I'm not sure if you'll be able to help but I'm looking for someone to lead a guided walking tour of the Gorbals area on Thursday 28th February to discuss the regeneration of the area with my Higher Geography class. Would you be able to provide someone or could you please direct me to the appropriate person?

Anecdote My husband, David Peat , took wonderful photographs of children around the Gorbals, Govan and Maryhill in 1968. Sadly David died this year but his collection of photos has been put in a book An Eye on the Street. It's 9.99 and the family is keen to find any of the children in the photos as there is an exhibition in Edinburgh next year. Anyone recognise themselves?
