GlescaPal Joe Cosgrove said.... Brilliant photo, Robert! I'd guess this is about 1946-48, judging by the cars? This is really a belter

Main Street looking towards Bridgeton Cross from the junction of Tullis Street
Some of the tenements here, have been renovated.
The TA hall is away as is many of the old buildings and shops.  

 

Looking at the picture above this co-op shop would have been on the right hand side 
approximately halfway along.
