Botanic Gardens Station

These are the ventilation shafts used to allow the acrid fumes of steam trains to escape into the atmosphere. The station platform is still visible through these apertures today. The station building, like many on the Glasgow Central Line was a much admired structure, in this case built by James Miller. After the closure of the line, the building was latterly used as a nightclub. It was in this guise that it burnt down in 1970.
