How about some photos of burger vans and ice cream vans? They are more ephemeral than shops but they are an important part of the city feeding us burgers by day and ginger by night.

It's okay GK, there are no OT on here so I won't be telling you to burger off.

You should add a drum kit emoticon for times like this

Anyway, back to the original post, how about photos of the tiny newsagents around the city. The sort of places that just have a hole in the wall as a counter. They've always held a certain facination for me.

EDIT: I was too late with the drum suggestion

I cannot for the life of me think if there are any hole in the wall shops left. Get photographing, I'm intrigued.

Only one I can think of is in the St Enoch's Centre although some railway stations have them.

Aye the coffee bars made out of old police phone boxes in Glasgow thread would be pretty short though

They have just opened a Coffee Bar in Hyndland Station. Converted the space under the stairs where they previously kept the salt.

I'm thinking of doing a project on old-style cafes in Glasgow and the surrounding area.

I don't mean newly-opened or retro style ones, but those that have been there for generations and still retain their old decor. The Val d' Oro at Glasgow Cross and Boni's in Clarkston spring to mind, but if anyone can think of any others that I could go and take some pics of it would be most appreciated.
