Glasgow, Scotland, UK

Welcome to the Celtic fringe of the British Isles. In Glasgow, as in Dublin, lamp poles are shaped like shepherd's crooks, symbols of each city's patron saint. Let St. Mungo's staff shed some light on the founding of Glasgow: "Here is the bird that never flew. Here is the tree that never grew. Here is the bell that never rang. Here is the fish that never swam." [2004]
