Glasgow

Glasgow; as it was, as it is, and as it might be

Glasgow; as it was, as it is, and as it might be

This is Glasgow to me; an amalgamation of its past, present and future. An industrious, ambitious city nestled into a valley, staged against a backdrop of the Campsie Fells, with Edinburgh a stone’s throw away on the horizon. The impenetrable M8 takes on the role of a city wall, enclosing the Victorian grid to the north of the Clyde.
