Heck, I don't really mind, that's the aim of the thing after all, but it was the first time I'd created a proper page rather than tweak existing stuff or add a stub, and I was going to use it as a learning exercise, and whoosh, there it went, right before my eyes.


Nothing to stop you changing it back though.

Thanks for that one. I often think folk think I'm losing it a bit when I tell them Elspeth was ousted from her post at the People's Palace. My one touch with sanity is a ET clipping from 13/11/00 with her photo captioned "ELSPETH KING, curator of the People's Palace and the victim of a mean-spirited political vendetta". No details in the article, but I only seem to have one page of a two page spread :oops:

Interesting about the play, where was the group? My mother was associated with some writers in the Dolphin centre and Crownpoint school back then.

True, but if it doesn't conform to style, someone will just revert it. Take a look at the page history. Search Smudge or Smudge (cat) then look at the page history. I'm not arguing the change as such, I just wanted to get there myself.

I know who did it, and coincdentally I've been in changing his pages about Glasgow Green, and he happily accepted my changes and even polished them up.

Have a look wilkpedia theres some info there. I have just completed a new guide book for Glasgow and Andrew Pollock at the People's Palace allowed me to take a photograph of his ceramic Smudge made by Margery Clinton to include in the spread.

Resurrecting an old thread here - don't know if there's anything more recent? Anyway, have just discovered that there is now a kind of "memorial" to Smudge at the People's Palace, tho' easily missed - it's on one of the flagtones at the side entrance near where picnic benches are. don't think many folk go in or out that way though :(

This was the first time I had heard about Smudge! If you do a quick Google there's an article about her published in an Ohio newspaper from 1988 - she truly was an international phenomenon!

Thanks for that - just came across that article a few days ago but wasn't sure whereabouts in the States it was from. :)
