Aerial Pictures of Dennistoun

I was born in 1939 and brought up by my Gran in Fisher St until I was 10 when we moved to Muirend.

I have been researching the family tree for this period and in particular searching for photographs of that time with limited success.

However I have discovered that Aerial Photographs are available to the public showing an area of Dennistoun that no longer exists.

This area was demolished and consists of Ark Lane, Eveline St, Edmund St, Fisher St, McIntosh St, Duke St, and Cardross St .

The photographs were taken by an RAF Mosquito aircraft in 1946 flying at low level from the North, South, East and West.

The quality of these photographs is superb and zooming in on the detail is very rewarding.

To access them Google


select BROWSE


enter SAW046338

This is one of the 7 Dennistoun photographs available to view.

Hi Bob

I am very interested in your post. I lived in Edmund St in the 50's and my grandmother was born in Fisher St more than a hundred years ago. Unfortunately, I couldn't access the photograph you speak of when I entered the number you gave. Would you mind checking that it is correct? Many thanks.

Instructions worked for me.

Always heard of these streets but never seen photos of them. Great aerial photos. Couldn't zoom in,unless you mean enlarging the browser page.

Hello again Bob

My apologies. I read the search number as having the letter 'o' instead of a zero. Thanks for the link.

Britain from Above is a great site. There's also some great shots of Parkhead and Carntyne.

You would have to download the photo and access via photoshop or picture software.

The detail is amazing
