Colvilles Ltd Mail Bag

This bag was used to carry mail between the steel giant's Dalzell Works in Motherwell and its headquarters in Glasgow.

Each of the company's locations would put mail into their own bags. A driver would collect the bags and take them to the Glasgow office on Oswald Street. The bags would then be returned.
