Description

This fascinating collection of more than 220 archive images, many never before published, explores the history of the west of Glasgow over the last 150 years. Much has changed over that time, but many of the area's sweeping Victorian and Edwardian terraces retained their grandeur as fashions, faces and vehicles evolved around them. Glasgow West has remained a bustling area with a strong community and distinct local character. This book records some of the changes that have occurred; the images, each accompanied by a detailed caption, depict the much-admired buildings, shops, churches and transport networks of the area, as well as the local people at work and at play. This nostalgic volume will delight anyone who has lived or worked in the west of Glasgow and provides a valuable social record of the way things were in this thriving city.show more
