For the real photographers on the board, all the B&W photos were taken using an Olympus om10, my first SLR, still have it and a canon.
Glad you liked the photos, means I

Norrie,

just had the chance to look at these photos. Great stuff, worked in both Govan and Yarrows a few years before these pics were taken. Never got to see the grand entrance at Govan or the posh offices . . . I was a lowly apprentice.

Still got to enjoy many a launch, my fave being H.M.S. Cornwall launched by the then Duchess of Cornwall, Diana. Magic stuff.

Cheers again!

Hi desginerdave, glad to have brought back some memories and opened the doors to the offices at Govan
The Offices are not used by the shipbuilders and lay derilict for a few years but they are being modernised for use by the local community, or is it for business's, no matter, they will be put to use.
Bye for now, norrie

Hi norrie

I've just discovered your photos.  They are great.

OM10  -  Fantastic series of cameras.

Must admit I'm an OM1 man myself.  Had it from new, 1974!  Also my first SLR.

Thats all for now, more will follow ;D
Bye for now.



Grew up looking at that crane every day, in Aboukir Street, hadn't realised it was taken down even though my Mother still lived in Linthouse til last summer and now lives just up the road in Drumoyne.

The black & whites taken at Govan were fascinating. They were after my time when I worked there(1974/80), then we were GSL. I've never been to a launch ow'er the watter but been to many in Govan.

After a while the only thing to look forward to at a launch was home early and the bonus (which didn't really amount to much).

However, they were good days, thanks Norrie.
