Re: Wee Ginger Glaswegian Painted by Van Gogh

Nice set, particularly the Transport Museum.

I love Kelvingrove, by a mile the best public gallery/museum I've been in. Maybe not the finest exhibits, but a major asset for the city. It's free, well presented and most importantly heaving with families - at least it was on the weekend I last visited. It's how these places should be -vibrant and used. I'm surprised they would let you use flash on their rather valuable pictures mind.

Re the transport museum - I was wanting to have a look at this when I was last in Glasgow, but it wasn't opened yet. Somebody said the old museum had the corporations first Atlantean bus, no LA1, on display. I used to work on it in the late 60's. Probably took 6d off Billy Connelly!
