Glasgow Green

Spent the afternoon in Glasgow yesterday. 

The Glasgow Green area contains so much of Glasgow's history.  Prince Charles Edward Stuart (Bonnie Prince Charlie) rallied his Jacobite troops there in 1745 - a wee snippet of history for you!

The former Templeton Carpet Factory is an amazing building!  It was a bit of a dull day yesterday, so my photograph doesn't really do it justice.  The building was designed by Sir William Leiper and completed in 1892.

I also took some photos of the Doulton Fountain - an amazing piece of sculpture - the details are incredible.

Didn't visit the People's Palace, saving that for another day - went to the Barras instead!

Don't forget that if you want to see the photos in more detail, click on them
and then click on the wee plus sign.

Love, Liz

Oh the Barras. Did you take any pics of the Barras? To be honest I'd have gone there too.
