I'm a picture researcher at Glasgow's Museum of Transport. I am currently working on the Riverside Project (for the new museum that will be built at the point where the Clyde and the Kelvin meet). The project requires many photographs and memories. I am looking for photographs of 1950's dance halls and dancers, 1960's furniture stores, dock photographs etc. All with a Glasgow connection. If you have any photographs that you feel may be of interest to the museum please get in touch! We hope to produce displays that reflect not only the transport but the people who worked on its contruction, who worked on the transport and who travelled on it. I can be contacted at:

I look forward to hearing from you!

I would like to add my best wishes too Chekovita. Transport Museum is one of my favourite places in Glasgow along with Kelvingrove Art Gallery and People's Palace.

Jay's was one name I can remember but if I come across any others I will post them

hi there,
If you were sucessful in getting your pictures of your furniture store then I wonderign if it would be possible to ask where you got them from as I am putting together a this is your life type of book for my mother in law's 50th birthday. It has been reletivly easy to put it together but no matter how hard I try I cannot seem to find any pictures of candren road in paisley near ferguslie park between 1955 and 1965. I would mean so very much to her if we could get some pictures of her childhood neighbourhood together as the ones she did have we desrtoyed in a house fire 10 years ago. Her name is maria armstrong. If anybody knows of the armstrong family that lived on candren road then please contact me at
Many Thanks
KellieMarie xx
