Hi just been looking at a old tram photo of junction of St Georges Rd, with New city road and Great western road corners in picture , At new city road it was Wood and Selbys store and D M Hoey.
other corners Masseys at junction of maryhill road,
My question is what was the other big shop on great western road at Georges road , i remember this area in late 1950, early 60s before the motorway went through taking a lot of this bit away, tram picture was on National tram museum site at Crich . Anyone help or remember -its one of those niggling ones at the back of my mind

I hope you can help. http://www.tramway.co.uk/photos/73/7290.jpg

Thanks for listening Gee

Opposite Wood and selby on st georges road amd great western road in the mid to late sixties was a tv. electrical and record shop which was part of the clydesdale chain. My brother and I bought our first album/LP from there in Jan 1967 or 8. We were the last family to leave that end of Shamrock street in May 1968

I also like you bought stuff from that shop, a 3 inch Reel to Reel tape recorder in 1966 which I still have, thanks to my Uncle that kept it whilst I was away inthe Navy. It still works perfectly and would be interested to hear if anyone has similar stuff that still works from that shop.
It's a FERGUSON ....MADE IN BRITAIN.....beat that Japan.

Have a nice day everyone...Mac
