Re: Buried chemical waste hazard

How about some buried radium? In 1938 the Western Infirmary Radiotherapy Dept. acquired a radium beam unit which carried three grammes of radium. However, with the fear of air strikes during WWII, a 50ft deep steel-lined concrete shaft was constructed near Dumbarton Road to store the radium for the ...

Re: Glasgow Blind Asylum

Both food and dining area. :-) Albeit, after you've been there a few weeks, you realise that the menu on every day of the week is the same as it was on the same day the previous weeks. Yes, they have specific specials on the same day each week. Oh, an...

The impression I got from the tour(and I could be mistaken due to information overload - was that there was TWO tunnels adjacent, one the original Central Line (now Argyle) and the 'hidden' one, that headed off in the direction of the 'Royal infirmary'. This has been puzzling me. I've been on the t...

Re: Painted Advertising

I love them unrestored. I had one near me which was uncovered around 12 years ago after a modern billboard was removed. At that time the colours were relatively fresh and you could still clearly read approximately 75% of the original advert. Now you can't even decipher the brand name which occupied...

Re: george square accident

The news channels are sick f**kers, repeatedly asking traumatised witnesses to describe in detail what it was like seeing someone get ploughed down, and Kay Burley signing off with "Six people who went to do their Christmas shopping today will not be going home tonight".

Re: Baxter House, Lowther Terrace

Stunning. A few scruffy bits but glad to see it hasn't fallen to fire or metal thieves. Sadly it appears there was a bit of lead theft from the roof, but the damage could have been a lot worse. There's some water damage inside, but no sign of metals being ripped out, etc. Will it be restored to its...

You're full of shite :)

Seriously though, get yourself down to the former chicken battery farm next time your down. It is truly bizarre, and Sharon and me think we may have validated the tales of the roof being used as tennis courts for the female forkforce.
