The Old College Bar. High Street, Glasgow.

Hi folks,
This is a photo of the inside of The Old College Bar on High Street, Glasgow:



I like it here.
It’s REALLY dark all of the time and I’ve spent many a midnight sat right there in the middle of that bar.
It’s basically a seedy juke-joint.

Last year John from the bar did me a huge favour.
But that’s none of your buisness.

I asked him if there was anything I could do for him and he said:
“Aye. Come in here to this bar one time when nobody’s around with your camera and take pictures of the entire bar for me”.
When I asked him why he said:
“Because. I want to build a fecking replica of this bar in my house!”

I just thought to myself:
“Fair enough”.

So here they are:











NOTE: All of those photos were taken in the middle of the Afternoon and the very next day, the whole pub was redecorated and painted white.

Oh aye, I've heard about that.
I remember a barmaid years ago telling me about a mist which appeared in the basement and royally freaked her right out.

I don't really believe in any of that but I'll find out what i can and post it up here one day.

Cheers Calamity!

The pub was taken over fairly recently and a lot of pictures and stuff above the gantry were given away to the pub regulars.

Least  I think that's what happened.

Bravo young sir    Keeps everything moving along swimmingly and makes loads more sense to look and see the photo in its entirety without scrolling.

Not the first to get it wrong and certainly wont be the last but certainly one of the quickest to put it right
