Woodside (& St Georges Cross)

Woodside is bounded on the north and east by Maryhill and the  Forth and Clyde canal and by Great Western Rd and Woodlands to the west and south; see also Kelvinbridge and Churches. This view shows Gt Western Rd on the left; the view up to Maryhill Rd in the middle and St Georges Rd on the left. The community council website is excellent  - www.woodsideonline.org.uk

The beginning of the long Maryhill Rd 

'Presented to the people of Glasgow by the Cooperative Wholesale Society'.  This 1897 sculpture stood on the old Co-op building at the cross until the building was demolished in 1985 - the sculpture was saved and given its new freestanding site in 1988.
