Eye Spy Glasgow would not be complete without a look at arguably the most eye-catching statue in the city.

Keen Monopoly players in the UK are familiar with The Angel, Islington - a pub in London's east end.

Sadly the Glasgow version of the board game doesn't include The Angel, Kinning Park - which is a bit of a shame.

Anyone who finds themself at the junction of Govan Road and Paisley Road West can't help but be hugely impressed at the figure gazing down.

The building at the centre of what used to be Kinning Park Cross is fondly remembered as a department store called Ogg Brothers Drapery Warehouse.

Nowadays it is home to La Fiorentina Italian restaurant and a stone's throw from the Grand Ole Opry, Glasgow's answer to Nashville.

The sculptor responsible for the gilt statue has been featured in this column before.

James Alexander Ewing was also responsible for the bust of Beethoven that faces Renfrew Street and the statue of a figure playing pan pipes facing Sauchiehall Street.

Both these figures were built for T A Ewing's Piano and Harmonium Emporium, owned by his brother Thomas.

But the statue at Paisley Road Toll is by far his best known work. It is officially called Commerce and Industry.

It was commissioned when the building was built in 1889 - eleven years before Ewing's death - and has become a Glasgow landmark.

It has even prompted the naming of a nearby pub, The Angel.

And it is one of these landmarks that you shouldn't pass without taking out your camera and getting a snap.
