Museum photo ?

Postby glasgowken » Mon Mar 20, 2006 2:48 am

Does anyone have a close up photo of the mannequins which used to be on the old horse tram at the Transport Museum ? I've did the usual internet searches, but nothing came up.
I seem to remember one of the GCC magazines had a nice close photo on the front cover once, but I must have lost my copy :(

Sorry glasgowken I missed this topic.

I will ask the PR department if they have any back issues relating to this. I will also check my photos. I was recently going through some old shots and have a few at the Transport Museum.

Cheers Alex, much appreciated :D
The mag in question has a close up head shot of the driver on the cover.

Sorry Ken no luck with the Glasgow magazine. They checked all their back issues and couldn't find the photo on the front. Is it possible is was another magazine? What about the one by the Friend's of Museums?

Any way here are a couple I found in my collection. Sorry about the quality.

If you have any other suggestions I will see what I can do. May be worth asking someone within CLS tomorrow.

Oops, wrong horses :D but thanks for looking Alex, appreciate it.

Yeah it may have been the friends mag, or some other GCC publication.
I think there were quite a few different mags available throughout the years, some no longer published.

I wonder why they got rid of the mannequins anyway ? Probably something to do with preventing the uniforms fading, or getting dirty.

Sorry ken these were the only ones I have. The Preview is the Friend's mag. I will see if I can locate someone with a copy to see if the photo was in there.

I am trying to find out where the mannequins have been stored and if there are any photos available. I will ask if they intend puting them back on display when the new museum is built.

It may take some time but i will get back to you.
