  • Hi there Chris. Thanks for this round up - very nice. I may have a task for you. I am trying to track down a particular 1930s issue of a modest Glasgow publication: 'St Mungo's the 'organ of the Scottish postal workers' trades union''. None of the newspaper archives in England or Scotland seem to have it. Best wishes, Anita
