Tenements, Great Western Road, Glasgow

The Great Western Road extends from St. George's Cross in the east to Anniesland Cross in the west, a distance of over 3 miles (5 km). It is Glasgow's longest and straightest road and was originally built as a toll road following an 1816 Act of Parliament. It is lined for much of its length by terraced houses and villas, separated from the road by trees. The Glasgow Botanic Gardens (1891) lie to the north.
