That ones just reminded me of Mayor's in Scotstoun // Whiteinch ???

it really is an experience. They unlock the door to let you in, then lock it again....it has three floors packed full of everykind of thing possible...and when you go for the first time you get given a guided tour.


I've got pictures somewhere...which i probaly wont be able to find...

Not been in there yet. I've seen the car parked outside it covered in useful objects like bucket & spades and beach balls in the middle of January? got to give them credit for trying though. ::):

You wait ages for an "eating out" joke and then two come along at the same time!

As for the "glitterball motor", I think that sounds far too flashy a car for you ...

More shopfonts!

Actually....Daggs closed in 1973...so how come you've been inside and managed to take photos from the outside? Perhaps it smells so old because the ghosts who let you in, quickly skampered.

ps. only joking.

You must go to this shop. The wallpaper must be the original the light fittings the same. Its just a step back in time (excuse the pun). Its old old old 8)

Very reasonable for fixing yer time piece by the way
