Howdy guys, re the metal grill things, we have one in stirling that coveres a light well that is for a 'normal' casement window for an old terrace house! (Queen st for the intrepid explorer) Will try to get a picture. Might yours not be the same??

Reading over this thread again noticed I forgot to add probably the most obvious prisms on Union Street at Argyle Street

back on the case of 422 Sauchiehall Street from page 2 of this thread
Image





Image





As I suspected there was an underground passageway that ran from numbers 400 – 422.
An area of this is still visible below Ashfield House at number 402.

still no access to below number 422

not exactly City Centre but quite close by at 110 - 120 Great Western Road

I was excited at the prospect of what could be below this set of circular prisms similar to the 420 Sauchiehall Street and Hope Street types
Image





Image




Image




Image




Image

no tunnels or passageways :(
each area below the circular prisms have been sectioned off to form individual basement units

round the corner in Cromwell Street
Image

As I headed west I couldn’t help but notice another couple of prisms on Great Western Road just before Hamilton Park Avenue and directly across the road at the junction of Oakfield Avenue and again at the junction of Kersland Street :)
