Glasgow

I lived on Byres Road in a boarding house. We had a Polish landlady who was a delight in her own way. One toilet for four apartments. In each apartment there were about three boarders added to the owner. She was the opposite to your grandmother. True blue capitalist. We got an evening meal. Amazing what she could do with a scrawny chicken. rice, carrots, parsnips and dumplings. My mother and I shared a room. Margaret's memory piece really gets the atmosphere of Glasgow. Sometimes I think it was hell but at the same time it was rich in art. We were forced, from primary school, to visit art galleries and museums. Amazing.
