Corn Yellow, 1957

We hope you have enjoyed this online exhibition. Many people helped us to compile all the information and photographs and we would like to thank and acknowledge: 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Much of the historical content was taken from the following two publications: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 online catalogue.

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