We're in Kent Street today, at the heart of the Barras , as one of the market halls takes shape.

The year is 1954, and there seems to be more talking than working going on. Mind you, the original caption says the workies - a skeleton staff - were waiting on the arrival of the asbestos roofing panels. Hope they've since been removed and replaced!

The only guys who are hard at it are the three bill posters, perched precariously, top left, making sure they've got all the panels of their Ovaltine advert stuck up straight.

Love the advert, too, for Aitken's Falkirk Beer. Looks from the image that a pint or two of that would have put a tiger in your tank!
