I read that in the Herald today and thought: "What the hell ever happened to Ronnie....? One minute he was there keeping us all on topic and next thing he was gone". What's the story Ron - given that you always (well, mostly) had lots of interest to say (I even bought your book!), is this ...

The remains of - I think - Meadowside Street. Soon to be swallowed up by the Glasgow Harbour "development" by the looks of it: http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a125/eachdorcha/DSC02524.jpg http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a125/eachdorcha/DSC02527.jpg http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a12...

I've often thought of starting a thread on this, but never got round to it, so well done GKen for beating me to it. I reckon the streets are the real prize. There will probably always be cobbled lanes, coz the council can't be arsed to do anything else with them, but unlike Edinburgh (not often I fi...
