Thanks for all your kind and positive comments.
RE the black structure? I'm sure someone on here will know. I can't even remember which building it was on.

these pictures are inspiring :)

my favourite is the third one viewing along the glass roof

I also like the 1st pic posted on this thread looking down on the rear of the Grant Arms. It would go well to complete my collection here: viewtopic.php?f=15&t=8527&p=171624&hilit=rear+grant#p171624

Very interesting pics indeed. Incidentally the mystery building is that big yellow sandstone one on the corner of Argyle Street and Buchanan Street, I think. (Hope these coordinates work. Bing Map, Bird's-Eye view. looking East.) Alternatively it's Cathcart Road.

It's the exit to the Bothwell Street Tunnel.

Then it again it might house the machinery for the lifts at frasers.

Maybe Grahamston has been rebuilt vertically inside Frasers and that is the only exit.Or it houses the Pollok Centre Clock.The list could go on.

I'd guess at the black thing housing a water tank.
