Old Photograph Double Decker Passenger Bus Auchenshuggle Glasgow Scotland

Old photograph of a Double Decker Passenger Bus in Auchenshuggle, Glasgow, Scotland. Auchenshuggle, meaning, the rye field, in Gaelic, is an area of the city of Glasgow. It is the easternmost part of the Braidfauld Ward of the City of Glasgow. The ward runs westwards about a mile and a half to Springfield Road, just short of Celtic Park, home of Celtic Football Club. The name was made famous throughout the city by Glasgow Corporation Tramways. Auchenshuggle was the eastern terminus of tram service number 9 and was duly carried on the destination boards of tramcars. Service No 9 ran between Auchenshuggle and Dalmuir West, a district of Clydebank. The service was extended from its previous terminus at Springfield Road in 1922. The last regular tram ran on 1 September 1962. The route was taken by bus service No 64.
