This is DC Thomson's retouching department based in Kingsway. Picture taken in 1974.
They worked on the negatives as part of the pre-printing preparations.
The guy in the photo is working on a page called "Linda of Nursery Rhyme Land" which I think may be for Bimbo.
Needless to say, nowadays it's all done on computer rather than by hand.
