Drygate Brewery

Drygate Brewery
( Opened May 2014)
Following on from the last post i was looking at some google views of Wellpark and stitched some.
Drygate Brewery, Glasgow
The recently announced Drygate Brewery is the building on the left hand side of the Brewery site. If it was named after the current closest streets it would not be Drygate , it would be John Knox Brewery or Ladywell Brewery.The old Drygate extended where the entrance is today, and followed a very different route. Closer to the Molendinar Burn than the main brewery, the new version of the Drygate Brewery is slightly further west than the original 1740 version.

"The Maggie" 1954

The Maggie

Along with "Whisky Galore" the film "The Maggie" provides a lot of opportunities to grab images of the locations used.

I have tried not to duplicate the information available online unless required for clarification. Of particular interest are ScotlandTheMovie , In the wake of the Maggie , IslayBlog and Route9's then and now pictures

I have split this into several posts as one would have been too large to load.

The main bar in Glasgow. NB "Yorkhill Quay" sign.
( Bar name "RE-----" ,Sitting Room,Luncheon & Snacks )

I thought i would try to figure out where the bar was supposed to be. These are the public houses marked on the 1892 OS map. So things will have changed in 60 years but still. It is supposed to be a corner i think.

The "Loch Mora Bar"
My guess for location;
