Picture taken in 1933 (Tavern on the right, next to tram depot). The panic seen on the street apparently was a gang fight, of which Glasgow had more than their fair share of. On the brighter side the wee guy that owned the "bunnet" shop must have been "rolling in it".

Helenslea Park, home of Parkhead Juniors F.C. (Founded 1880 ~ Defunct 1963). Parkhead's first ground was at the Sheddens where Old Shettleston Road and Shettleston Road meet. They then moved to Powfoot Street/Beattock Street and their ground was known as Helenslea Park, although they were known to have played some games at Helenvale Park. They were at one time the oldest team in the Scottish Junior League. Their third and final ground was once again named Helenslea Park and was located at Cuthelton Street. The club became defunct in 1964.

City Bakeries, along with many bakeries, no doubt all over the U.K. they sold "German Biscuits", but the name was changed to "Empire Biscuits" during WWI. Wonder why? I found that interesting anyway, lol.

Tenements opposite the depot were known as "The Scabby Loan" due to the fact they were completed by "scab labour" during an industrial dispute.

New Parkhead ground built on Janefield Street and even overhanging the graveyard. After complaints against the plans from families of those buried there, GCC decided anyway to grant the football club permission to go ahead with their plans for expansion. Ironically part of the ground is closed off most of the season due to lack of attendances.

Definitely Carntyne greyhound stadium, briefly used for speedway. I believe it was used at one time by a local junior club.
