A travel journal of Jack Lindsay, and some prints, textiles and workbooks of Dorothy C Smith. Not to mention the fabulous fashion illustrations by Garcia Hunter.

Helen Izzard 1929-2014

Although Helen has not been in the Hall for a while, she was a huge part of the Nan McKay for many years. She lived in St John's Quadrant and moved to St Andrews Crescent, always a stone's throw from the hall. She was a regular church goer and that smile was always there, a captivating personality, she brightened up any group she attended.

 Helen was born on 7th November 1929.

The family would like to welcome hall members, friends and neighbours to join the family in remembering Helen at Craigton Crematorium on
Thursday 6th March at 1030am
and then a service at 11am  in Pollokshields Parish Church, Shields Road, G41 2RF and refreshments
