Advert: James Ramage Motor Hirer


1950 James Ramage Advert wmMr. James Ramage had a Motor hire business located in the 1940’s and 1950’s at “Viewfield”at Low Blantyre.

His Blantyre telephone number was simply 235. His adverts promised personal attention with moderate charges. Can you tell me more about this business?

Moyra Lindsay I remember it beside the tomato houses.
Mary Crowe It was in Viewfield Avenue from the cottage and as Moyà says it was next to the tomato houses which were run by Misses Brown.
Rena Connor As a child in the in winter we often got Mr Ramage taxi from my Grans in Blantyre to Caldervale, I remember he wore a dark suit & a hat, a very polite man.
