Some “old-timers” turned back their memories this week when Roy McMurtrey, in excavating for the new Gulf station on the site of the former Myers and John Potts homes on North Broadway opposite Brown Ice Cream Co., turned up numerous timbers which have evidently been buried about 50 years following abandonment of the old Tannery which up until abut 60 years ago was one of Glasgow’s prominent industries. Just north of the Tannery site, corner Water and Broadway, was the location of the old Myers Mill which burned when Dick Garnett was “just a wee lad”, thus making it a long time ago. If our memory serves us correctly the Tannery was last operated by the late Felix N. Bradford.
