The market was named after the 19th century Irish immigrants who used it
One of Scotland's best known markets has opened for the last time, after operating for nearly 200 years.
Paddy's Market in Glasgow has seen generations of families running stalls underneath the railway arches, selling anything from shoes to cookers.
The market in Shipbank Lane, named after the 19th century Irish immigrants who used it, has become an institution.
Recently it was branded a "crime ridden midden" by Glasgow City Council, which vowed to clean up the area.
Councillor Gordon Matheson said the nature of the market had changed and there were real concerns about the amount of crime associated with it, including drug dealing and the selling of contraband items including alcohol, cigarettes and music.
"The hottest of crime hot spots in the city of Glasgow is Shipbank Lane itself," he said.
Current traders have been given notice to vacate the site by Friday
