If it's secret, and in Scotland…

Old painted wall advert in Blytheswood Street

It always pays to look up, and around, as you might spot something interesting.

In this case it’s the remains of an old painted advert for a business in Bath Street, high on a wall in Blytheswood Street, just down from Sauchiehall Street.

Some is still quite readable, while parts have faded or weathered to the extent that a good guess is needed.

Not sure if I mentioned the case of a similar sort of advert I spotted in the news a while ago.

Sadly, although it was an old painted wall advert, the product shown is still current.

So, there was a problem when a proposal was made to save/restore it.

The locals wanted a cut of the advertising revenue if they were going to support, or not object to, the project.

I think the outcome is still pending.

I was left wondering if there was ANY revenue, given the age of ad I thought it would have been derelict/abandoned years ago.
