When was 'then' George?
Last time I stayed at the hotel was in Nov. '66 - remember it well - I was bringing my Mum back to Canada after my Dad's funeral.
Our room did not have 'private facilities' and the toilet was down the hall - Mum went off and, for the longest time, didn't come back - I got worried - found her, much confused, in the entrance hall to the toilets - apparently when you went in the lights went on, opening a toilet door also brought light, closing it switched it off - she reasoned that getting out would also bring darkness and decided to stay put, convinced that her dutiful daughter would eventually come to her rescue. She was right, the moment the door was opened, the lights went out. Think they had 15w bulbs in the hallways! Can you imagine such a system in this day and age? It really was quite scarey! Glasgow's COME A LONG WAY!
