My favourite part of the Kelvin Hall incarnation of the museum was the 1930s street, with reputed ghost and all! The lighting, underground station, cinema all gave a convincing back in time feel. The only flaw was that you couldn't enter the shops, which they got round by setting the street in early evening just after closing time. I believe the new museum has an improved and enlarged streetscape which I'm looking forward to seeing. Better I hope than the Museum of London's 'street' which could've been marvelllous but suffered from being too indoors with too many cutaway shopfronts giving a rather dolls house feel to it. The Glasgow one on the other hand felt like a real street. So fingers crossed it lives up to expectations.

So if anyone from Glasgow Life is reading this....give me a shout. I'd be more than happy to keep shop!
