They adverts bring back some memories of the Toon when I was a youngster. Old enough to be at the Regal pictures before it burnt down:lol: Few still on the go East Port Bar, Alhambra (revived after being a bingo hall, Alari's?, Rennies, Andrew Thomson & City Hotel. Remember the Cresta Bar up Abbey View from when I went to High School reputed to have been some place used to walk past it going to the chippy at dinner time.

Courtesy of Glasgow Doors Open Day, I had a bit of a walking tour of the four Hampden Parks today...

Really interesting talks by Graeme Brown and Ged O'Brien.

The new mural on the back of Hampden Bowling Club is cracking. IMG_20190922_154924.jpegIMG_20190922_161005.jpegIMG_20190922_172756.jpegIMG_20190922_173143.jpeg

A good few years now. Don't think there is a sit-in chippy at the moment in the town. There is one at Duloch but it always seems to be closed for refurbishment and is at the moment IIRC.

A moving picture piece. England 2 Scotland 3 in 1951 with a bit at the end about the Stone of Destiny. Picture quality is better than a lot from that era which is probably because it’s BBC not Pathe News.
