I had a wander down Byres Road and along University Avenue on Christmas morning - when it was still very quiet. The photograph above is of Dowanside Road.

Hi y'all, Thanks for the nice comments. Clearly I need to take more photographs of West End puddles - as these particular puddles are proving popular. :-)

Love the puddles,and the new blue front page heading. I live in California, and the main thing I miss about Glasgow is the thought of the streets at this time of year, the dark coming down and the lights coming on. Add to that the twittering of the starlings on Sauchiehall Sreet (are they still there?), and the nostalgia trip is complete.

I remember that puddle from 50 years ago and many like it. My grandmother lives in Byres Road, just down from University Cafe and we hiked up and down the there every Saturday for years. What happened to all the butchers' shops? june

Well, Jim, I am so glad to see that some things never change. I remember that puddle (top pic) in Byres Road from more than 4 years ago! Barry.
