  1. […] few weeks ago we showed you some of the people involved in the preparations for the new Riverside Museum. This slideshow continues this series […]

  2. I have just found the photograph on your web site of a group of female Glasgow Tramway employees, taken around 1915, and wonder if you perhaps have the names of those pictured.

    • Hi, sorry to say we don’t know much about the people in this image. We do know from their tartan skirts that these women weren’t among the very first to work on the trams. For the initial experiment employing women, they were given neat blue uniforms. By the summer of 1915, the female conductors were issued with skirts in tartan and dark green.
      The Bulletin reported on the details of the uniform in August 1915, saying: “Women in uniform are still rare enough to make us feel interested, instead of being accustomed to them as they are in London. Of course, we have our tramway girls, and, I think everybody likes their outfit. The hat is a great improvement.”
      For anyone wanting to research their family tress, you can contact the Family History Centre at The Mitchell Library in Glasgow. http://www.glasgow.gov.uk/en/Residents/Library_Services/Family_Local_History/Family_History/
