Whitevale Street, photograph taken from Gallowgate, May 2004 
All that remains from the 1914 photograph is the Whitevale baths but sadly time has not been kind to it and it lies derelict.   The street is dominated by two tower blocks each 32 storey high built between 1963 and 1969.
The building formerly housed a swimming pool and turkish bath. It was closed in the 1980s
I attended these baths regularly as a member of the Boys' Brigade c1965-1978
