Shop sign in Glasgow
There are a lot of rug dealers in Glasgow!
Thanks again Jamie and Stu
Yes the photo below was dated 1973. This one is from the mid sixties.
Just to explain for the geographically challenged. Boots corner was occupied by Boots the Chemist and was at the junction of Argyle St and Union St Glasgow. Beyond that boundary Union St becomes Jamaica St.
Because of its central location and proximity to Glasgow Central station, St Enoch’s underground and several bus routes, it was the rendezvous point for many a couple back in the day.
It wasn’t unusual to pass the spot and see maybe half a dozen folk pacing around looking at their watches.
It was also a famous spot for ‘dizzies’ ie when the other party to the said rendezvous didn’t turn up.
My traumatic experience of desolation on that spot was from a girl at college, 1976 it was. I got a pathetic excuse from her the next day and have never forgotten or indeed forgiven the experience and attendant trauma.
It couldn’t have been anything about me I’m sure. After all at the time I had a bright yellow sweatshirt, high waisted baggy denims and Hai Karate after shave………..a puzzle right enough.
Forget Henry McLeish the dishonest politician and his think tank.
Never mind Neil Doncaster the wee jumped up car salesman/spiv.
It has taken raddled old cynical hack James Traynor and the Daily Record to come up with by far the most sensible proposals for reconstruction of Scottish football yet.
Most really good ideas are really simple and this one is simply three leagues of fourteen with a 7/7 split after 26 games.
I’d go for this unless anyone has a better idea.
