(Old) Maggie Bell, flowerseller

I have just discovered that my great-aunt Margaret Bell sold flowers, possibly outside a Glasgow hospital.  She died in 1963 and it has been suggested  that there was a newspaper article written about Old Maggie at the time.  Does anyone know of her or can recommend where to look for this newspaper article.  Many thanks, Marje

Try the Mitchell Library Majey

They have copies of all the old Glasgow newspapers and they have indexes so worth a look. They have the Evening Time, Daily Record, Glasgow Herald and the Citizen.

Good luck

Thank you for the suggestion. I'll hopefully get something there!  Marje xx

You could always try this as well - it has the Herald and Evening Times covering that period.
