Tenement closes. Glasgow artist Frank McNab documents the communal entrances sans nostalgia or sentimentality. Gets it just so damn right! His 'Thoughts' and 'Projects' need a little more work however.

The Subway Challenge!
Can one man get off the Glasgow underground at one stop, race the train to the next and get back on the same train
? Mebbes aye, mebbes naw.

Best laid schemes?
Back in 1945 the Bruce Plan
[click on images for video footage] was a radical proposal to knock down, and then rebuild, the Victorian centre of the city of Glasgow. The city’s slums
* would be cleared; new towns
* would be established; Glasgow would rise again, triumphant, once again the second city of the Empire
*. In 1971
*, there were grand visions of the Glasgow of the future; the Glasgow of tomorrow would be a bright, shining new city, and the Clyde
* would once again be something to be proud of. A fascinating film archive of the Glasgow of the 20th century
