City Chanber and Lion

I mentioned Glasgow's City Chambers a few days ago as you could just see the top of the building on the horizon. This is a view taken from the top of a bus. I often take the red bus tour when I am in a city that I don't know well. Just in view at the foot of the cenotaph is the statue of a lion on the right.

I was once a physiotherapist for an American football team in Manchester called the Manchester Heroes. I also worked for the Blackpool Falcons but I have always considered myself a hero (that's a joke). One of the teams we played when I was with the Falcons was called the Glasgow Lions. I wonder how much of the name was due to this statue.

Happy snapping
