Did you work for the Govan Press (Cossar)?

The Trust is cur­rent­ly work­ing to save and pre­serve a Cos­sar Press invent­ed by John Cos­sar of the Clyde­bank firm which oper­at­ed from 1778 until 1983 at 577–581 Gov­an Road, Glas­gow. This print­ing machine com­bined the sim­plic­i­ty and econ­o­my of a flatbed press with the speed and con­ve­nience of print­ing on a reel of newsprint, direct from type. The Trust would be inter­est­ed to hear from any­one who worked for the com­pa­ny. Con­tact the Hon­orary Sec­re­tary for more details, or write to us at the address on the Con­tacts page.
