Do any of you know the famous Glasgow restaurant Rogano's? I have just found this really interesting story. Apparently during the 1940's and 1950's, Rogano's got their oysters from ................Portpatrick!!! I learn something every day. ...

We return to Exchange Place today, for (another glimpse of Porteous’ bookshop, left) and a visit to Glasgow’s oldest surviving seafood restaurant. Rogano started life in 1874, as the Bodega Spanish Wine Cellar. Owned by James Henry Roger and his silent partner Mr Anderson, its name comes from ROGer and ANO to represent "ANOther"). In 1935 the restaurant was bought by Donald Grant, who changed it into the Art Deco jewel that remains today. Grant fitted out his new restaurant to mirror the style of the Cunard liner the Queen Mary, which had just been built on the Clyde by John Brown & Co of Clydebank. Legend has it that the foremen from the yard paid their bar bills at Rogano with lengths of burr walnut and bird's eye maple panelling specified for the liner! During the 1940s and 1950s, with Grant in charge, the restaurant had its own stretch of river for salmon, and bought in lobsters from Brora and oysters from Portpatrick. In this picture, the venue still had two entrances; one for the off sales and one into the bar/restaurant. The venue celebrates its 80th birthday next month. Picture: Glasgow Libraries
