The address may be Myreside Street, but it appears that the street has yet to be extended past the northern boundary of the stadium.

Carntyne, around the time of opening. Built on the site of a former trotting track, it staged its first greyhound meeting during the month of this photograph. The following year a speedway track was constructed inside the dog circuit but did not prosper. The dogs survived until 1972.
