Firhill Art

Recommended Posts

A friend just sent me this, which I've never seen before. Anybody know anything about it?

I like it, but there are a couple of anomalies, if (as I believe ) it's meant to show the early to mid-sixties.

But hey, it's art, and the artist can do what he likes. I still like it!

Anybody else spot those (to me) anomalies, or maybe others?

Maybe other folk will post examples of  "Firhill art." Our supporters are supposedly, after all, mostly student or retired arts and crafts types!

Just spotted another one: the Dundee/Killie/Morton supporter has decided to go home, and not being familiar with the city, thinks the Hillman Imp is something they call a "taxi."

Did the 105 trolleybus  (Queens Cross to Clarkson)  not go from Northpark St out onto Maryhill Road? Don't know, but don't believe that any trolleybus went up Firhill Road.

Whoops! I'm  wrong.  Just checked. The return journey from Clarkson DID come up Firhill  Road!!

Well done! I also didn't think there were trolley buses on Firhill Road, but you've solved that one. 

Artist 1, me nil.

There's (at least) one that I'm sure about, and no need to go back to the trolley bus era to spot it.

Don't think it's an Imp. Minx/Morris Oxford?

And a long way from home. It was first registered in Brighton.

With the scarfs, did we ever play Brighton in the mid 60's ?

 

Going to be pedantic and say a Morris Oxford rather than an Austin Cambridge. Although nearly the same, the Austin had the name badge on the boot, above the number plate, while the Morris had it to the right, as in the painting.
