Battlefield Rest built in 1915, a  local land mark, it was a tram station and newsagent, and was once described “as the most exotic tram shelter In Scotland “. Decorated with gleaming green and cream  tiles, the “Rest” had a kiosk at the end under the  octagonal clock tower.
It became a B-listed building in 1981. In  late 1990 a demolition order was impose by Glasgow District  Council Building Control because of the unsafe and partly damage structure of the building. After a  petition was signed, with  signatures from over 1500 people, it was saved from destruction .
It was sold to a private business man Marco Giannasi who in  early 1993 started a restoration project to bring the building back to  its original state. In 1994 it was transformed into a restaurant and now today it happily  survives intact for every one to enjoy.
