With only 12 days of the 'A Game of 2 Halves' show left at Summerlee Museum in Coatbridge, I'd like to thank everyone who went along and also all those who bought a photojournal. The feedback has been really positive and the whole experience unique. There will also be another smaller Albion Rovers exhibition coming to Hampden Stadium in November with some different photos on display. More to follow on this...
When Summerlee closes down, some of the material will go back to to the lenders, would be good if a record could be kept of who had what for any future event, would also be good if some of the material could make its way to Cliftonhill for display purposes, thinking of the pictures, particularly the big ones. I assume The club could use them to tart up the Board Room, the Lounge and the corridors.
Spent a good few hours at this today. Brilliant photos and the documentary was fantastic. Also good to see there were still a lot of people at it this late in the run. Does anyone know where I can buy a copy of The Boys From the Brig or Champion Albion? Looked online but no luck.
Ped, there are currently 2 copies of "Boys From the Brig" on EBay. 1. is a "Buy Now" at £9.99 + postage £3.00 from meadowbank74. 2. is the same price but £3.90 postage ...it's an auction but it also has a "make an offer" option. Can't find anything on Amazon for Champion Albion but someone else on this site had a copy recently. Sorry, I can't find details. You could do a quick round of local charity shops in Coatbridge/Airdrie first.
Ped Coatbridge Library have boxes of The Boys from the 'Brig, selling them at 50p a time. Hurry while stocks last.
I had lost my copy of Champion Albion, and searched around until I was given a copy by a friend. Recently, there was one copy of Champion Albion available to buy from Airdrie Library, it is spare to their reference copy. You could ask Coatbridge Library if they have any copies of Champion Albion as well.
