Parkhead Shop Revamps Back to Edwardian style

Been looking at some of the shops at Parkhead and some in Tollcross that have been renovated back to the original style when the tenements were bulit early 1900s I think its a fantastic idea,, The Post Office at Parkhead is leading the way as is this shop in Tollcross Road..

Cool!  

Be sure to visit the new Riverside transport museum (opening 21st June) Calamity, there's a recreated period street in it that I'm sure you'll enjoy.

The period street has more detail to it this time as there are interiors built into the shops now. It isn't dead-straight like the last one, its shaped like a very shallow "S", but you can see along it from corner to corner.

There will be a selection of transport related vehicles on its road and the interiors will have historical objects on display that relate to the type of shop it is.
