The Anchor Line

Glasgow Museums has 61 colourful posters advertising the Anchor Line. On the last day of February, Emily Malcolm, Curator at Riverside Museum, used these to illustrate the story of the Anchor Line for over 100 years. Twelve of these posters will be on show in a new display at Riverside Museum which will open in the Spring time. This was a popular lecture which was followed by a lively discussion.

Honeyman Garden.

Friends will remember the successful appeal for funds for the Honeyman  Garden in Kelvingrove Park. Rosemary  Bremner has used money remaining after the initial refurbishment of the garden, which honours her grandparents, to buy extra plants, including anemones, grasses, ferns and hostas and some bulbs. With the help of her husband, John, and Wayne Travis from Land Services, she planted them out in November and it is hoped that in the Spring the garden will be more colourful.

Glasgow Cathedral, 8th February 2017

On a cold February day, twenty two Friends were pleased to be in Glasgow Cathedral to find out about the church and the stained glass under the guidance of Marion Maudsley and Anne Robertson. Even on a dull day, the outstanding collection of 20th century stained glass illustrated many interesting stories. The tour was oversubscribed and has been so well received that there are plans to repeat it in the Autumn.
