Thanks for your reply. Your Mum's name doesn't come to mind right now. I worked there in late 1954

This is probably from the late 70's early 80's but does anyone remember Jacksons Krazy House? situated at the trongate? I remember being taken as a child and have memories of old victorian type arcade games and pld fairground rides you would puta penny in and they would all light up and play tunes etc!

God knows what they sold but my Dad said it was a load of 'shite'! When they were having special promotions they would have Go Go dancers in the window, I remember thinking, god, thats wot I want to do when i grow up lol

Was there not a Graftons on Sauchiehall Street across the road from Hendersons and Boots the Chemist and Saxone? I remember shopping there and also in Watt Bros., Coplands and Pettigrews. My mother worked there (in Pettigrews) in the Lingerie department after I was married. There were some wonderful shops in that part of Sauchiehall Street.

Linda What every woman wants was at the end of town you mentioned , but Ritas was up the other end.
There was a lot of boutiquey places around at the same time , like Virgo and Capricorn which were both on Argylle Street and Etams and Wallis were there too.
