Philadelphia street scene in Glasgow
Philadelphia street scene in Glasgow
16th at Arch, better known as North Hanover Street at George Square. Renamed during filming of a movie starring Brad Pitt.

I was told by a security staf member that the "Statue of Liberty" on the City Chambers was a prop, but a check of previous geograph photos from several years ago shows this not to be the case.
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.
