The Glasgow city chambers must be one of the most impressive Victorian buildings there is. It is also very beautiful inside and can be visited. it is well worth going to see the inside of this building

If you are to be Lord Provost today you must be a paid up member of the Labour Party and a Knight....

Buchanan Street Railway Station[attachment=29724:Buchanan...tion1963.jpg]
Buchanan Street railway station was one of the most grotesque looking stations in the UK. the station was built as a temporary station in 1849 but would remain unchanged until 1932 when it was rebuilt more or less the same as the original, wooden huts on top of steel girders. The only advancement from the original was the canopies that where fitted over the platforms, these being taken from the then closed station Ardrossan North station. Apart from the ugliness of the building I can remember watching trains coming and going to the station in the mid 1960's

Glasgow Royal Infirmary
[attachment=29725:Royal.jpg]
The royal is another piece of fine Victorian architecture that can be seen in Glasgow. Pity about the mess in front though
