Thomas Cairns Livingston Jnr. et al. in Glasgow City Halls - 19 December, 1929, at night
Thursday 19 December, Very cold day and very wet night. Tommy booked seats at City Hall for we two, Tommy & me so at night off we go like gentlemen & heard the Scottish orchestra, among other things, play the ‘Fifth Symphony’. Gave the kitchen mantle piece a touch of varnish when I got home.
