Camphill Gate on Pollokshaws Road in Glasgow. Built in 1906, it was designed by John Nisbet. Unusually for a Glasgow tenement it has five storeys rather than four, and a roof terrace offering magnificent views across the city, and out into the countryside beyond.

Is this the best gushet building in Glasgow? A gushet building is one constructed on a narrow strip of land at a junction between two roads (in this case Paisley Road West and Govan Road). Designed in a Renaissance style by Bruce and Hay, it was built in the 1880s as the Ogg Brothers Drapery Warehouse and Department Store.

@ncdominie Yep, I photographed that, too and will be posting it soon! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ™‚

Sunset at Glasgow's Riverside Museum. Designed by Zaha Hadid, it was first opened in 2011. The reflections in the window shows the buildings of the Clyde Waterfront further up the river.

@Hufnagel Good questions. The main sunset is behind the building, but as it goes down, the light is sometimes reflected off the river and can light up the clouds on the eastern horizon to give a subtle glow to it. The reflective glass in the window then seems to emphasise these colours. Hope that makes some sense! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ™‚

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 pinnicle of Cooperative House on Morrison Street in Glasgow. Designed by Bruce and Hay and built in the 1890s for the Scottish Cooperative Wholesale Society, its topped by the iconic golden figure of Light and Life.

Light and Life was created by James Ewing and was cast in concrete. When the building was converted into flats in the mid-1990s, the figure crumbled as it was being removed. In 2015, local building engineer Bill Ritchie realised that as the building was covered in scaffolding, there was a opportunity to replace the statue. Working with the artist Kenny MacKay, a replica of the original statue was hastily created and installed in the brief window before the scaffolding came down again.

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.

@Clutha it's well worth a visit, especially as this probably isn't even the best side of the building! The facade along the neighbouring Queen's Drive is arguably more impressive (although also more difficult to photograph), and is decorated with some great sculptures.

@scotdowser it's quite well hidden by trees and you have to approach the building at just the right angle to see it, but once you spot it, you wonder how you ever missed it! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ™‚

@thisismyglasgow@mastodon.scot avatar

@bodhipaksa it does look a bit weird from this angle, but less so when seen from the front on Queen's Drive. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ™‚

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.
