Secret Scotland

If it's secret, and in Scotland…

Little old sign in Baillieston

I seem to have mentioned the ‘tidy effect’ once or twice in recent posts.

This refers to some areas finding that anything old is automatically unwanted, and considered to bring down the tone of the area, so has to be removed to clear the place up, tidy it, and make it look ‘better’, and probably show that the local councillor is ‘on the job’, so deserves a vote.

I noticed a little sign on a long surviving shop in Baillieston, and I wondered if anyone ever even noticed it.

I spotted it because I try to remember to ‘look up’ (sometimes), just in case there’s something interesting to see off the usual eye-line, or towards the upper storeys or roofs of building I’m passing.

I won’t give the exact location, so locals who may have missed this over the years can play at finding it – thought it should probably be fairly obvious for anyone that knows the place.
