Welcome to my wee photoblog on Glasgow, where we feature the  joys and unjoys of walking and cycling through a fascinating, beautiful and often badly run city. For the blog's origin and an alphabetical list of posts  see the 'Introduction' post  -

The date  is 5 October 2010, and we are walking away from the high Court on the second day of the Tommy and Gail Sheridan trial - see

We're heading out into the Saltmarket

The mortuary - and old High Court down on left

Looking up to Glasgow Cross

The Saltmarket runs from the Clyde to Glasgow Cross. It gets its name from the salt merchants who sold salt to the fisher fowk of the Bridgegate. See
Now the merchants sell antique  DVDs
Sun is all on the west side of the street - Glasgow is very much a city of  light and dark

Looking down the Bridgegate - see 

The magnificent St Andrews in  the Square - and paid for by slave labour in the West Indies. see

'Who needs Viagra'. Not sure what kind of unlucky animal the fisherman is holding

Merry Christmas - it's 5 October

For Glasgow Cross see

You can see a sharp-angled face in the traffic light top left

Arch leading to Glasgow Green
The Old High Court; this pic not taken the same day (though it looked much the same), have lifted from this earlier post

For more pics of the Green see

And here are four extra pics from last year which I want to add -
