Locals Enraged About Removal Of Historic Glasgow Sign
When the Strathclude Partnership for Transport (SPT), which administer public transit in Glasgow, Scotland, didn't anticipate citizen outrage when they removed a vintage sign that marked the entrance to the Cessnock subway station. The building the station entrance adjoins was devised by Alexander "Greek" Thomson, a famous, 19th-Century, Scottish architect, and the arch sign reflects its architectural character.
Opposition to the signs removed organized quickly, and a Twitter campaign, #SaveCessnockSign, began. Several public officials, including Scottish Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon and Scottish Green Party Leader Patrick Harvie, have spoken out against the sign's removal.
As a result, the SPT has halted plans to remove the site's other archway and sign.
