Product Description

Details

Famed as the second city of the empire, Glasgow's origins lie not only in the medieval town based around the High Street, but also in the numerous villages outside the city boundaries, including Anderston and Partick. As the city spread, the villages were consumed and the social conditions within them gradually altered. This book charts these changes through eye-witness accounts drawn from the archives and the local press. The book begins in 1751, with a report on a flea circus presented by John Jarvis in a flat in the Trongate. From then on, the entries reflect the myriad activities and happenings that occurred in all walks of life on the bank of the Clyde. Revealing the patchwork of lives and loves of everyday people, the book is a revealing portrait of how people have existed in the area over 250 years.
