By any chance, do you know the name of a large hairdressers in Bridgeton Cross around 1943 or 1944. My mum could not remember its name, and I have had no success finding out.
Maureen, the well known barbers at Bridgeton Cross was Scobies.

Thank you for your help. My mum died in 2021 at 92. I am writing her story. It annoyed her that she couldn't remember the name of the hairdressers where she started work. I wish I could tell her now!  You have made me very happy.  
She was Teresa Coulter, and lived at 35 Beechgrove Street. She worked at Scobie's when she left school in 1943, thereafter she worked in Bamber's in Charing Cross, Glasgow.

Still a splendid building but unfortunately Scobie's barbers is no longer with us.
The impressive ex TSB Savings Bank is now a William Hill's the bookie.
