Hi there!

My name is Heather Robertson and I'm a researcher for The Riverside Project at Glasgow's Museum of Transport.

I am currently researching 1930's Glasgow cycle shops. I would like to get in touch with anybody who remembers working in, shopping in, or visiting a cycle shop in the thirties. Perhaps as a child you were bought or bought for yourself your first bicycle in Glasgow or you remember your parents or other family members cycling at this time. If so, I would love to hear from you!

I can be contacted at: 0141 2872748

Hi Heather
While I wasn't even born in the era you are talking about. My Mum and Dad were cyclist and they got their bikes from two shops in the Govan area. McCulloch's and McNeil's both in Govan Rd. They were still there in the 50's as I was in them then.

Cheers
