Notes on the Geography of The United Kingdom: Glasgow Core: Photo 24

world pictures The United Kingdom: Glasgow Core

The corner we've been looking at is called Charing Cross, perhaps merely to tickle the Scots sense of humor. The corner was an important junction for a long time, however, because people with money tended to buy property a mile or more west of here, while the city center is a ten-minute walk straight off to the right on Sauchiehall Street. Hence the Charing Cross Mansions. It looks down and out, but the location must still be an important one. For proof, just look at who's renting space on the ground floor under the clock.
