Anniesland is an intriguing wee district at Anniesland Cross, at the junction of Gt Western Rd and Crow Rd

The Ascot cinema - a lovely art deco building - was built in 1939 and must have been the perfect place to watch Fred dance with Ginger. It became a bingo hall in the 70s and was demolished by the barbarians in 2001. The frontage was saved as a facade for the new blocks of flats behind it. See

Anniesland Court is Scotland's tallest listed building - It was built in 1968, and as Wiki says, the more famous Goldfinger-designed (and later built) Trellick Tower looks very like it
