Glasgow Clippings/Adverts

Postby viceroy » Thu Mar 23, 2006 8:37 pm

Amazing what you find when you're having a rummage through your drawers. This is a newspaper clipping from the Daily Record dated Friday, August 20, 1982. It was amusing at the time. Maybe it still is.

O.K., here's another one. Slightly more upmarket this time. From the Guardian - don't have a date but I think it's around 1987/1988. Nothing to do with Glasgow of course, but what the hell.

Pre-war reminiscences of the Barras in a letter to the Glasgow Herald dated 8th April 1983. Note the posh references to "Barrows" instead of "Barras".

One for the anoraks - a laptop computer as advertised by Victor Morris in the Glasgow Herald, January 27th 1983.

Well maybe you can help me out cause I need the year to go with the topic I intend for the other side of this clipping. A real Hidden Glasgow story.

Any idea bout the year viceroy?

and note "Canteen facilities" not a barrow with pre packed pieces

Non Contributory pension too but why did they need somebody to supervise the males?
