      Thanks all

      purplewon: An old school sounds better to me, its listed anyways so the facade will be retained at least.

      Viche: I hear ya I'll be glad of a new warm building but this place has character.

      Fantastic. Is that Holmlea School? If not it's very similar... I went there in the mid-late 60s, and showed up for the closing down do in 2005. Our teacher used to make us stand on the windowsills if we were naughty. Doesn't look so high up now.

      No, I'm not to sure what the name of the school is, its up at the west end(dowanhill)

      Although I think most schools in glasgow of this age are very similar in design.

      I'm very glad they'll retain the facade. I'm jsut sorry their taking the school and its ghosts out.

      If I'm not mistaken that's Notre Dame's old annexe. I had gym in that room and graphic communication across the hall!

      YOu have some magic light in this picture. The kind that is hard to find and when you do find it even harder to capture. Nicely done.

      I'm sad to hear that, amazingly. Who thought I'd be sad about them bulldozing my school? :-D
