THINGS rarely stand still for long in Glasgow and in 1960 the historic Pollokshaws Cross was about to change beyond all recognition.

Although the round toll house still stands, now isolated on a busy roundabout, all the old tenements were soon swept away to allow for road realignment and new housing.

Pollokshaws was an autonomous burgh in Renfrewshire before it became part of Glasgow in 1912.

The toll house, built around 1800 at the junction of Pollokshaws Road and Barrhead Road, is a surviving example of the old burgh's rural architectural style. SEND US YOUR PICTURES
