Re: Arrol-Johnston & Galloway Cars - Dumfries & Tongland

Thanks Banjo. I'm sure someone, unlike me, who actually has a gift for photography would have got some amazing results with the light and reflections in there.

Episode one was filmed at Stobhill. They wanted to use the old block theatres at GRI but that was turned down.


I believe Knightswood Hospital was partially used in various episodes as well.

Re: Any "Glasgow At Christmas" vintage pics?

There's a 1980 photo of Frasers' main hall decorated for Christmas in the Douglas Corrance book 'Glasgow'.
As well as the Mitchell library, you will find it in every second-hand bookshop in Glasgow.

Re: George Bennie Railplane

As a temporary Scot 1952-3 (my father was in the RN and was standing by the Royal Yacht being build at John Brown's shipyard on the Clyde) I can remember seeing what I now know to be the remnants of the George Bennie Railplane near the (old) Bearsden Academy, which I attended.

Re: Bread -Bakers

I think Roots & Fruits get their bread from Kember & Jones; You can buy it in their restaurant on Byres Road. Pekhams also sell nice breads. In fact, there's about four or five shops on that block between University Avenue and University Place selling decent "Artisan" breads.
