In his introduction to 'The Old Closes And Streets Of Glasgow' William Young explains that the newly acquired right "to alter and reconstruct several of the more densely built areas of the city...would remove many old and interesting landmark...The ground storeys of the buildings which formerly lined the four streets branching from the Cross were mostly piazzas" and Young cites the subject of this photograph as a reliable example of one of these old piazzas.
