tenements opposite old Power Station
Photograph taken from opposite
Birkwood Street looking south towards the
Dalmarnock Bridge which is just beyond
the trees, bottom right corner.
Opposite these tenements is the site of the old
Dalmarnock Power Station.
Dalmarnock Road looking towards the Dalmarnock Bridge which can be seen just
at the bend.
First street on the left, past the bus stop, is Birkwood Street.
Extract from e-mail,
Graham Hutchison, Perth, Western Australia, August 2002
"I have been looking at your new photographs with some mixed emotions.
Dalmarnock Rd at Dalmarnock Bridge. I couldn't believe that
this old tenement block was still there, one of my best mates (note the
Aussie terminology) Russell Sinclair
lived on the 2nd storey in the 3rd close up as you look at the photo.
I thought - not everything has changed
It is just unbelievable the memories these
photographs stir up, and no small amount of excitement just in looking at
them. I don't know if you realise just
how much pleasure you bring to me and I am sure many others around the
world with the work you put into this website."

This is a super site and
although I haven't stayed in the east end of Glasgow for many a long year, I
still meet many of my eastender peers when we meet at Broadwood Stadium
Cumbernauld to cheer on our beloved Clyde Football Club.
My maternal grandparents stayed at 48 Springfield Road and I have clear
memories of "Granny" hingin' out the first floor window waiting to
fling me a "piece" when I came out of Springfield Primary School
at 4 o'clock.
It's interesting that the 811 Dalmarnock Road building ( where I was
born) is one of the very few properties which still stand from the
original days of Bridgeton and Dalmarnock that I remember.
