Love them or loath them, those of us who grew up during the 3 retro decades are the ones who lived with multis most. There were none before that period, and since that time many have come a tumblin' down into oblivion!
The ones in the photos here are the Derby Street multis, themselves due to be demolished next year.
The top picture makes a very satisfying abstract image to me and is of Butterburn Court, snapped on 2nd April 1985.
Middle photo was taken from the corner of North George Street & Church Street, and captured on 20th September 1984.
It features a hotchpotch of Hilltown housing, from the corner cottage at the front, to the derelict tenements on the right, with the multis at the back of it all.
Quite a lot of wasteland in-between as well, but one place that was active in amongst all this, was the cream coloured building - The Ladbroke Social Club.
The bottom picture is of the same area but from higher up, this being the view from Carnegie Tower on 30th July 1985.
You'll notice the rough bit of land beside the corner cottage has become modernised, and in fact wipes out half of Church Street.
The road running from the bottom-left with the empty tenement, is Caldrum Street.
It's good to view these Hulltoon humdingers on a grander scale, so to bring up the enlarged versions, just click onto the pictures.
