THESE young models from Trerons turned heads in April, 1958 on a practice jaunt along Sauchiehall Street.

Trudy Morton, Loretta Rhodie and Ann Cooper were slightly better dressed than the average shopper in the city centre.

The three women were parading spring fashions ahead of the famous department store’s display at the forthcoming weekend.

Many Times Past readers speak fondly of Treron’s, one of the city’s most glamorous shops, which modelled itself on the fine retail outlets of early twentieth century Paris.

Some reports describe it as Treron et Cie and others as Treron’s Magasin des Tuileries, and it opened in 1904.

The grand building, on the corner of Rose Street, was originally built as an art gallery to house the collection of Archibald McLellan, which was bequeathed to the city on his death and transferred to Kelvingrove.

New exhibition halls, galleries and a grand staircase were added eight years later.

“It was a very classy place, with a lovely, elegant tearoom and a fantastic china and glass department,” says Fiona Anderson, who grew up in Knightswood.

“I remember my glamorous aunties taking me there for tea and cake when I must have been about nine or 10, and I felt very grown-up and sophisticated.”

She adds: “I remember gazing in awe at the window displays on Sauchiehall Street too. The mannequins always looked very stylish. I loved all the floaty dresses and nightwear.”
