Convenient corner for needy folk

St Vincent place is one such spot.

As busy back in the early 1900s as it is today, modern shoppers will immediately recognise the road as it bisects Buchanan Street.

Once home to insurance companies, banks and offices, it also boasted its fare share of bars and tobacconists. Although many of the grand offices are now sub-divided, today you can still enjoy a pint, a plate of food and stock up on the evil weed in the street.

Still there too are the subterranean public toilets. Once a vision of copper and vitreous china, all bearing the Shanks of Barrhead logo, today they are bog-standard loos. The fact they remain at all is a small mercy for desperate locals.
