"Mrs Brisbane goes her messages" in Calton, early 20th century.
To "go your messages" in Glasgow means to go shopping, usually for food. This row of shops in Green Street contains a laundry, a branch of the Labour Party, a fruit and vegetable shop and an off-licence with a sign advertising Dandelion Stout.
