That brings back memories, samsc.  There was a real art to kindling and tending a coal fire.  Many ingredients required, not just the coal but dross, briquettes, old newspaper and the kindling sticks.  I had no respect for those who used firelighters. ha ha.

The 'posh' Grosvenor cinema. My mate's uncle was the manager in the late 70s/early 80s and we would get the very occasional discount - very occasional I hasten to add.

I remember when it was the bar Bonham's but was never in the old cinema.

The cinema was the red velour seat variety.

 

Last time i was in there they were showing a series of Hitchcock films, went to see VERTIGO on the big screen.

Don't think I could have coped with Rear Window on the big screen, I would have swooned at the first sight of Grace Kelly sweeping across the screen

It didn't look that early to me, so I googled for the opening of the Glasgow Subway, and got December 14 1896, so Monday is its 124th anniversary. You can see the 'subway station' sign under the Partick Cross sign.
