  • Here are the details of maps for Springburn:

  • Lanarkshire Sheet 6.03a Springburn & Possilpark 1893 - published 2011; intro by Gilbert Bell. ISBN.978-1-84784-456-9
  • Lanarkshire Sheet 6.03b Springburn 1910 - published 1986; intro by Mark O'Neill. ISBN.978-0-85054-075-8

    We have published two versions of this detailed map showing how the area changed across the years.

    The map is dominated by the North British Railway, which runs north-south through it. The 1910 version includes Eastfield engine sheds, Cowlairs Works, the Cowlairs Junctions, Possil Junction, and part of the Sighthill Branch with Springburn station. East of the railway we find Springburn itself, with Springburn Park, and Stobhill General Hospital is in the top right corner. West of the railway the map includes part of Possil Park, with Clydesdale Iron Works, Saracen Foundry, Keppoch Iron Works, Possil Iron Works. Tramways are also shown, with a tram depot on Hawthorn Street. The area is less built up on the 1893 version.

    We include selections of street directory entries on both maps.

    You might find this index map useful. The map links up with Sheets 1.15 Bishopbriggs to the north, 6.02 Maryhill to the west and 6.07 St Rollox to the south.
