Glasgow CC memorabilia - Alan McGowan - 04-12-2020

Does anyone have any idea about the whereabouts of Glasgow CC memorabilia that was likely disposed off at the same time their library was auctioned off in the 1960s?

It is known that the club had exhibited Rules and lists of members from the 1840s and 1850s. It is also known that group photos of members were taken in 1898, 1908 and 1927 (there may have been others) and these also used to hang on the clubroom walls.

I approached Gerald Bonner but he does not know who might have purchased these items.

Thanks for any tips.
