The shops in Grey Place, Greenock are being given a facelift before the coming tourist season. They are along the route that tourists from the cruise ships take when they walk into town. Underneath all the tat and neon of modern signage a few gems are being exposed.
Fabulous sign writing.
Once upon a time all these shops must have had similar frontages. I found this photograph from an archive of photographs of Greenock from the 60s and 70s. This shows the same area.
The photographs are by Eugene Mehat and are a remarkable glimpse into Greenock as I remember it when I was a wee lassie! If you know anyone who lived in Greenock, let them know about these photographs.
Now - blogging stuff! I need some help!
1. How do I get to reply under comments - often when I try to email a reply it's a "no reply blogger" and I've noticed that some bloggers are able to reply right under individual comments.
2. When I try to add photographs to my sidebar I get a message that I have reached my limit, yet I can still post photographs on my actual blog. I know that there comes a time when you have to pay to store more photos, but why is this just happening when I try to change my sidebar photos?!
Hope someone can answer my questions.
