Glasgow Photo: a fantastic Glasgow Photograph Featuring Arriving In Glasgow Late in the Evening

Photograph Taken On Tuesday, June 25, 2019


My travels around the UK by car for three weeks with my son. June/July 2019 Scotland. Day Sixteen..Over night the rain came down and for most of our trip down to Glasgow we had heavy rain. Glasgow is a port city on the River Clyde in Scotland's western Lowlands. It's famed for its Victorian and art nouveau architecture, a rich legacy of the city's 18th–20th-century prosperity due to trade and shipbuilding. Today it's a national cultural hub, home to institutions including the Scottish Opera, Scottish Ballet and National Theatre of Scotland, as well as acclaimed museums and a thriving music scene. Glasgow is the most populous city in Scotland, and the third most populous city in the United Kingdom, as of the 2017 estimated city population of 621,020. Inhabitants of the city are referred to as "Glaswegians" or, informally, as "Weegies". Glasgow is also known for the Glasgow patter, a distinct dialect of the Scots language that is noted for being difficult to understand by those from outside the city. The origin of the name 'Glasgow' is disputed. The name is most likely Cumbric, with a first element being glas, meaning "grey-green, grey-blue", and the second giving a meaning of "green-hollow" or "(dear) green place". The settlement probably had an earlier Cumbric name, Cathures; the modern name appears for the first time in the Gaelic period (1116), as Glasgu. It is also recorded that the King of Strathclyde, Rhydderch Hael, welcomed Saint Kentigern (also known as Saint Mungo), and procured his consecration as bishop about 540. For some thirteen years Kentigern laboured in the region, building his church at the Molendinar Burn where Glasgow Cathedral now stands, and making many converts. A large community developed around him and became known as Glasgu (often glossed as "the dear Green" or "dear green place"). For More Info:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GlasgowView image on Flickr
