Bridgeton Umbrella and Olympia Building
Painting by 'glesca artist' (Wm.Neilly) shows the Umbrella and the Olympia building following their complete restoration under the Clyde Gateway Urban Regeneration Project. The famous and historic landmark, Grade A listed, Bridgeton Cross Umbrella, was restored to its full glory in 2011 with a substantial contribution from the Glasgow City Heritage Trust. The imposing, Grade B listed, Olympia building on the gushet between Orr Street and Olympia Street and facing Bridgeton Cross was completely revamped and returned to public use in 2012. The four-storey, Grade B listed, tenement at the junction of Orr Street and London Road flanks the former Bridgeton Central Railway Station. Painted using acrylics on canvas board measuring 508 x 406 mm (20 x 16) in March 2013.
