Aberdeen Review.

Well today we drove up to Aberdeen, hopefully for the last time. Im pretty sick of that road. The contract finished about a month ago, but we had the Strachan window as a extra job so we went up today to fit that back in.
The windows have been boarded up entirely since the early 90’s, the whole building is being renovated and there is still a further 2 stages to go on that so I don’t think they will be seen by the public for maybe a year or two.
I had earlier posts on the reconstruction of this window and here is the finished article.

Also as that job is finished up now here is a wee slide show of various photos I took since January in no order really. We cut up around 4000 rectangles, rebuilt 2 vandalised windows, restored a large 3 lancet window, didn’t fall off anything & nothing fell on us. Mission success!

Maybe I could include an actual review of the Granite City…
well if truth be told we only had to drive up on the rain maybe twice. It rained will we were working only a handful of times, I can only remember 2 bad days when we were outside. Considering this was January points go to Aberdeen. The place is hoaching with drug addicts. I wouldn’t fancy being out and about past midnight, its bam pot central.
And my favourite restaurants were the Moonfish Cafe http://www.moonfishcafe.co.uk/ and Cafe 52 http://www.cafe52.net/
My favourite bar was the Blue Lamp, also The Old Kings Highway & The Prince Of Wales.
Aberdeen, farewell.

    1. Hi, Pete – I have a request: can I use one of your lovely pix as my gravatar? The one I really like is of the open door looking down onto some steps. I’d acknowledge it on my ‘about’ page with a link to your blog. I don’t mind at all if you’d rather I didn’t. No offence taken! Let me know. Thanks. BH.

  1. Thanks! That’s really kind of you. I think I can just take it, but will let you know if I have a problem. Cheers!

    Don’t stop blogging! I love seeing the pictures of the work you do.
