Re: Glasgow department stores

can't say l have but l could work out when the company started and hopefully when in ceased trading if you want. Please do if you can.

Re: Glasgow department stores

My fascination and infatuation with Reid &Todds is still ongoing. Well why not? Exotic travelling accoutrements, writing desks and the lovely smell of "leather fancy goods" ( I'm safe with that comment Fossil hasn't been here for a while) If I had a travelling machine and I set it for ...
