Glasgow’s Garnethill Neighbourhood, Revisited. Encore!

I knew this neighbourhood because the Glasgow School of Art in a major inhabitant.  But I really didn’t know this ‘hood until I took the Garnethill Women’s History Walk offered through the Glasgow Women’s Library last October.

Now I revisit it to see old friends, (buildings and views) and to see if I can spot something new.  Or a new perspective on its buildings, art, life.  Now that The Old Schoolhouse is open and renting rooms, if you are visiting from out of town you can immerse yourself in a great location.

Hence, not a lot of words (except that I recommend a visit!!) but a few more photos.  Cheers!
