When this image was taken in the 1960s,The Club Bar was then owned by Celtic Football Fame John Bonnar.

This very old and popular Gallowgate howff was originally called "Wyper's Bar."

In the summer of 1879 James Wyper, son of the founder of the business John Wyper acquired this pub. His father had pubs in many parts of the city including Gallowgate, Dale Street, Shuttle Street, Main Street, Bridgeton, Dalmarnock Road, London Road and Sauchiehall Street.
