If I remember correctly from the 1950s, a body was found hidden behind a wall in one of the rooms, would this have been the same?

I have to agree, Angel, I am surprised I haven't come across the thread previously. Our walls are filled with oil paintings of "flooers"! which wife picked up at the charity shops. She has gone to the dark side and made our living in something called "shabby chique" its like our hoose when I wiz a wean. One I do like because it was painted someone called Dempsey.I do remember one picture in one of the bedrooms as a child it was an Edwardian print of dark moon night on a loch probably Lochnagar and was probably was inherited from my grandparents. I would love to have it now.

Hi Ron , I like that term "Shabby Chique " it has a comfortable feel about it . thumbup.gif , for myself I use the word eclectic , . that's more upscale , biggrin.gif I really don"t have many wall pictures ,I had the tendency to buy at one time but after a couple of week's of them hanging on the wall , I got fed up looking at them , so off to the Sally Ann they went .

I don't recall anything in my young days that I think I would like to have , with the exception of my grannies Hats and her snuff boxes. they were so pretty . Ha Ha .Cheers.

Apart from family photos the only things we have hanging are a painting of a French/Belgium street scene that reminded me of the tenements on the Parli road when I first saw it.
We also have the The Daily Universal Register/ The London Times from September 1785 in a frame. That has been hung in the passageway out of my wifes line of sight. She's not really one for cluttering up the walls.

I do remember two pictures we had in our living room when I was growing. it was picture of my brother John and I standing on the front green on his first day fo school, he was five and I was two. That would have been in 1950 and it was colour tinted. Also was a type of plaster caste plate that was in bas relief of a lady from the Regency era standing by a cottage. The fact that it was almost 3 dimensional fascinated me.

What pictures (excluding those of family and friends) adorn the walls of your living room? For example, I have:

A 3' by 2' oil painting of Campbeltown, Argyll, above the fire place.
A painting of Lochnagar.
A painting of Crail.
A painting of Govan Rd. from the Cross looking towards the Lyceum.
A picture of George Square.
A picture of the "Hielen Man's Umbrella" from the Hope St. side.

mmm I have five of the Olympia and Bridgeton Cross in one big frame..one of Maureen Ohara signed and four of Doris Day hahah
