Pollokshaws Burgh Hall

This is a close-up of Pollokshaws Burgh Hall, which was gifted to Pollokshaws by Sir John Stirling Maxwell (of the family who gifted nearby Pollok Park to Glasgow). It was opened in 1898, and despite being threatened with closure in the 1990s is still open and used for various functions and events.

You can see an old photo of the building in its heyday here.

    Stairs to heaven…(my first thought!)

    It seems so sad to see old buildings closed and torn down for other things. I think more people are seeing historical value in old buildings and trying to save them.

    An excellent capture!

    Thanks Marc – my whole-building photo wasn’t so good unfortunately. Will have to go back sometime 🙂
