Given the interest in the current rebuilding of Glasgow Queen Street here is
a BR PR&PO view of part of the station prior to a previous rebuilding.
The caption simply reads 'No 2 Booking Office : Queen Street'. The
photograph was taken on 23rd November 1955.
The board to the right of the building reads:
No 15 Window
Airdrie, Milngavie, City and District Stations, Weekly Season Tickets and
Railway Employee Privilege Tickets
A destination between Airdrie and Milngavie has been painted out. We think it may be Bothwell (closed a little earlier in the year - July 1955) - does anyone know better?
A handwritten note on the back states 'Must return Day Features' so possibly
suggests the photo was lent out for a press feature.
Top left hand corner '2/8' suggests this is one of eight of a series of
views. I only have one and two!
We think this may be the former Dundas Street entrance. This had an indoor taxi rank (left) and several arches. To orientate yourself, today the entry to the low level platforms is to the right.
