    1. You’re right to, it’s very pretty & rustic. There were some gorgeous buildings in the city. It’s a shame the Victorian were such enthusiastic demolitionists in the name of Improvement.

    1. I’m really happy you’re enjoying them. I think my favourite out of the above views has to be No. 687, a wee cottage with laundry out to dry where Buchanan St meets Sauchiehall Rd (now St), I guess it’s near where the steps lead up to the Royal Concert Hall now.
