If ever a book deserved the title of 'Old' then this is it. The Cowcaddens of old has been almost completely obliterated, and Andy Stuart's book starts with a number of pictures of streets in this area that have been completely swept away. Heading away from there he follows a route along Dobbie's Loan, up Garscube Road and up Possil Road past the austere Oakbank Hospital. From there the journey continues to Possilpark, with pictures of the public school, co-op and several views of Saracen Street and Cross. The selection finishes at Lambhill. Some excellent tram photographs by the late W. Douglas MacMillan feature in the book, whilst Andy's informative text brings these now forlorn areas back to life.
