Ashfield that was a pretty "Standard" pun. I expected better from you.

Sorry Jim, I thought I had typed your name but I must have had a pair of my old pals compositors specs on cool.gif

As for the poor pun, I'll have you know I hold the Record, no mean feat in these hard Times eyebrow.gif

I must say that here in Yorkshire I Mirror your Record and if we keep this up and wait till Sunday to Post we'll get threatening e Mail's on the bush Telegraph about it from the Guardian of Standard's on the board. He might even put a Private Eye on our tail. Still, we must try to remain Independent in our views and just keep hoping for the Sun to shine on our efforts no matter what the reaction of a Scotsman to sunny weather.

Regards

I worked at the Evening Citizen in the early 1970's. I had a Saturday job there and would wait for the bales to slide down the chute when I would load them into a wee van then deliver the papers to newsagents on a specific 'run'. I recall there was a delay around the new year of 1971. The bales were late, very late coming down the chutes. When they finally did start appearing they stated in the red 'Stop Press' section in the margin that there were reports of fatalities at Ibrox stadium.

I've fond memories of the Citizen newspaper, as my dad was 1 of the many van drivers delivering the paper,in the summer holidays he used to send his van boy "up the road" and my 2 brothers and I used to take over the van boy duties,on an occasion my sister would come along too, 4 kids in the front of this old 2 seater Commer van with the engine placed between the 2 seats were we would sit, no seat belts in those days, delivering to the "big" houses in East Kilbride with long driveways, if the house had a dug you were in trouble as the bloody thing would chase you down the driveway till you reached the van snapping at your arse as you ran, my dad would be pissing himself laughing as he slowly drove away with you trying to make up ground.

Me and my pal used to deliver the evening papers to the flats in Germiston in the 70s we also delivered the Sunday morning papers, the driver would leave them in a close and we would sort them out, couldn't wait to get home on a Sunday morning as the whole of the flats smelt of fry ups, quite funny on a Friday when we went to collect the money, some people would not answer their door, so we would leave paper hanging out of letter box and stand out of their spy hole view, or slam the door on their landing so they would think we had gone, within seconds you would see the paper being pulled though their letter box, what I remember about the citizen was a competition with the photo of a football player and his eyes covered,

With regard to the old Evening Citizen offices in St Vincent Place, a close look at the building frontage shows "Citizen Office" carved into the stonework above the entrance.
