The former Camphill United Presbyterian Chuch (now the Queen's Park Baptist Church) in Glasgow. Designed by William Leiper in the 1870s and completed in 1883, it also features sculptures by one of the Mossmans.

The Scots Baronial brilliance of Frank Stirrat's 1879 Dixon Halls on Cathcart Road in the Govanhill area of Glasgow. These public halls were a gift from William S. Dixon of the Govan Iron Works.

Good morning, Glasgow, and welcome to the Costa del Clyde! What a way to start a Saturday. I'm sure by the end of it, parks will be mobbed, taps will be aff and a haze of barbecue smoke will be drifting across the city as people squabble over the last packet of hamburgers in Tescos!

Another rather unique Glasgow tenement, this time on the corner of Langside Road and Queen's Drive on the city's Southside. Designed by W.M Whyte in a French Renaissance style, but with a statue of Liberty on the top, it was built in 1885.

You'll often hear it said there are five statues of Liberty in Glasgow. However, in reality, this is the only one as all the others are different allegorical female figures.

The beautiful and unique Battlefield Rest Tram Shelter on the Southside of Glasgow. Designed by Frank Burnet and Boston, it was opened in 1915. The original plan was to have similar shelters across the city's extensive tram network, but this was the only one which was ever built.

Statues by William Kellock Brown on the Govanhill and Crosshill Public Library, which was designed by J.R. Rhind and was opened in 1906.

I love this trend in Glasgow to having murals featuring the names of local areas. This one in Mount Florida seems to be new since the last time I visited, but there are also examples I've come across in Dennistoun, Battlefield and Govanhill.

Camphill House in Queen's Park on the Southside of Glasgow. Designed in a Classical style, possibly by David Hamilton, it was built around 1798 for the cotton manufacturer Robert Thomson. Thomson owned the Adelphi Cotton Works in Hutchesontown which is thought to have been the first factory in Glasgow to manufacture cotton goods. Originally built as a country house, it has now been engulfed by the expanding city.

I love this block of red sandstone tenements dating from 1903 on Langside Avenue in Glasgow.

The remains of the former Partick Central Station (later known as Kelvin Hall Station) under Benalder Street in Glasgow. It was built around 1896 for the Lanarkshire and Dumbartonshire Railway, and closed in 1965. The station buildings were demolished in 1968.

The former Hamilton and Manson Grain Mill on the corner of West Street and Wallace Street in the Tradeston area of Glasgow. Designed by W.F. McGibbon in a Flemish style, it was built in the 1890s

Today started off rather overcast here in Glasgow, but by the end, it had developed into a rather wonderful day!

One of the best things about living in Glasgow is turning a corner and finding yourself looking up at a roof like this!

The former Ogg Brothers Department Store at Paisley Road Toll was designed by Bruce and Hay, and was built in the 1880s. It's topped by the Spirit of Commerce and Industry, who is perhaps better known as the Kinning Park Angel, the Angel of the South, or simply Mrs. Ogg.

Commemorative stone on Mavisbank Gardens in Glasgow marking the commissioning and construction of the Cessnock Dock, later renamed the Prince's Dock, on the south bank of the Clyde. With 35 acres of water, it was the largest dock on the upper Clyde and it cost almost £1,000,000 build and equip. It closed in the 1970s and in the 1980s, it was filled in. In 1988, it formed the site for the Glasgow Garden Festival.

It's great to see Clarke and Bell's Art Nouveau style saloon bar on Dumbarton Road in Partick finally getting a decent make-over. Built for Philip MacSorley (who also owned MacSorley's on Jamaica Street) in 1900 on the site of an older pub called the Clan Vaults, it's previously been known as The Roost, Wall Street, The Exchequer, The Fitter and Firkin, The Clinic and Boho.

How can you fail to love a city which has decorations like this not on a castle, or a grand mansion or its town hall, but on a tenement building? This is part of W.M. Whyte's 1905 Scots Baronial tenement on Broomhill Drive in Glasgow.

I love these bronze portraits you get on Victorian gravestones as they provide a great snapshot of the fashions of the past, especially of male facial hair. This is the Reverend John Stark, minister in Duntocher, who died in the 1880s and is buried in the Old Kilpatrick Church Yard.

James Salmon Junior's rather beautiful 1900 Glasgow Style British Linen Bank building, one of the very few traditional red sandstone tenements left standing in the Gorbals area of Glasgow. Sometimes it seems the past is a luxury only the rich get to keep.

Saint Paul's Church on Dumbarton Road in the Whiteinch area of Glasgow. Designed in a Basilican-type style by Reginald Fairlie and Partners, it was built in the late 1950s and features stained glass by Gabriel Loire of Chartres.

An old Fire Point (FP) style fire hydrant cover on Old Rutherglen Road in the Gorbals area of Glasgow. It seems that this cover has somehow survived the wholesale destruction of the Gorbals in the 1960s, and the more recent round of redevelopments from the 1990s onwards.

The former Hutchesontown District Library on the southside of Glasgow. It was designed by J.R. Rhind in a French Renaissance style and was built in 1904. It's topped with a winged figure by William Kellock Brown.
