ooJANUARY - The Sales


The outer banner shows a map of the world surmounted by a merchant ship suggesting Glasgow's place in international trade. The world is surrounded by the letter "G" beginning the spelling out of the city's name.

The inner image was designed by Sandi Kiehlmann and is predominantly worked in machine embroidery. The panel celebrates city dwellers' love of bargain hunting. Needless to say it is raining and the hapless couple shelter under their umbrella while all around them there are very amusing illustrations of typical scenes at the January Sales!
