Exploring the Abandoned Glasgow Central Low Level in 1967

When people mention exploring the abandoned or urban exploration (for want of a better phrase). Most people believe that this is a modern hobby born from the rise of accessible photography.

Cumberland St Train Station

Cumberland Street Train Station serviced the Gorbals area of Glasgow until 1966 when it was closed. It was originally called Eglinton St however had its named change to avoid confusion with another near by station. Many passers-by won’t even take a second glance at the former station as they commute to the city centre from the south side, as I used to do the same until I found out about it. The day we visited we had a few unsuccessful […]
