Two Ways. 2007.
The Two Ways was the first pub in the R C Nesbitt TV Series. The pub was filmed at least the external shots for every episode of the original 90’s run of series, but it is not in Govan, it is in Finnieston at the top end of Argyle Street.
Etch of Buchanan Scott & Co. 1888.
Update 28th May 2009.
I was passing Argyle Street today and noticed that the Two Ways was being renovated it was completely stripped bare right down to the original brick work. What was more interesting was the name of the premises, “Finnieston Station Bar and Lounge.” The lettering was well preserved as it was painted directly onto the stone-work.
The name was in great condition and was probably last seen over 100 years ago. I was so exited that I immediately got my camera out to record this event as it will be covered over shortly when the workmen are finished. Will the pub be reopened after this work is finished, I hope so. I will keep you updated on the progress of this very old Glasgow Public House.

As seen nothing much has changed from the above old etch. May 2009.
A reminder that Buchanan Scott & Co. Ltd owned the premises. May 2009.

Looks like these premises are going to be a pub after all.
After major refurbishment inside and out the pub has a new name too “Brass Monkey.”
The Brass Monkey is not like the Old Man’s Pub as it was when it was the Two Ways, it is now a friendly and modern pub for all ages.
