I'm Stephen, live in a small village in the Renfrewshire area called Houston.
I've got a great interest in the history of the areas around where I live. In particular I have an interest in the history of Glasgow Airport and was absolutely delighted to see the "Glasgow Airport Thread" which had a link to the Site Record with loads of pictures of the place, have spent ages building up a collection of pictures of the former airport (before BAA took it over and destroyed it pretty much, wiping all of it's history away
). Another area of interest is the "Craigends" Estate which I've been looking around for pictures to do past-presents for a while now, so you may see some of that in the future
I discovered this excellent forum a few days ago and needless to say I ended up spending several hours browsing through the Past Present threads
Other interests include politics, website design and economics.
And yeah, that's me, look forward to contributing to the thread and learning more about the fascinating history of the city that is Glasgow and the areas outside it
