Springboig, Glasgow City

Springboig is a district in the east end of the Scottish city of Glasgow, situated north of the River Clyde. Springboig lies to the north of Shettleston, Budhill and east of Greenfield, Carntyne and Lightburn Hospital and Greenfield Park, and is just south of Edinburgh Road (A8) and Cranhill. Like many similar publicly funded 'schemes', these were built in the late 1940s on the outskirts of the city to alleviate the post-war housing shortage.
