Hi to all you Partick Lovers out there. My Grandad (Andrew Edgar) had a blacksmiths shop in Merkland Street from 1920 to 1942 where , amongst other things, he made the rivets and other metal items used in shipbuilding. I never knew him (he died in 1942) but my dad took me to his workshop which was being used by ,I think, Johnson's Rolls in the early 1960's. I can't remember how far down it was, on the left hand side walking from Dumbarton Road.

He had a wife Margaret, daughters Marion and Edith and a son Norman and lived in Maule Drive, then 1 Partickhill Rd.

I hope someone can help me put the last piece in the jigsaw.

Many Thanks

Graham

Welcome to the forum, Graham.

I hope someone can help with the information you are after.

There's another thread up on Partick so maybe you would like to place your query there.
