govan and linthouse

Hi Govanites, I have been asked by one of your members, Tombro, to post the photos of Govan and Linthouse that I have taken in the past few years and right up to last week.
I am not from Govan, north end of the city for me but I have a love of all Glasgow and have spent a fair number of years photographing all the remaining tenements and whatever took my fancy
I will be posting them on this site
I hope you find them of some interest

Bye for now, norrie

Napier's St/ Govan Rd.
I have wanted to photograph this tenement for years and today was a good excuse to go and do it.
I think its an unusual building, never seen a tenement like it.
It has fallen into disrepair, how long can it go on like that.
Does anyone from Govan know anything about it, is by a famous architect?
Bye for now, Norrie
PS sorry to say that this building was demolished in 2008

This information a was suplied bt Ellan, a Govanite

Norie, thanks so much for the photos of Govan, that's where I lived until aged 11, in Pearce Street opposite the Pearce Institute. My mother was born in Golspie Street, which is in the photos(that's also where Tony Blair's father was brought up!)

About the Napier building in photo 321, I found the following information on the Sunnygovan site:-


Napier Street was named after Robert Napier, 'The Father of Clyde Shipbuilding' whose shipyard was here from 1842 to 1900.
Napier established his own shipbuilding yard at Govan and built many famous vessels including 'Leviathan', 'Persia' and 'Black Prince.'

Napier House was a lodging house for seamen whose ships were berthed on the Clyde or under repairs at the Govan Dry Docks.
William James Anderson, its architect, used an experimental design.
The building was partly steel framed using concrete without designed reinforcement.
It is of an Art Nouveau Glasgow style.
The top floor became Govan's first telephone exchange.
It was built between 1897-99.
Robert Napier was honoured by many countries except Britain, but when he died in 1876,
1400 of his workforce attended his funeral at the Parish Churchyard in Dumbarton.
