There arent many left in Glasgow but the remaining street sellers of the Evening Times have been told
that they will no longer required after July. Apparently they have been informed that they are not what the modern Glasgow wants !! Sad news for anyone who remembers the cries of 'Times/Citizen late edition'

another part of the face of Glasgow lost . I remember when the peter manuel saga ws going on ,there seemed to be a 'latest edition' every hour,and with no TV (well Andy Pandy ) the papers were our only source and everyone scrambling to buy and read the updates. No wonder the newspaper folk became moguls. I`m so sad to say I read more interesting news online than in the paper which I still buy ,but the craft is dying ,so the moguls have had their day and their whack.And the man who sold them outside of M&S out of a wee job that he probably loved going out ot every day in all weathers.

Yes Dykejumper, I remember it very well, especially on a Saturday night, after the football. There were early editions, then the final editions, and the cry went out from the vendors, “Times, News, and C I T I ZEN”.

They always emphasised Citizen.

The Saturday night editions were coloured, pink, white and green respectively. I used to have a wee couple of bob flutter on the horses in those days, so the football results and the racing reports were essential reading.

In those days the News sent cub reporters to do reports on amateur football matches. Their reports were published in a column which ran down the cente of the two middle pages. I remember this because one of them wrote a report of a match I played in. I got a pleasant surprise when I opened the newspaper and saw my name in print. They also used to give the results of all the Glasgow schools football matches. Many of the results were in the order of 8-1, 9-0 etc.

Thanks for reminding me of happy days.

Danny

I too have many memories of the Times and Citizen, although the last time i purchased an Evening Times many years ago i was dissapointed at the poor standard of the so called journalism, it's gone the same way as the rest of the newspapers available in Scotland and the street sellers are only the first casualty.
