…From PART I…
These pictures are from a 1915 report on the future of the Tolbooth Steeple at Glasgow Cross..
One idea was to dismantle the steeple and move it across the road where the Mercat building is.
I think the idea was to completely open up the High Street to allow for more traffic.
They might have been onto something because these days, the heavy amount of traffic around the steeple is causing thousands of pounds worth of damage.
I think the steeple would have slotted into that spot just fine although,
I like it where it is.
