History Of Glasgow
Glasgow is a city that has seen great change. Once the second city of the Empire, it was in 1999 chosen as the UK City of Architecture and Design. Beneath the veil of industrial grime, it would seem, was a place of incredible beauty. In this stunning guide to the city, re-released in paperback due to popular demand, authors Robert Jeffrey and Ian Johnson illustrate the history of this transformation.
A fascinating story of the development and growth of Glasgow's famous West End (possibly Scotland's grandest and most opulent Victorian suburb) this volume is appropriately lavish in its photography with more than 300 historic images (many never before published) included to illustrate the story. Along Great Western Road charts the architectural and social development of the West End from its earliest beginnings to the present day, celebrating the area's picturesque town-scape, illustrious residents (both past and present) and famous institutions, not least the University of Glasgow campus itself.
