Graeme’s Pictures: Relays

Graeme took many photographs of the Glasgow students in action – or loaned his camera to others to take them for him.   Everybody likes relays.   We start this selection with photographs from the Perth North Inch Relays, then there will be some from the Edinburgh to Glasgow in 1967.

The start: On the side the two runners are Craig Douglas of Teviotdale and Hugh Barrow of VPAACl on the infield Henry Summerhill of Shettleston stands out.   Willie Allan adds:  Alec Wight Ed.
