THE douce suburb of Hyndland, in the West End was home only to coos in the 1890s before the city's began its westward expansion.

This picture, taken from Princes Gardens, shows the old Hyndland farm, with Hyndland Church and the original Hyndland station to the right. Far to the left, looking much like a fairy tale castle, you can see the towers of Gartnavel Royal Hospital. The tall chimney in the centre of the picture belonged to Kelvinside electric power station.

By 1898, as the city's middle classes grew wealthier on the back of the Industrial Revolution, fine sandstone villas and red tenements pushed out the coos as commuters moved in.

Today, the area is still one of the prime residential spots in the city, with house prices to match.
