past and future

I don't have many vintage postcards of Glasgow, which I intend to remedy soon.
This is one of the Great Western Road ( a street name that I've always loved - an address that sounds as if you have arrived!) There is a lovely site here that shows the views, past and present, of this stretch of road in the west end of Glasgow.
And in six weeks I will be back in this home of my maternal family.

  3. A trip to Scotland...how exciting. How long are you going to be staying? Your loyal fans will expect lots and lots (read tons) of photos.
