Glasgow Hippodrome

The Glasgow Hippodrome was built in 1897 at New City Road, Cowcaddens, under the supervision of E H Bostock, the proprietor of the adjoining zoo. The architect was Bertie Crewe. At various times in its existence it was used as a circus, zoo, variety theatre, skating rink, dance hall, menagerie, exhibition hall, cinema and barracks. In 1919 it was sold to the British Traction Motor Company, and became a garage.
