Re: Saw a pair of goosanders on the Kelvin, today.

Have you some pictures of your own for us to see? ........ it would need to be a good camera to take a decent photo of them in the middle of the Kelvin. How true :roll: http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2735/4448735310_0dd09519a8.jpg (2 March 2010 from the bridge at the Botanic Gardens entrance (near ...

Re:

The Odeon Shettleston opened as the Broadway in 1930 designed by prolific Glasgow architect James McKissack for the Singleton chain; it was sold and re-named Odeon in 1936, and closed in 1967. In the pics below it was a bingo hall, but has since been demolished... http://www.survivingcinemas.org.uk...

Re: Battle Burn

As teens, we'd play on a small motorcycle in the park..... flying across the cricket pitch & up the hill fast as possible to see who'd catch the best 'air' at the top of the hill.... totally wrecked a 50cc Yamaha over a couple of weeks. Anyone remember the hotel at the other end of mt. vernon av...

Re: When the hurricane hit Glasgow 1968

Does anyone remember this? I was 14 and remember watching the Red Road Flats swinging about like crazy. I also remember tenement buildings having tarpaulins on their roofs for years afterwards, the maisonettes at Fountainwell road lost their roofs as did Kirkie baths. Substantial loss of life and d...

Re: Thread Dates
