World War Z, Glasgow


In August 2011, George Square and a few surrounding streets were transformed into the streets of Philadelphia whilst filming for the new Brad Pitt film, World War Z took place. Apparently, for tax reasons they decided not to film it in Philadelphia PA. With its grid system and architecture Glasgow does a pretty good impersonation, although I'm sure people who live in Philidelphia might think otherwise.

The Royal Observer Core was established in 1925 to identify hostile aircraft. In the 1950's they were given the additional task of monitoring a nuclear attack on the UK for which some 1500 underground concrete bunkers were built in every corner of the UK. The ROC was stood down in 1991 but many of the monitoring post can still be spotted. For more info check out Sub Brit's web site

Glasgow Garden Festival 1988


The Glasgow Garden Festival was held in 1988 on an area of former dockland in the centre of the city. It lasted all summer and almost everything was removed at the end before the land was redeveloped for new uses. It was a bit like the Empire exhibitions of days gone by, it was a celebration of everything Scottish with a gardening theme and something that is still fondly remembered by anyone who visited it.
