Scott Street, Glasgow
Scott Street, Glasgow
A telephoto lens shot from Pitt Street makes Scott Street appear almost vertical. With refurbishment work in progress on Sauchiehall Street and the aftermath of the Glasgow School of Art fire, the whole area is a bit of a mess. The huge crane was idle in this Sunday afternoon scene. See NS5865 : Glasgow School of Art after the second fire for a view of Scott Street immediately after the fire.
Glasgow School of Art after the second fire
The historic Charles Rennie Mackintosh designed building was almost completely destroyed by fire in May 2014. Four years later, on 16th June 2018, as the 35M restoration work was nearing completion, fire struck again, causing even more damage than the 2014 event.

At the time of writing in June 2018, the cause of the second fire is unknown and expert opinion is divided on whether the main structure of the building can be saved or whether it will need to be demolished.

The school will be rebuilt, probably at a cost of over 100M.
