The Cranstonhill Bakery, 38-42 Cranston Street, Anderston, 1967.

Constructed as a mechanised bread bakery for BM & J Stevenson in 1877-78, this building was probably designed by Salmon & Son. The bakery proper was on the left, with the flour stores 
on the right. The building was demolished in 1967 as part of the Anderston Comprehensive Development Area. The second photograph (1966) also shows the Venetian
Gothic style, and was probably designed by Salmon and Sons, architects. The photograph shows how churches, factories and housing all huddled together in a city where most people walked.
