Just for a change I decided a couple of weeks ago to pay a visit to the Scotland Street School Museum. It's free of charge to get in yet it's one of the most interesting museums anywhere and full of nostalgic exhibits for anyone old enough to remember.
The front of the school. Built by Charles Rennie Mackintosh between 1903 and 1906 it served Tradeston and the inner city wards for 100 years until falling populations in the surrounding tenements forced its closure as citizen's were decanted from the slums to new houses on the outskirts.
basically a modern castle and was far more ambitious and over budget than the city fathers had envisaged.
Byres Road Subway Station. The hill walker bears some resemblance to Cameron McNeish. Or is that just my notion?
Highly recommended and a fun way to pass a few hours. Don't be surprised if you meet Cilla Black in the school. That's not a joke. She's here every day. A young version.
Pinched this video from Alistair who showed it to me ages ago. So good it still makes me laugh every time. A few swear words but a very funny sketch by Eddie Izzard.
