Day Tour of Glasgow Scotland

Sunday, May 24, 2009

Here are some images taken during today's day tour of Glasgow.

Squinty Bridge over River Clyde

Science Centre Tower. This is one of the tallest buildings in Scotland. It is possible for visitors to travel up to the top of the tower which affords superb views when visibility is right.
Armadillo Conference Centre. The design is redolent of the Sydney Opera House.

Gallery of Modern Art. This is built on site of, and incorporates some features from, an 18th century Tobacco Lord's mansion. ( Tobacco Lords were extremely wealthy business people who derived their income from tobacco trading with what is now Southern States of U.S.A.)
The Nelson Monument at Glasgow Green

Templeton carpet Factory, Glasgow Green. This was modelled on the Doge's Palace in Venice, Italy.

This collection of images is by no means exhaustive of sites and places to visit in Glasgow and environs.
