Re: The Nostalgia Postcard - Glasgow Series

I remember being in the public toilet at Govan Cross many years ago(late 80's) and I was sure it had masonic decoration(eg eye, compass etc) yet the next time I was there in the 90's it was gone. Am I imagining things ?

Re: Red & white brick, industrial buildings

Hi, I believe the coloured brick style is called polychromatic and not polychrome. The white staining from bricks is salt leaching out. This is called efflorescence. :D

Re: Old Glasgow Tram Ticket Machines

The giraffe was pretty mangy, It probably was as old as the trams. My Father recently inherited a load of stuff which had belonged to his grandfather who worked on the trams between the mid 20's and mid 50's.
