Glasgow Corporation Tram Department, 1953-8
Previously used as an electricity substation providing power for trams and trolleybuses. Now owned by Cathcart Baptist Church and used as a community hall, come along to see drawings and videos of how the building was used.
In the Gateway Hall you will be able to see various drawings of how the building was used in a commercial way, to power the trams and trolleybuses on the south side of Glasgow. You will also be able to see videos of Glasgows trams and trolleybuses and compare this to how it is currently used. You will be able to see how the building was designed for use as a electricity sub station, yet in its present condition shows no signs of having been used in such a way. By making the comparison, you will realise how adaptable a building can be and that the Gateway hall is an great example of how a building can be converted from its former use to meet the needs on the people of Glasgow in the present.
