Heritage Centre dream realised

HELENSBURGH now has a Heritage Centre.

The long held dream of Helensburgh Heritage Trust was realised on Tuesday May 1 2012 when the new Heritage Room at Helensburgh Library in West King Street was officially opened by Provost Billy Petrie — his final duty as Provost and councillor after 45 years in local government.

John Logie Baird Display

A professionally designed exhibit about John Logie Baird was installed in the library in West King Street in the spring of 2000.

The design is such that it can be moved and taken to another site when the Heritage Trust has premises of its own. The aim was to present an aspect of John Logie Baird which is rarely portrayed in all the writings about him.

Helensburgh Hospital door panel

IN the Helensburgh bicentenary year, 2002, a glass panel was spied at Edinburgh Architectural Salvage Yard by a Community Councillor who, on closer examination, saw that it had belonged to an early Helensburgh Hospital and notified the Trust.

A bargain was struck and the panel was bought by the Trust with the aim of carrying out necessary repairs and framing the panel in a light box.
