A plug

Just a plug today for another Glasgow blog: Glasgow Bars and a Crane. It’s devoted to photographing the interiors of the city’s pubs.

Thanks to Scottish & Newcastle’s and Tennents’ determination to wipe out cask beer in the 1960s, Glasgow has been left with a lot of lovely Victorian pubs that don’t sell anything worth drinking. I thought I’d been to a lot of these, but the blog keeps surprising me with pubs I’ve walked past hundreds of times, but never been into. The author clearly has a deep appreciation of these places, even going as far as writing a piece on the ideal pub table.

With jakey pubs dropping like flies, especially in the city centre, this blog is providing a valuable service.
