Also for a while before it was built it was a nice green space to sit and enjoy the sun/girls/pigions

Sorry Fossil

In the heat of the moment I posted a new topic to accompany my other one on Glasgow Statues.

Would still like to see some of those scuptures that are in plain sight on the buildings within the City Centre.

Any pictures not already posted welcome.

Also note that a couple of the pictures on here could be usefull to cumbo's War Memorial thread.

Has anyone seen this site, loads of cool pictures and info on many of Glasgows sculptures:

Glasgow Sculptures

Perhaps we could all try and get photies of the sculptures that they don't have pitures of?
