Good to see this thread still going. Where was this one? No prize for the correct answer I'm afraid, save the smug satisfaction of being right.

Le dùrachd,

I think that bit will be staying as it`s on the wall of the enclosed link stairway to the category `A` listed accommodation building`s. Up until now all I know is that we won`t be knoking down the accommodation building`s. As it doesn`t concern the rest of the Demo, I will know very little about it.
Here`s another mosaic from inside the accommodation building`s

Artist Sam brightens up Kingston Bridge with Commonwealth Games-inspired mural

GLASGOW City Council have commissioned a new sport-themed mural to help deter graffiti vandals.
The artwork - which shows a team of swimmers - is being completed under the Kingston Bridge at Anderston.
It joins a number of other murals across the city including nine Commonwealth Games-inspired paintings on all nine of the bridge's support columns.

We're in a deprived area ~ so we need Muriels.

The sky & clouds are fair enough, but the sporting nonsense
appears to have foolhardy Kim Il Jong / Berlin 1936 shades.
