From Gordon Street up to Renfrew Street, the road was strung with colourful lights. The job was made easier by the fact that many of the buildings still bore the old, cast-iron fixing which once carried the overhead power lines for the trams. Some still do - next time you're walking through the city, look up and you'll see the rusting hooks still embedded in the stonework.
As much as Christmas lovers and kids were delighted to see the lights, the local speugs were even happier. Look top left and you'll see a flock of Glasgow sparrows enjoying a free heat on one of the overhead wires.
Mind you, the late night light shows must have knocked out their bodyclocks. Imagine trying to catch some shuteye amongst all that.
