to motors. On walking around the exhibits it was, 'oh, I remember that.......and that......and that'. Feeling old? what me? no way.... however this was the first car we owned, a Ford Pop. Second hand, 25 pounds to you sir.
Having been short changed on our Macintosh at the H of A L, Geoff brought us to his old place of employment, Glasgow Univerity.
we were here to see this, a rebuild of Macintosh's house, the powers that be having demolished the original. This is not the way in by the way. Unfortunately, no photos allowed inside, but I can vouch for it being much more pleasing to view inside than out.
If you are wondering what all this Macintosh thing is about, here is an example of his 'style' - The Willow Tea Rooms on the third floor of Watts Brothers. Considering he was active in the late Victorian period, this 'look' was, to say the least, revolutionary. I wonder if a miniature make is in order?
