A big pat on the back from the newbie........

.......and a shameless request for a favour!

As you'll have noticed I'm new to the site.  In the process of putting together a "This Is Your Life" style scrapbook for my mum who used to live in Glasgow and through googling a random collection of words, I somehow landed here and I'm mighty glad I did - I've literally spent hours going through all the photos of old Glasgow (the 60s/70s when mum lived there) - just what I was looking for!!

I am still looking for photos to fill in a few blanks and wonder if anyone could point me in the direction of some old photos of Cranhill, Skerryvore Road, Milncroft Primary etc.

Also, and this might seem quite random, mum seems to remember seeing monkeys at The Barras that you could get your picture taken with - anyone else recall these or, better yet, have any pics?

Sorry for the gigantic first post but well done on a treasure trove of a site
