Gorbals Glasgow Tour

Saturday, March 01, 2008

This afternoon I went on a cycle ride down to Glasgow's Southern Necropolis. On route I took some pics of some Gorbals architecture. For more information on Glasgow tours visit this web page.

This first image contains Alexander 'Greek' Thomson's Caledonia Road Church, built 1857 and now a ruin.
In the background can be seen 1960s tower blocks which were built to replace the appalling social housing. However, these blocks are now vacant and appear to be in process if demolition.

Here is some notable modern architecture in the Gorbals, near to the Southern Necropolis
