"I'm not sure if you are aware that he police box at the foot of the High Riggs used to be located in the middle of the Tollcross junction, beside the Gents Toilets which were underground."

Clock

   Tollcross Cross Roads and Tollcross Clock

"The clock was also on the island, but the whole lot was removed in the late-1960s, if I remember rightly, when the junction was re-designed, possibly when Earl Grey Street was widened.
