GLASGOW EYES THROUGH TIME – 1984

Glasgow Eyes takes you back to 1984 with a collection of pictures of yesteryear in our Eyes Through Time series.

Elizabeth II still on the throne, and we had a Conservative Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher, was resident in number 10 Downing Street.

The average wage was around £16,000 annual, 72 pence for a pint of beer and a new house would cost £29.00 on average.

Aberdeen ruled the roost in football and our national team draw with the auld enemy at Hampden Park with Mark McGhee on the scoresheet.

The Cure played the Glasgow Barrowland and the best selling single 0f the year  was Band-Aid

If you have any memories of your favourite year send them in with some of your pics.
