This morning, I visited an old part of Glasgow, namely Glasgow Green, the oldest public place in Britain dating from 1450.

The short video below commences with the Templeton Carpet Factory which dates from the late 19th century with a design modelled on the Doge’s Palace in Venice. This building is now used as business centre.

Next site of interest is the Doulton Fountain which originally appeared in the 1888 International Exhibition in Kelvingrove, Glasgow. The fountain incorporates carvings and statues reflecting the diversity of Britain’s then world empire.

The camera next focuses on the Peoples Palace and Winter Gardens, a centre dedicated to the people and culture of Glasgow.

These are magnificent, photogenic and generally docile, beasts which tend to thrive on the poor pasture found on the hills and mountains.

This afternoon I ventured out in heavy rain to obtain some seasonal video shots of the waterfall at Rouken Glen, a public park, Giffnock, south of Glasgow. The shots were taken in heavy rain at about 3.00pm.
