A shorter street for the third Streets of Glasgow walk of the morning but interesting all the same with two interesting examples of street art – an etching of a woman in side profile and an advertisement for the nearby fish shop – plus a handsome church and some interesting shops. The bookshop advertised ‘A Library of Olfactive Material’, so smells. Whatever works. A quirky exhibition. There was a derelict building on the corner that I saw better from St. Andrews Square (post follows next week) which was one of the few less salubrious parts of the street, dominated by student flats and by that aforementioned handsome church. I stood by its railings and looked back down to the railway bridge and realised the city had changed in a few hundred yards. The sky had opened up a bit more, the buildings a little less high. Decent.
Thanks for reading. This is the eighty-seventh Streets of Glasgow post here on Walking Talking. Other nearby streets featured here include St. Andrew’s Square (next week), Parnie Street and Gallowgate. The Streets of Glasgow page features a full list of posts in the series so far.
The Saturday Saunter will be on hiatus this week so the next post will be St. Andrew’s Square next week.
