Thanks for that. You have solved a mystery for me as I have often wondered what happenned to the "Shell" from the old St Enoch's Station. There is still a Shell in Glasgow Central. It is situated just to the right as you leave the station at the Gordon Street exit.

Well bein a posh burd fae the east end ah like ma mussels in white wine or garlic.
Bu if ahm bein honest there's nothin like the mussels in vineger fae the barras. Ah still pop doon the odd Sunday for a wee cup. " ye cannae wak thum"
mrssnuffy
There used to be a really wee shop outside the Barras that had nothing but mussels in the window and I had to have a bag every time I went there. When you walked along the street all you could hear were mussel shells cracking under your feet. I still love mussels in any shape or form, YUM!!!

stuarty, this is the first time I've been in this great thread of yours. I too didn't know where the shell from St Enoch's disappeared to. Is it still in the same place in the Barra's, three years on from your photo do you know?
