Past Present – Napiershall Street

Thanks to ‘dimairt’ and his suggestion I have a look at the 1979 Jimmy Boyle film ‘A Sense of Freedom‘ for stuff filmed around my area, I present a special themed Past Present…

First up, top of Napiershall Street, c.1974 and now (‘then’ pic courtesy of David Warrilow):



Now, some ‘then’ shots screencapped from the 1979 film ‘A Sense of Freedom’:

    Hi’ Gordon, looking thru your ‘auld photos’ of the Maryhill area caused me to ask, “You wouldn’t happen to have a photo of the 734 close on Maryhill Rd, near The and just back from the Royal Bank corner? I left my wee room and kitchen up that close in 1969 and I guess they tore it down later on? Thanking you in advance for any info’ offered Gordon, me? Springburn’s Jimmy Reid.
