Guess the roof?

Postby gordonjcp » Wed Apr 27, 2011 8:11 pm

Hey folks, long time no post ;-) A change of job has brought me closer to the world of urban exploration again. So, without further fuss or ado, I bring you - Guess The Roof!

See if you can guess who's roof I was on today - I'll start with a nice and straightforward one.

Sign of the times. The Beresford Hotel gives a good starting point as a landmark building , but I would have been guessing without Google Maps :D

Aw c'mon.

You have Charing Cross Tower on the left and the King's Theatre behind the Elmbank Crescent car park straight in front. The possibilities are limited somewhat.

It's a good idea. All we need is a photo of the chimney heads in Cathcart road and we could keep it going for moths unless someone cheats and asks their dad.

Maybe we could even start a thread on entomology.
