The city looks great, but as many other cities there, the buildings look dirty and cities look quite poor. But I like the style.

fantastic pics, the architecture is amazing, though they really do need to replace the crummy postwar builds, and the current new builds with a higher quality more befitting of the rest.

SimsPlanet, your post was a bit of a mixed bag () but thanks none the less!

Mekky, thanks for your post, hope you are well

spliffy, agree 100% about the need to replace the plethora of post-war builds and, thankfully, so does the Planning Authority! There have been countless demolitions and replacements in the city over the past few years which has, unfortunately (some might say), resulted in few new talls being built as there has been a hell of a lot of new floor space created in dozens of <15storey new builds. But that's by-the-by, and cheers for your post

I've always thought that Glasgow was the one of the major powerhouses of Britain.

It was already a city with a well organised urbanscape by then. And very industrial too from what I've read.

yeah, thanks Porto Glasgow is where Adam Smith went to University, where James Watt was inspired to create the separate condenser, where Lord Kelvin made his breakthrough, where the worlds first organised police force was established, where the Trade Union Movement started, where skyscraper technology was first developed, where fast and effective bleach was invented, where the waterproof raincoat (mac) was invented, where the first Prime Minister of Canada was born, where Thomas Lister developed antisepsis, where the first game of international football was played, where ultrasound was developed, where Livingstone was educated and set out for Africa from...

I could go on, but i've never been one to boast

I had no idea that Glasgow was such a nice city, I always considered it as city of heavy industry.
