(Can you help???)

The Glasgow Web Site is pleased to offer help by posting questions about Glasgow on the WWW. If you have any particular question you would like answered contact "The Glasgow Web Site".

More importantly, if anyone out there can answer the questions,
please let me know!!!!


My grandmother, Ethel Shaw, trained or worked as a nurse in Glasgow in the early 1920's.  I have been unable to find out where she worked & am wondering if anyone recognises the buildings in the attached photos.  I was told she worked at the Glasgow Royal Infirmary but they have no record of her.  She lived in Yoker. 

My Uncle says she used to catch the Renfrew ferry to work (which I believe went Yoker to Renfrew), if this helps. One other vague piece of information. The hospital where she worked used to hold dances & officers from the ships were invited to attend. This is where she met my Pop. He worked for Barclay Curle in Whiteinch as a ships plumber.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
