Re: Is this Art? Discuss -

It's worthless crap that requires meaningless abstractions to justify its existence and if it's symbolic of anything it is of Western civilisation in terminal decline. There, I've said it and I feel so much better. Call me a philistine if you want. I no longer care.

Re: Where am I? 21 April 2010

Mmmm, Rats! Well done, buy yourself a drink on my virtual tab in the virtual bar Viceroy. How long has that bridge been there? Seems a bit radical, letting people onto the island.... Sorry about that, Sunflower :) The bridge has only been there a matter of weeks. Like you I am a bit surprised that ...

I think it was a called SEDDON pick up truck. Our one was green. Have not seen one in more than 50 years.The engine was diesel and knocked...

Re: Buses Today

The Arriva 17 goes through the Clyde Tunnel and is quite a handy service for getting from north west to south west. I often use it to travel between the West End and Cardonald. It also goes past the Mitchell Library, which is another good thing about it as far as I am concerned. The timetable is a b...

Re: Buses Today

Someone told me if firstbus drivers are running early, its a disciplinary offence. Running early has always been a disciplinary offence since this is reckoned to be within the driver’s control, although during quieter periods it may not all that easy to avoid. It was certainly thus in the old Corpo...

Re: Bricks

Found these in a field near Hawkhead House Farm http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e284/jozefK/paisley/P1000926.jpg The Wikipedia entry for Accrington in Lancashire states: the town is famed for manufacturing the hardest and densest building bricks in the world, "The Accrington NORI" (iron)...

Re: New Transport Museum at Riverside

In case you don't already know (and of course many of you may not be interested one way or the other) the old Transport Museum will be closing a few weeks from now, on Sunday 18th April. This is to allow everything to be prepared for display at the Riverside Museum, which is scheduled for opening in...

Re: help needed in remembering pub name up sauchiehall street..

RCAHMS has a couple of pics (GW1226 & 1227) of The Grafton dating to 1971 so it dates back to at least then. http://www.scotlandsplaces.gov.uk/search_item/index.php?service=RCAHMS&id=246803 Probably was The Grafton after all, then, although I can't seem to associate the name with the pub. P...

Re: help needed in remembering pub name up sauchiehall street..

I remember visiting Graftons / McPhabbs occasionally in the 1970's but I've been racking my brains trying to recollect what it was called at that time (wasn't Graftons, I'm pretty sure of that). The only thing I really remember about the place is that they had a gorgeous barmaid whose daytime job wa...

Re: help needed in remembering pub name up sauchiehall street..

As with many other Stakis hotels it was very popular on Sundays. Its popularity diminished when the pubs opened. I lived in Park Road during the 1970's and used to visit the Charing Cross Hotel now and again on Sundays. It was always absolutely mobbed. To make matters worse the special licence stip...
