I now have a photo of the Victoria Motorcycle Works in Dennistoun taken in the 1970's - yes the building was still there then!
Can anybody recall it an let us know exactly where it stood?
The picture can be seen at http://www.bawdeswell.net/victoria/jcoxon.html

Thank you

There were shops at 71 Cathedral Street and 78-82 Hanover Street in the centre of Glasgow. Customers could watch their bicycles being made there.
