A brief perusal of Socialist Productions website announces the opening of Calton Books in Glasgow, a Left wing bookshop which also sells similar Leftist merchandise. As the notice states:
“If you live in Glasgow or its surrounding areas you may want to visit our new initiative – Calton Books (www.calton-books.co.uk) which is based at the Barras a 10 minute walk from Glasgow Cross at 159 London Road.”
Good luck to both ventures!
