We hope you have enjoyed this online exhibition. We would like to acknowledge and thank the many people helped us to compile all the information and photographs:

Mr. I R Alexander, Mr. Tom Nicol,
Mr. Robert Burns and the Barrhead and Neilston Historical Association.

Much of the historical content was taken from the following two publications:

Shanks, Gilbert M., Shanks & Company Ltd.: The First Hundred Years 1851-1951
Mills, J G, Shanks & Company Ltd.: The Last Two Decades

Both these works are available for reference only, in Giffnock Heritage Centre.

You will find more images, artefacts and information on Shanks by searching our Heritage Catalogue.

We are always grateful for new information, photographs and ephemera on anything connected with East Renfrewshire’s history.

Shanks & Co. Ltd, 1851 – 1969
