Some road works ongoing on Tollcross Road with the Steam Road Roller parked in Mauckinfauld Road. Note the sign next to the gas street lamp. These were also known as Rockdove & Deerpark Gardens.
Still trying to date this one. The horse and cart straddling the tram tracks on the left is a Barr’s one.
Another earlier version of the above only slightly more forward.

Reverend William Auld:
William Auld was the son of the Reverend William Auld, Minister of Sir Michael Street Relief Church, Greenock and was born at Glassford in 1806. He studied at the University of Glasgow where he was a creditable student, from which he passed to the Relief Theological Hall, Paisley under the instruction of the Rev. Mr Thomson.
The Rev. William Auld was elected minister by a majority of 60 votes on the 21st November 1832 and ordained on 28th February 1833. There was an ordination dinner in the session house, for which the charge was 2s 6d; the elders being free of charge.
His Manse at Parkhead was for many years a busy marrying centre; and on the Friday of the Glasgow Fair and Hogmanay he would sometimes have ten to fifteen couples attending at his house in order to be made happy.
His Jubilee was celebrated on 24th October 1882.
He died at the manse, Parkhead on 17th April 1885 in the 79th year of his age and fifty third of his ministry and was buried in the churchyard behind the vestry in lair number 498.
An obelisk was subsequently erected to his memory by former members and friends of the church resident in the city, in conjunction with a large number of members of the church. It is of Aberdeen granite, and bears on the east side, in bronze relief, an excellent representation of his features. His wife lies beside him. A large family was reared in the old manse. One of his surviving sons was the Rev. James Auld, who was ordained by The Glasgow United Presbytery (22nd February 1875) as a missionary to Caffraria. For some years the station at Elujilo was under his charge, but since he laboured at Columba in the same colony. He was honoured by being chosen moderator of the South African Church.

Easterhill Street Shop
Mr Paterson’s grocery shop at number 104 Easterhill Street 1913 located at the corner of Corbett Street at its junction with Easterhill Street. The shop, with internal living accommodation to the rear, gave an uninterrupted view of the former Tollcross Railway Station. There, hanging in the shop window, is an advertisement for Olympia, Bridgeton Cross. 100 years on, Olympia has been restored at a cost of just under £2 million as part of Glasgow’s ongoing east-end regeneration programme. A closer look in the window reveals unwrapped loaves of bread as it was sold in those days.
