Last Known Photographs.

There’s a not very nice photo of John Lennon lying dead in a body bag on a stretcher available on the internet.
I saw it years ago and it’s always bothered me.

Elvis Presley:

Jim Morrison:

Freddie Mercury:

Jimi Hendrix:

Ray Charles:

Johnny Cash:

The Bellgrove Hotel, Glasgow.

I’ve always said to myself:
‘I’d better get a couple of photos of The Bellgrove before it falls down’.

Does anybody know anything about this place?

Who runs it?

There’s only a few mentions of it online.
HERE being the main place.

I was quite lucky with those photos.
You’ll see people sitting in their own piss outside of the Bellgrove looking like they have about 2 hours to live.

It’s been run down to hell since I always remember.

I’m 26 and I’m an Illustrator & musician from Bellshill which is just outside of Glasgow, Scotland.

I have a few other pages dotted about the place.

And here they are:

I will be using this blog to generally express myself and I’ll try my best to update it at least weekly.

Cheerio for now folks!
