Going to see Admiral Fallow tomorrow night at the Tolbooth with my lovely boyfriend :) The first time I saw them was part of Reloaded Fest & their set was definitely my highlight of the weekend. Very excited for them to be back in Stirling - I love the Tolbooth! Lots of lovely memories there.
The Tolbooth Steeple now stands alone but this fine tower was once part of the old city chambers until 1814, the remains of the old Tolbooth buildings were demolished in 1921 and it has stood proud at Glasgow Cross since then. The Mercat Cross which stands nearby represents one removed from the areas in 1659, was paid for by Dr William Black and his wife inaugurated on 24 April 1930. I find it quite fitting to discover on International Women’s Day that it was designed by Britain’s first practising woman architect who established her own architecture firm in 1920.
