One of the architectural features I thought very interesting was the street entrance stairs to buildings, almost like flying buttresses over dry moats -- there would be additional steps leading down to the lower level to gain access to the below-footpath-level premises.
Buchanan St. is a busy pedestrian street.
There are many contrasting buildings on Buchanan St. (and elsewhere) and often the ground floor is a high street shop.
I was fascinated by this decorative building. The shop below just happened to be Laura Ashley.
Though the windows of this build seem plain in comparison to the building above, I liked the top story decoration and the semi circular window and its accompanying arch work.
I didn't look to see what denomination this church represented, just focused on the decoration.
This clock tower is also part of the church.
I think this man may have been on the other side of the sports shop entrance.
