Was the band in the window moved to the Museum of Childhood in Edinburgh?

Just found this great site today. Regarding Schipka Pass, i am researching my family history and apparently my g.grandfather and his children operated a shoe/slipper manufacturing shop from no. 5 Schipka Pass. I would love to know more if anyone has any information. The G.grandfather was born in Ireland in 1842 - name - John Trimble, married Catherine Curzon and had 9 children. Any info would be kindly appreciated, Kind regard Mags (McGuire -nee Mckay, mothers maiden name - Trimble)


I've only just came across this, better late than never :?

First record of the name Trimble appears in 1893:

1893 - 1895
John Trimble, Slipper Manufacturer, 21 Schipka Pass. No home address given
William Trimble, Yarn Merchant & Agent, Box 29, Royal Exchange: house 4 Battlefield Ave, Langside
(brothers?)

1896 - 1897
John Trimble, Slipper Manufacturer, 21 Schipka Pass: house 1 Schipka Pass

1897
William Trimble, Yarn Merchant & Agent, Box 29, Royal Exchange is no longer listed

1898 - 1901
John Trimble, Slipper Manufacturer, 21 Schipka Pass. No home address given

1902
no records of John Trimble trading or living anywhere in Glasgow from this date onwards

Its a bit of an unsolved mystery what happened to the models etc. They surely must be in storage somewhere. maybe sitting under an dustsheet waiting to be discovered. There was a Mod on here was looking into it at one point. i remeber seeing some of them on dispaly in a shop next door to the krazy house for a while, but that shop is gone now as well.

Yes I worked with a relative of the owner. He was looking into it but then resigned and moved abroad and we lost touch. I recently heard he was back in the UK so will have another try at getting information.

I handled the advertising for Alec Duman in the 70's - usually he was keener to show me the latest addition to his collection of 'musical mechanical' objects than discuss ads. One week it would be classified lineage, the next a double page spread in the Evening Times featuring drawings of his collection. One notable promotion was when I organised a visit from Santa - dropping him in (with elves) by helicopter to Glasgow Green and then a parade to the store. I remember that Alec wanted an elephant in the parade - I did manage to borrow some animals from Calderpark zoo, but it was too cold for the elephants. He once told me he had a part as an extra in the movie 'Casablanca' - I would not be surprised if that was true.
There's a movie in there - if not a book - about the Dumans!!
