• Norfolk St, north side west of the Cross.  

August 1973
  • Common Cow-wheat [Melampyrum pratensis] 

Eastern slopes of Beinn Tulaichean,  10/7/83

~ This was an astonishing sight, like finding a red daffodil, for this Cow-wheat is invariably a cool yellow. Almost invariably, that is, and few flower books admit the existence of a red variety. Apart from this plant's neighbours, I've never seen another example. Its close relations M. arvense and  M. cristatum have similar colouring, but are only found much further south.
  • The guide and his 2 young lady clients set off down. I had followed them pretty shamelessly on the way up (as had a roped pair of, I think, Croats), but he was very good about it - we shook hands at the top, and he just laughed when I said, 'Thanks for guiding me'.

  • Sunset from Canisp.

  • The Finnieston Ferry, with the freighter Victore at Mavisbank Quay.

Glasgow, 16/03/77

~ The grandiose Co-op warehouse on the left is still there (now loft apartments), and a bit of the Kingston Bridge is visible, but everything else is changed utterly.
  • Sgurr Thuilm and the Streaps, from Rois-bheinn.

These photos are just here to occupy the space and give a flavour of the contents, but 'browse' will take you to some folders, and  on to the galleries.

If it's my 1970s Glasgow stuff you're looking for, you'll find all the various galleries in the 'history' folder. Or you can search for a particular street.

In response to requests I've reinstated the BUY button. Orders will be fulfilled by Loxley Colour of Cumbernauld, whose work is of a very high standard.

The copyright mark which I have reluctantly put on the historical photos (in belated response to ongoing piracy) will not appear on prints.

Good luck with finding what you want to see, and thanks for visiting.
