Sunday Adventure in Glasgow
This was Glasgow Open Doors weekend. Because I was teaching yesterday, we had a Sunday Adventure today, visiting the Britannia Panopticon Music Hall, a decaying, once-splendid theatre, where Stan Laurel, of Laurel and Hardy, had his debut. After that, we went to the Police Museum, which is run by retired policemen, who love to talk your ear off. Both places are run by volunteers who have found a little piece of reality to love and cherish. I suspect that there is a deep truth in this someplace.
