Re: Lord Provost's lamplights?

Here's a pic of one of Glasgow's lamp posts... spotted in Stratford-upon-Avon. There was an area around the big theatres full of lamp posts like this from all around the country, and they all had plaques on them saying which council had donated it. I'm not sure what the deal was, perhaps the provost...

Re: Hidden History of Mental Health: Mitchell Library 6 - 20 Oct

did anyone go and see this exhibition yet? I think they used some of my photos (and possibly some other folks here?), but I've not had a chance to see it.

the shape of it might suit the market idea. basically long station platforms, with a couple minor spaces that could be separate rooms. the platforms wouldn't accommodate anything much larger than market stalls. of course, if you filled in the tracks (or removed the platforms) so it was all one level...

Uni Takeaway on Byres Rd, for best value. Something like £3.10 for a margarita, extra toppings 50p. But very tasty.

saw this in the Metro as well. Interestingly fails to mention the history of abuse that went on there. Coincidentally I got an email today from an ex-resident: I wanted to thank you for posting your Humbie slideshow on the web. I spent two summer terms there in the 50's when it was very much a Child...

Sorry am i missing something here? graffiti is an eyesore, it is vandalism. The city is a pure mess, every where ye look its full of daft scribbles, even on road signs. I dont reckon it should be given any attention in any way. Posting it on the web gives these folk more publicity than they already...
