Where is this street scene?
Can you name the street? Look carefully and you can see a railway footbridge at the far end.
Drag the little slider from the right to see a more recent view.
This is Princes Square from Pollokshaws Road. The street was renamed Marywood Square in the early 1930s. The footbridge at the far end crossed the railway line to Darnley Road, but was taken down in the 1990s.
This Where am I? entry provoked responses split 50:50 between this being Pollokshields West or Maxwell Park. So here’s some more evidence.
Although only Maxwell Park Station building survives after a careful restoration, it wasn’t the only island station house on the line. Pollokshields West had a station house of the same design, as seen here, until the late 1980s.
