This is one of the more colourful exhibits in the Transport Museum, from Pakistan. Apparently there was a project in Glasgow a few years ago to decorate a bus in a similar style, but I don’t know if anything ever came of it?

August theme day – Night

As it’s the first of the month, that means it must be theme day again. This month the theme for the city daily photo blogs is Night. Actually I didn’t have a good night shot that I haven’t already shown, so I have cheated a little bit. This is another view from the Transport Museum, but as it depicts an old night scene I figured it worked for the theme day 🙂

This is one of the exhibits in the Transport Museum, a replica of a subway (underground train) station with the old fashioned station indicator.

Fire!

This is another picture from the Transport Museum. Who needs a siren when you have a shiny bell like that? 🙂

I’m not entirely convinced that wooden ladders would be the safest thing in the world when fire-fighting though!

Transport Museum

I visited Glasgow’s Transport Museum ages and ages ago, and never did get round to sharing any photos here. So I’ll post a few over the next few weeks (not all together, but depends on how many pictures of other things I can dig out to vary it a bit!). The Museum is in part of the Kelvin Hall, where they also hold a number of sporting events. It has rather outgrown its venue though (having been there since 1964), and they are in the process of building a purpose-built shiny new building to house the Transport Museum, on the banks of the Clyde. That’s due to open in 2011. In the meantime, the Transport Museum remains Glasgow’s second-most visited free attraction (after the Kelvingrove Museum which is over the road).

This picture shows a view looking down on some of Glasgow’s old trams. They don’t make them like they used to (just ask Edinburgh 😉 ).
