So …the Battle of Waterloo 1815-2015. A big Bicentenary in Scotland? After all…those Red Squares…the Black Watch, the Gordon Highlanders, the Scots Greys and a lot of other Scottish regiments took part in the Duke of Wellington’s most famous victory over the French.
I bought the above postcard, thinking that it was just a one-off, literally a snap-shot of Scottish humour. The statue is outside Glasgow’s Modern Art Gallery and the pic below is how it looked on Thursday, Friday and Saturday of last week.
In Buchanan Street on Saturday, there were a lot of street performers. The pic below is one of them.
So what is it with the Duke of Wellington and the Traffic Cone? Well….it is a tradition. Every so often the traffic cone is removed by the Council. But every time it is removed, it is replaced. So the Duke of Wellington and his Traffic Cone are now part of the fabric of the City of Glasgow. I really love this.
