"The Story of Shanks" exhibition is now online
The exhibition, 'The Story of Shanks' which took place at Barrhead Foundry during Scottish Local History Week in March this year has now been followed by an online version. Over 200 people turned up on the day to view photographic displays, film footage and memorabilia from the famous Barrhead Company and the online exhibition gives a wider audience permanent access to some of that material.
The new exhibition can be found on Portal to the Past, East Renfrewshire's heritage website and while you are there it is well worth exploring the wealth of local historical information that can found on the site. You can also search the catalogue to view photographs and items from the Heritage collection including more photos from Shanks.
