The Glasgow Police Museum is not the same as the former museum at Pitt St. The Strathclyde Police Museum was more akin to Scotland Yard's Black Museum.

The shop doesn't appear in the Glasgow Post Office Directory until 1929. The revealed signage appears to date from the 50s or early-mid 60s.

Re: Hospitals & Asylums

With all the possible changes that are coming it should provide interesting viewing for the next few years. It could perhaps have its own thread, like Stobhill and the Southern? This is the only part which is actually listed: http://i66.tinypic.com/2mmzeqp.jpg But I believe Sanctuary are still acce...

Re: Mystery Tunnel in Partick

But what are we looking at? Is it the confluence of two culverted streams? Is it Victorian? It's the old outfall for the Pinkston Burn. The burn does not appear to be natural, instead appears to have been built linking the Clyde and Forth canal to the Kelvin, possibly as a relief for water levels. ...
