The quote, “Cats and monkeys – monkeys and cats – all human life is there !”, always comes to mind when I’m in Argyle Street. In a ten minute walk from the bottom of Buchanan Street along to the Tron there was a fair bit to capture the attention on a quiet Tuesday afternoon. You should see it on a Saturday when it’s buzzing, or ” hoachin’ wi’ folk” as they say in Glasgow. Some folk were just sitting:
Some were definitely going somewhere:
Some were trading :
most probably oblivious to this blue plaque:
But then who needs a blue plaque or some old signs on a wall when there are these literary stoaters:
To reconsider Henry James’s “cats and monkeys” quotation mentioned at the beginning,
who needs cats and monkeys when you’ve got fancy rats and slider turtles??????
