The rear of the buildings would normally be hidden away from view because they were surrounded by tenements on all sides, so the shot of the backies is quite a rare sight.
To help you with your bearings, the building to the right with the large extensions on the back, is Forbes.
Also in the backies image is the church on the far right which was across the street at Eadies Road, and is now where a block of flats is.
The picture of the back of the tenements is a great one to zoom into on the large version. Lots of ancient nooks & crannies connecting the jumble of buildings to nose around. Not too sure what's what mind you - outside toilets, sheds, dovecotes, stock rooms, who knows, probably a mix of all of these. Just looks like a huge inviting adventure playground for a 7 year old kid!
By the mid 70's it was all gone and has since been replaced by free lodgings for birds - trees!
I've included a map of the area to give you a reminder of the layout back then.
If you'd like to recall what this same stretch of road was like when it was bustling with business, there's a good photo from the 60's in the Retro Archives - 7th November 2008.
