Specially for Wee Minx

If you only look up at the many fantastic building in Glasgow there are lost of facinating sculptures and engravings on many of the building. There is also lost more detail to the fabric of the buildings

Hopefully this thread will cover all the outstanding features Glasgow's architecture has to offer "If You Look Up".

Turnbull Street







Bothwell Street

When some tourists ask me what they can see when they go into town later, I nearly always tell them simply to look up. I was early for meeting someone this morning and walked up the middle of Buchanan st looking up at the detail of the buildings

Thanks to Wee Minx

I had been thinking about where to put these and some others I have taken recently. And it covers everything when you look up.

Clyde Port Authority building on the Broomielaw.











Some of the finest scultures on any building in Glasgow.

Excellent pics Alex

Sometimes it`s worth looking down too as on the pavement across from your first pic of the Bull lies this wee hidden gem.
