St Enoch Square, Glasgow, looking towards Argyle Street. Only one bus can be seen: Western SMT Guy Arab UF (EAG462) Alexander C41F built 1952. Where to start....two trams are seen heading east, a "Kilmarnock Bogie" followed by a standard , partially hidden by the modernistic looking information bureau, which was relocated to George Square later. A BR Scammel lorry is clearly visible. The steep hill to the right behind the "Starlight Special" advert panels was North Drive. Western SMT buses left there for Paisley and Renfrew, passengers boarding the buses as they sat facing downhill on the "wrong" side of the road! I have no idea how they turned as the street got narrower as it squeezed along the side of St Enoch Station. The building in Buchanan Street and Argyle Street (H Samuel) has survived as "Frasers" store. The clock confirms the time as 11:20 am.
