The list of Glasgow places I’d like to see, which has been, thanks to weather and lack of spare time, slowly swelling for a few months, contains some pretty obvious places like the Riverside Museum, but also some not too typical ones. I went to see three of the latter kind today.
Kelvingrove Gardens Bandstand
I’d already walked the Kelvin Way several times, but never noticed the bandstand, until I read about it in this article. It really could do with some repairment work, although my not having noticed it even in such state is still a shame.
Glasgow Gaelic School
Thanks to Google Earth Street View I knew I should not expect anything special from the architecture of the Glasgow Gaelic School, but what kind of a learner would I be if I couldn’t say I’d seen it?
Graffiti near Kelvinbridge
Eventually I went to something about which I’d learned even before I knew about the school, let alone the bandstand. It was during our very first weeks in Glasgow that Hedgehog showed me some photos he took near the Kelvinbridge. It took some time before I went to see these graffiti with my own eyes, but finally it happened – and it was worth it.
