Partick Cross Subway Station in Dalcross Pass

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know what was located behind the Halls Retail shop (1965)

at the old Partick Cross Subway station which is now Kelvinhall Subway station.

In the piece of land which is enclosed now by Dalcross Lane & Dalcross Rd.

Any information would be great.thanks

Not much change out of my 1960s street map, I'm sorry to say. I had a rummage around Hidden Glasgow and there's one mention of it I can find, again of little help.

My guess is that it's always been part of the subway network in one way or another.

PHA had plans to develop it for housing a few years back but that seems to have fallen by the wayside. The PHA website doesn't have a search facility. Perhaps the plans might have suggested earlier use.

There definitely was a small boat yard there; I remember as a young apprentice being sent to get special fastners and marine varnish from the place.

I remember being told to go for a 'b@stard' file and refusing until my journeyman showed me a catalogue reference to such files :-)

That reminded me ov this joke:

Guy goes intae a tool shop and asks furra basturd file

New wummin behind ra coonter starts screamin that he swore at her, manager comes and explains that its ra akshul name ov a file.

Some time later a workie comes in and asks furra file, ra wummin says izzit a basturd wan yur wantin

Wurkie says naw that wee c**t over ther onra shelf wull dae fine
