The good folk at @NativeGlasgow - the fancy new aparthotel in the Anchor Line building - are hosting a tea party, and would like to invite anyone with a personal or family connection to the building, or the former shipping line, to come along for a cuppa, a natter and a nosey.

The Anchor Line building in the 1920s (Glasgow University Archives)Anchors away!

The upper floors of the building have been imaginatively restyled and restored, incorporating the original wood panelling, ornate marble fireplaces, and even the old walk-in safes, which once held the company's wages, and gold bullion destined for foreign shores.

Tea will be served from 11am, on Monday March 25, with tours and chinwags to follow.

If you can make it along, RSVP to
