One of the ballons from that day landed in front of my brothers flat. He was stoned and thought it was a spaceship coming to get him.

Oh and great pics man. I love the fact sites like UG get people rummaging through their old photos that they maybe thought no one would be interested in.

I have to say I was pleasantly surprised .. when I read the title of the thread I fully expected photos of the Scottish Tory Party Conference.  

Great pics Mr U .. nice.

I remember having a great day out,the weather,as can be seen, was not typical Glasgow.The  guys who fly these things were very approachable,especially when you were taking pictures of their balloon.

Ps.Doorstop,I'm apolitical so I don't know what you mean.

Looks like none of the pictures are there any more.  Just the photobucket logo saying they are moved or deleted.  Was this the balloon festival in 1990 where the had a 235 ft high parrot balloon ?

mr.underwood - a thread in the Photography section is not much use without photographs...

There you go, chaps. It was a Saturday evening in August 1990. The balloons went right over my house. The cross in the second one belongs to Holy Cross in Dixon Ave.
