I wonder why is it in Hebrew. That building was never a synagogue was it?

Oh right, i've been in the Gushetfaulds site, just didn't connect this doorway because it's further along past the brazen head.

It's a wee bit over-done for me.
Too few hours in the day.

Looks like a nice original piece, but I do have something of a problem with the white plastic bell push though.

Tenement entrance in Shettleston. This building is beside the Academy building and is one of two with the little garden area to the front of the building.

The interesting bit is the carving around the entrance, which extends from the actual door to include the small window to the side, and is repeated on each entrance. Decorative only, or did it have a function in the original building?

I saw a beautiful door while wandering about mount florida last night. I'm moving there on sunday, so once the boxes are all in the flat (bugger unpacking, it can wait. Well, the pc and xbox will get unpacked.) i'll nip out and get some pictures.
