RIP Partick Central Station (1896-2007)

"Workmen yesterday sealed off the former Partick Central Station booking office in Glasgow in preparation for knocking down the building, which is thought to date from 1896 and has been praised by Historic Scotland and the Glasgow Building Preservation Trust."
(link to the Glasgow Herald article, and another in the Evening Times.)

Partick Central Station was built in 1896, in the middle of a bridge, but was more recently used as an auction.

They're going to use the site for a park or a Tesco.

We wanted to try to turn the building into a coffee house...

A coffee house would have been rad.

Yes! A coffee house with fresh fish straight from the river!
