Re: Your most loved, & most hated, areas of Glasgow ?

Govanhill apparently has a remarkably high rate of alien abduction.
Not something I know of first hand but you can be assured that a nice pot of tea from the Go Slow Cafe at 452 Victoria Road
(0141 423 9886)
is by far the best way to recuperate.

Re: If Money Was No Object

I would live in one of the upper floors of the old RSAMD theatre building on Buchanan Street. Have visited it a few times when it was in use and the rooms above the theatre are magnificent — large open plan with side rooms. Plaster work details with musical notation and instruments. Indeed if money ...

Re: The Glasgow Taliban

"Jimshaed Sharif, 50, says he has become a target for fanatical Muslims because he plays music and serves alcohol." The perpetrators will have a busy time in Glasgow then - not unknown for a few measures of the hard stuff to pass over the counter of a Muslim owned establishment. Indeed the...

Re: Paddy's Market loses its licence

I was told by a friend that porn movies were made at some premises under the arches. Made and sold. A transparent urban myth. Of course it is,iBob - of course it is. As usual you are talking straight out your arse. The pornography market has been saturated for decades. Over production in several lo...

Re: 1st ever bicycle accident: Glasgow 1842.

Kirkpatrick MacMillan rode his new invention from Drumlanrig Castle to Glasgow in 1842, taking him two days to do the 68 miles. When he arrived there, he knocked down a wee lassie and was fined. What a marvellous piece of history. Any idea where specifically the accident happened? Wouldn't it be gr...

Re: Calling all Glasgow Newshounds!

...if you had just introduced yourself ( in the real world ) to a group of strangers, would you ask a favour first ? — before contributing to the conversation ? Perhaps, but this isn't the real world. It is a construct. Specifically intended for people with an interest in Glasgow's history and deve...

Re: Calling all Glasgow Newshounds!

My first post was meant in the friendliest way possible, and I apologise for not paying my dues as it were around the thread. I do however think it's unfriendly to attack, en mass, someone who was genuinely asking for help from those with information. I won't make the same mistake again, I promise,...

Re: Gorbals Photography archive

Thanks for the links - they have no info on the missing photographs or the Gorbals Photography archive.

They and their funding seem to have vanished into thin air.

Re: Gorbals Photography archive

Do you know from whom, and when? The photographs were inherited from the defunct 'Gorbals Fair Society'/'Gorbals Arts Group' about six years ago. (both these organisations are now defunct — with financial impropriety associated with the GFS) The funding was made available from GCC (as far as I know...

Gorbals Photography archive

I have been trying to track down a community organisation called "The Gorbals Photography Archive". It received significant funding a few years ago but hasn't been heard of since. They took control of a large collection of Oscar Marzaroli studio prints as well as several dozen prints from ...

Re: Police Museum to close

A great shame. I never understood why the museum in Pitt Street continued after this museum opened. Surely it must have been suggested they merge. (Pitt Street is only open by appointment because it is in the centre of a secure building — often on security alerts.) Totally unsuitable. The entire bui...
