Forbes - Newsagents and Tobacconists, 1406 Shettleston Road - about 1917. Robert Forbes standing in the doorway of shop he took over in 1917 and opened as a Newsagent and Tobacconist and which was run by the Forbes family over three generations. The shop stood at the corner of Killin Street and Shettleston Road and the street names on the side of the shop wall show that Killin Street was previously Dalree Street and before that Church Road.

The Grange - about 1914. On the left the sleeper fence along the railway cutting and in the distance the bridge taking Sandyhills Road over the railway line A Large house, which due to to its close proximity to the old Shettleston to Hamilton railway line, (the Glasgow city boundary for many years) was often referred to as the last house in Shettleston. The picture shows 'The Grange' and how it looks today, the bungalow on the left in Loch Laidon St being the approximate location of the old Grange house.

225 Hamilton Road. The new Children’s Hospital at Oakpark, Mount Vernon was opened on October 5, 1921 by Thomas Thornton Macklin Dishington, Patrick, Fairlea, and Adam Lees and Lady Blythswood, in the unavoidable absence of HRH Princess Louise, Duchess of Argyll. The building has since been demolished and replaced by flats, though the entrance gate survives. The picture shows the gate as it was then and how it looks today.
