The banners are mock-ups, advertising a forthcoming event by the Philadelphia Philanthropic Foundation. Note also the yellow framed traffic lights.

World War Z on location
Glasgow played host to a cast and crew of about 1,200 people (including Brad Pitt), who were involved in shooting some key scenes for the post-apocalyptic film "World War Z" between 15th and 30th August 2011.

Parts of the city centre around George Square were transformed to resemble downtown Philadelphia, where some of the movie is set. Green street signs and yellow traffic lights were some of the more obvious changes to the casual observer.

George Square and several surrounding streets were closed to road traffic during the filming.

Filming of the Paramount Pictures movie, which is based on the Max Brooks novel World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War, also took place in Valletta in Malta and in Cornwall.
