, at Springfield Road, and Dalmarnock Railway Station.

dunn st wembley bar
Dunn Street at junction of Baltic Street
The Wembley Bar situated at the corner of Dunn Street and Baltic Street in the east end of Glasgow was a favourite haunt of local GlescaPals.  Sadly the Wembley Bar and its surrounding tenements were demolished in the late 1960's and early 1970's as part of the Glasgow Eastern Area  Regeneration (GEAR) project.  My painting shows a wummin hingin' oot a windae above the Wembley Bar and watching two boys playing fitba' in their Rangers and Celtic strips.  Two locals also watch from the Dunn Street entrance of the pub.  Two wee lassies are playing peever in Baltic St ootside the pub entrance and next tae close No.206 

'Hingin' Oot A Windae'hingin oot a windae
I painted this using the shown  black and white photograph as reference. 
The painting using acrylic on canvas board measures 406 x 305 mm (16" x 12") and it is protected with two coats of gloss varnish. 
It was signed and dated by me in July 2011.
