282 Moffat Street, Gorbals, Glasgow. Demolished.
Dick Barton was situated at the corner of Moffat Street and Rutherglen Road. Dick Barton never owned this pub however the landlord Richard Barton named it in 1960.
Moffat Street was originally called South York Street and the pub that sat on this corner in the late 1880s was Anderson’s Vaults, named after John Swan Anderson. Mr Anderson continued to hold the licence until 1912 when Owen McCabe acquired the pub. Mr Owen also owned a pub at 5 West Campbell Street, many will still remember this old pub as the City Rendezvous.
Other well known names to hold the licence was James L Higgins and Thomas McMurtrie Wilson.
The pub was demolished in the early part on the 1960s.
