Last mile or so of the 1987 Glasgow Marathon, in Ballater St. My brother was running in it, and that's my sister-in-law with Nephews #1, #2, and #3.


My brother. He was pretty well spaced-out by this stage, past the 25 mile mark, and didn't even notice his family waving by the roadside, which disappointed the nephews. He hadn't done many marathons before this but got right into it and recorded sub-2hr40 in later years, which is seriously good. Then in 1997 he was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease which progressively incapacitated him and he died in 2001, aged 58. Pray that nobody you care for is ever afflicted by this dreadful disease.


Two of the elite runners in the 1986 marathon, in Pollok Park.

GGF, 1988. Nephews #1 & #2 on the Blackpool tram.


GGF again, on a Standard tram. At Stobcross Quay is the Nienburg, an auxiliary ship of the (then) West German Navy.

A southside wedding. I have barely any recollection of taking these and know none of the participants. I have no idea why I should have been there, and can only think that I just happened to be passing the church (Merrylea Parish on Merrylee Road) and dropped in. Probably late 1960s.

Some milk-run shots I'd forgotten about, taken on a particularly foul day in November 1978.
Sleety, haily morning in Carham Drive.

In Fife Avenue.

PRW from no.2049, across from Bankfoot Rd.

In PRW.

Three views over the city from high points in the Queen's Park in around 1976. I'll leave whoever finds them to point out features of interest, if there are any.

Finally, 2 self-portraits, June 1975 and February 1977. And what's more, I haven't changed a bit. Oh hang on, except my nose has suddenly got a lot longer.
