JOIN us as we take a trip down memory lane to reminisce about what was happening in Clydebank fifteen years ago. 

We have delved into the Post's archives to pick out some stories from over a decade ago.

Here are some photographs from our edition published on Wednesday, November 26, 2008. 

Do you remember these stories or spot any familiar faces?

Jim O'Donnell, who was 54 at the time of publication, was a well-known friendly face who welcomed shoppers at the town's Asda store but many were unaware of his artist alter ego Jody, which was the name he always signed his paintings with.

Jim was always interested in painting as a hobby but was getting more serious over the previous ten years and had sold several paintings and prints.

A budding Bankie axe-man wowed rock experts to win a radio station's guitar competition.

Pedro Andre, who moved to the town from Portugal, came up with a searing riff to be aired on an advert for Elixir strings.

The Slash wannabe landed a goody bag from the station and a year's supply of guitar strings after sending in his guitar 'lick' online.
