Re: Sad News

I’ve struggled to write anything in response to this sad news. The words feel hollow after thinking them for the umpteenth time, let alone saying them. Last time I saw Josef was at the funeral of Lucky Poet. Not that you’d known from Josef’s manner, the irreverent and clever bastard that he was. I’m...

Hidden Glasgow Hall of Record

This forum will keep running for as long as there's a server hosting it. We're all just a tad more complicated... We have lost many valued contributors over the past few years. People who wove the threads of knowledge contained here. People who, for those of us lucky enough, became our friends. Plea...

Re: Washington Street School.

For a wee site less than 200 years old it has a complex history. The Saracen Tube Works only occupied part of the former Saracen Foundry site, the rest being taken up by a variety of businesses like store and warehousing, a mill and a cooperage. The southern two thirds of the Pentagon building occup...

Re: Washington Street School.

I don't think you're old enough to have been working in Washington St during the dates I mentioned ;P

Mcfarlane operated from Washington St for a while, before Possil.

Re: Washington Street School.

The 'Axiom' building replaced a complex of buildings that stood on the site comprising a cooperage, a mill and the Saracen Tube Works (the name Saracen being a relic of Walter Macfarlane's previous ownership of the site), it was built between 1951-55 (you can see the site being cleared for construct...

Re: Belmont Crescent School

It wasn't uncommon for small private schools to operate out of residential addresses, much like Craigholme School in Pollokshields, which has grown to encompass half a dozen villas https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Craigholme_School https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/969/28227570168_9c26054d64_c.jpg Here's s...

Re: windows in conservation area

it's not a good thing that planning permission wasn't sought, but replacing windows without consent isn't uncommon, alas. whether retrospective permission will be granted in your case will be down to the specifics of the property, i.e. whether it is listed in its own right or cited in the Conservati...

Re: Unknown street in Kelvindale

The mineral line is there in 1928, it emerges from the tunnel just to the east of Balgray Row into a relatively deep cutting which becomes visible just west of my crop. You can see what i mean about the depth of the cutting below the brow of Balgray Row as it heads west under the road viaduct in the...

Re: RIP Lucky Poet

Another gentleman lost to this world. Lost to us all. A kind, strong and funny soul who brought a smile to the face of all who met you. I count myself in that privileged number. You are a beautiful man, Scott. I’m sorry this happened. I’m sorry I never got the chance to tell you these things. I hope...
