Streets of Bridgeton - London
Road .........at Kerr Street
'The Crimson Star' bar in Bridgeton at London Road junction of Kerr Street.
This was known as 'The Regent' for many years before changing name to the
'Lord of the Isles'
Lovely tenement building still looking good. ( see The
Crimson Star website
The flags on display outside the pub should tell
everyone this is a 'bluenose' pub.
Many pubs in Bridgeton now display their
colours in this way whilst further west and north in
the Gallowgate area the pubs fly the Irish tricolour such is the great
divide in this city of ours.
Tam Bain played the flute with the Billy
Boys band in the 1930's this photo was taken
