Rural told of city landmarks
Jackton SWI president Agnes Strang welcomed members to their latest meeting.
The speakers for the evening were Tom Marchant and his wife Josette, who gave a very interesting and informative illustrated talk on the Glasgow bridges, with Josette talking through her ferry trip from Glasgow to Braehead.
Tom started off his historical trail walk at the Dalmarnock Bridge then went over another 20 bridges in Glasgow.
He took in important landmarks all over Glasgow from days gone by.
This included the busy shipyards and how the Glasgow Garden Festival had promoted the city 30 years ago. Tom said he was sorry that the gardens had not been maintained so that the people of Glasgow could still be enjoying them today.
Katy Oliver gave a very well deserved vote of thanks.
The competition for a ruler was won by Agnes Strang and second place went to Jean Shearer.
