Glasgow's Miles Better Badges

Glasgow's Miles Better Badges from 1983. Launched in June 1983, The Glasgow's Miles Better Campaign was one of the best promotions ever mounted by a British city. Its message was vigorously promoted by Lord Provost Michael Kelly and PR man Harry Diamond. The campaign was an initiative aimed at correcting the outdated ideas that many people in Scotland, the UK and abroad had of the city. The aim was to inform and educate people that Glasgow was no longer the proverbial 'No Mean City'. Property of Robert Pool
