[Really hoping I haven’t shown this photo on the blog already!] Lilybank Gardens is a row of tenements owned by Glasgow University and housing various departments – including mine (though my office, on the rare occasions now I’m back at uni, is not here but up the hill a bit).

    I really get confused by the British use of the word ‘tenements.’ I’d just gotten used to it referring to apartments, but now it sounds like these are offices?

    Hilda: originally, those buildings were flats (apartments) but when the University bought the whole terrace, it converted knocked down some internal walls and turned them into offices.

    hehehe….like Hilda, I get confusionated by British wording as well! Generally, tenements in the US of A are npt exactly where onw would be wantin’ to live!!! Let’s see, they are quite lovely, and I think here that type of building would be referred to as row houses. I think, anyway!!!!
