‘My dad, Robert Littlejohn, was a sheet metal worker in the shipyards and a keen photographer. He would always take brother and I to visit places of interest and tell us wonderful stories about Glasgow’s past and present. One of the stories he used to tell us was about a famous magical curiosity shop in Glasgow where anything could happen and magic tricks could be bought..... I thought it would be interesting to reach out to the other artists working in the building to see what inspired them about Glasgow, what stories they would tell and how they would tell them.’ - Nancy Littlejohn, 2018
