ABC Wednesday: U is for
University Union

I was Undecided what to post here this week and Ummed and ahhed for ages before Unearthing this photograph from 1966 of St John's Street, Glasgow. It shows the Student's Union at the University of Strathclyde.

Compare it if you will with Thomas Nugent's photograph taken in 2011 and found on Geograph.

  4. I like your photo better, but then it is looks like a pedestrian precinct now, so that part is better.

  5. Gosh, that is an ugly building, bet the students liven it up a bit though!!
