Secret Scotland

If it's secret, and in Scotland…

Baltic Street Thomas Stoddart (beds)

I’ve pictured this abandoned factory in the past, and after the command to “Send in the wreckers” to clear Dalmarnock for the dopey 2014 Commonwealth Games nonsense, remain surprised to see this (and the adjacent old building) were left standing, given the urgency with which adjoining land was cleared – then left barren, and still standing barren in 2018.

Funny how none of the people who made a fuss about the clearance back then have ever been heard of since.

Given how loudly they were shouting back then (and some demanding silly money), one might think they’d still be protesting today.

There is now a new school being built in the distance, and the ‘new’ old people’s home that was boarded up as soon as it was built now seems to be in use. Or is it just staffed? There was an episode of “Yes, Minister” where they had a terrific new hospital, with some 400 staff, and no problems – it also had no patients!

Back in Baltic Street, the Stoddart factory just seems to sit there, barely changing – if you don’t count the increasing amount of plant life it seems to be supporting these days.

Now that I’m getting better at correcting images for perspective, I though I’d have a quick run at this one, and correct the converging verticals which are hard to avoid with any reasonably tall building.
