Something a bit different today.
Yesterday I had occasion to be walking through this part of Glasgow and as it was a bright sunny (but bitterly cold) day, I thought I'd capture a flavour of this part of the City for you.
V 1: St. George's Mansions at Charing X was built in 1901 in the red sandstone that was so typical of many commercial buildings and tenement flats of the era.
V 2: To the left of St. George's Mansions, Woodlands Road heads west in the direction of Glasgow University and the 'West End'.
V 3: St. George's Mansions, St. George's Road and the M8 Motorway: the M8 connects Greenock to Edinburgh and here cuts through the City between steeply rising ground on either side (Park Circus to the west and Garnethill to the east).........many fine old buildings were demolished and so enabling this section to be built.
Nothing too clever about any of these, just documentary shots at the time, more or less straight from the camera, but giving a flavour of this part of the City.
My thanks to all who commented on Remnants of Caledon.
