Shettleston Hall:
Built 1922-25 by Glasgow Corporation this large town hall was largely destroyed by fire in the early hours of the 23rd May 2008. Following the fire the majority of the building was demolished leaving just the retained facade with heavy steel beams affixed to the front (east) elevation and a large steel frame to the rear providing support to the rmeianing structure. The site as a whole is fenced off.
fThe building was constructed using a high quality red facing brick with ashlar extensively used for the doorway and around windows and as a top band on the building. The building is similar in materials and styles to other Glasgow Corporation designs of the era such as the telephone exchange on Centre Street.
