Quarrelling is taboo

This is The Boy's Club building in Stirling."Quarrelling is taboo" is such a good motto.

Play the game

The building was remodelled in 1929 as a base for boys' associations like the Scouts and the Boys Brigade. It has these great inscriptions above the door and windows.

Keep smiling

Designed by Eric Bell, it's at 39 John Street, close to the Old Town Jail and just down the hill from the castle.

The Boy's Club building has long been a favourite of mine. I love the idea of writing on buildings as part of the building. Why haven't more architects pursued this idea?

Hi Teddy,

Yes, architecture is a serious business, isn't it, when it doesn't always need to be. I suppose that's why this building is so special.
