006.03 This name applies to the whole of the Turnpike road from the end of Castle Street at St. Rollox in Glasgow, to the Post Office at Springburn. The numbering of the houses commences from the end of Castle Street, & is continued on the west side of the road to Springburn P.O [Post Office]; crossing the road they are numbered back to the point from which they began. As the main, or principal street of Springburn, and according to the corner tickets & the authorities, the name cannot be said to apply further than it is written on the Examination Trace - i.e. between Flemington Cottage & the Post Office. The first corner ticket in Springburn (coming from Glasgow) is on the house at the corner of "Hill St."; the last, on a house opposite the P.O[Post Office]. "Centre & Hill Streets" are off "Springburn Road." The R.C. School is about the centre of it - on the east side.
