     Belvidere House was sold to the Town Council in 1870 as the site for a hospital for infectious diseases. Initially, the patients were accommodated in temporary buildings in the grounds. The mansion was demolished and a nurses' home built on the site, prior to the official opening of the hospital's permanent buildings in March 1887. Belvidere became a general geriatric hospital before it closed in 1999.

     This is the site of a shop known as the 'wee farm' on Cuthelton St when I was a boy living at number 68 in 1946. It was almost directly opposite the Fire Station ( officially opened 8th December 1952 and built on a site known as the 'watt'r tank') The shop was still there a year or two ago (it is 2015 now). Turnstiles into the Parkhead Juniors FC ground were right beside the shop, although the pavilion/dressing rooms were on Methven St.

    A childhood friend of my brother and me ,called Adam Irvine, lived in one of the ground floor flats in that close up till when we moved away in 1954/55.I think he joined the Merchant Navy in the early 1960s.

    previously the site of an engineering works of a sort, 'Donald Clark' I think it was called.I moved to the corner close across the road from the gates as three year old in 1946.The works signalled 1.00 pm by sounding a siren, making the same sound as the war-time 'all clear'. Domestos/Stergene took over round about 1951.

    Not knowing anything of French, we used to say Val dee Travers.( I only discovered a few years ago that Val de Travers is a place in Switzerland where they mined asphalt in the late 18th century) .

    The cabs of the lorries were painted yellow, and the doors had the name 'Val de Travers' and 'trinidad asphalt' painted on them, so we always thought the tar came from trinidad.

    On the brick wall beneath that big chimney, which was on the 'roadway' down to the cycle track and the park and the allotments and so down to the banks of the Clyde, there was a small metal door.

    As kids we would try to see through the little space at the top of the door, to see what was being burnt. Hospital waste, presumably, but our imaginations would run away with us.
