In this informative and beautifully illustrated book, Carol Foreman traces Glasgow's history through buildings which have been demolished, but which once played a central part in the life of the city. Beginning with the medieval age, she goes on to look at a massive selection of buildings right through to the 1930s.
The result is a fascinating picture of how the city evolved and how major events over the centuries affected its trade, people and environment. Churches, banks, hospitals, theatres, cinemas as well as domestic buildings all feature in this illuminating journey through Glasgow's rich architectural past.
'Carol Foreman conjures a personal and compelling vision, full of character, detail and anecdote, of a city in which she so obviously believes. It is a belief every Glaswegian should share'* Daily Mail *
