Pollokshields West Station seen from the Terregles Avenue entrance, in 1987 (Ewan Crawford, Railscot), and again in 2018. The station opened when the Cathcart Circle was completed c 1894. The station originally included a large station house much like the sole surviving example at Maxwell Park, but it was demolished not long after this photograph was taken.
