A typical station in 1952 - but it's in the transportation museum in Glasgow! The car on the right still has the lettering "Subway". The figure in the distance is grandson Geoff.
An actual, operating station (Kelvinbridge), with one of the current trains. I understand that this now carries the nickname "The Clockwork Orange" because of the strong colour! (This happened when the movie of that name made its debut). My wife Eufron appears in this picture.
