Parkhead Stadium Station
The station was situated in a cutting overlooked by what is now called Whitby Street but which was then known as Winston Street in honour of Winston Churchill who had married a neice of Lord Newlands.
Behind the building in the background the floodlights of Celtic Park are clearly visible. One of the club's claims to fame was that the floodlight towers were the highest in the world, standing 208 feet above the playing surface.
They were first switched on on 12th October 1959 for a friendly against English champions Wolves.
