Need to get into the Chambers to get a photo of Sir William Gray. Also need to do a little research on his time as Lord Provost.

Thanks Vinny for sharing such a great story. Typical Glasgow story don't you think


He's actually on the last picture of this website's page - it's a website on the history of the Glasgow Police - at their last parade before Strathclyde took over.  Good website and worth a look (if it's not already posted somewhere here).

Hi there, do any of you know where the portrait of william Gray is located? I suppose it might well be in the city chambers.
