Appreciate that it's not truly 'Glasgow' but an awful lot of Glasgow people did work at the Singers factory in Clydebank. Researchers working on a project called “After the Factory” want to interview people who worked in the sewing machine factory that closed in 1980.

Anyone who is interested in sharing their memories of the factory should email arts-afterthefactory@glasgow.ac.uk or phone Andrew Graham (at West Dunbartonshire Council) on 01389 772149.

(Would also be nice if such folks could share their, or their family's, stories here.)

My grandma used to work at the Singers factory in Clydebank. I don't know anything else apart from that fact though, sadly.

Singer, Singers, whatever. It's all from the same hymn sheet... BTW was a great hour long documentary on it on UK terrestial BBC1 last night.
