LET'S GIVE BRIAN A Sheila McDermid

Newlands' Blog Photographer and Admin Team guy, Mr. Brian Charlton, has taken many photos for folks who take up his offer to go around and take foties of their old house etc. He doesn't often hear back from them, (with a wee thanks) but he generously carries on - quietly doing a lot of good work for Newlands Blog Readers ....So it was nice to receive recently this email sent by Shiela McDermid, in Ontario, who thinks Brian Charlton is a swell guy and wrote in to say so. Sheila's "Thank You" is printed here as she requested.....


"I want to take a moment to thank Brian Charlton for his generosity in taking time to photograph various areas of Glasgow for me. He was quick to get back to me again, and his photos were amazing.

I'm really hoping I have found the area where my ancestors once lived - and knowing that on my visit in Glasgow last spring - that I may have been so close (and yet so far) from standing on that property.... was almost overwhelming.

Again - thank you so much Brian, for taking time off your busy day to help a fellow Scot (Canadian Scot). I hope to come back for a visit some day......and if anyone has any information on any of the names listed above...please do not hesitate to contact me."

Yes, Brian Charlton on here has been very good with his offer to go and find certain places we ask for - and take pictures for us. But I didn't realize he was just doingthis of his owhn bat. I thought he was a staff person as I don't know anything about websites except to read them. Thanks for the photos. It's appreciated, should've said thanks at the time, so apologies are called for.
