Bearing a rich history and proud traditions, in the nineteenth century Scotland generated vast wealth through commerce, manufacturing and heavy industry which made Glasgow the 'Second City of the Empire' and shipbuilder to the world. This book covers the development of the Clyde Navigation, and the international exhibitions which took place in Kelvingrove and showed Glasgow off to the world. The photographs also show the drastic changes to the city as it was in the eighteenth century, changes that produced handsome new streets and urban parks, as well as increasingly fetid slums and unsightly factories. Later demolition of the historic core of the city by unsentimental Glaswegians made way for new public buildings, housing, the central shopping area and a modern railway system. This book also reflects the character of the hardworking population whose chequered lives have created the modern city of Glasgow. Glasgow in Old Photographs.
