With thanks again to John Reid for emailing me some of his photos.
Here’s a great photo of the old shop at 108 Glasgow Road, in the former Co building, pictured here in the 1970’s. John told me his windows were smashed out by vandals and rather than him incur the cost of replacing them, he simply boarded them over and painted them!
Also pictured is a great painting from 1989, showing John’s bespoke red rolltop building, much larger premises he moved to in the early 80s. You can read all about JR Reid Printers history from beginning until John’s retirement here.
