Pat's Guide to Glasgow West End

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm Ian Buckland ( ianbuckland.com )

I've been living in Partick (over from Australia) for the last 4.5 years.

I've been documenting Glasgow and Scotland whilst living here and specifically, I've documented the Partick section of Dumbarton Road and made a webpage ( glasgowstreet.org ) to display the streetscape as it was in Summer 2009.

I had been noticing how shops come and go and how the feel of Partick is changing slowly.

Capturing how things are right now is so important because things are always changing.

I'll put a photo up in the Visual arts section of this forum.

If anyone has stories about living on Dumbarton road or any amazing events relating to Dumbarton road - please get in touch !

cheers ! Ian. ( ian@ianbuckland.com )

Welcome to the Forum, Ian.

Good luck with your project. Partick has changed dramatically since I lived in Glasgow and seems to be undergoing a resurrgence, from what I pick up here on the Forum.

Looking forward to hearing those stories:)

I tried to use a photo URL from my Flickr page but it wouldn't accept it. ??

Any tips ? cheers.

Hi Pat (tried to PM you, it said you couldn't accept any more messages)

Sorry, it still didn't work. It says "that image extension is not allowed"

I tried -

<a href=" GlasgowStreetProjectw title="GlasgowStreetProjectw by Ian Buckland.com, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4004/4611266936_2fd920cbe8.jpg" width="500" height="154" alt="GlasgowStreetProjectw" /></a>
