Tour Scotland Video Bust Of Harry Alfred Long Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum Glasgow

Tour Scotland video of the bust statue of Harry Alfred Long in Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum on ancestry visit to Glasgow, Scotland. Harry was a missionary and an anti-Catholic orator. Originally from Cambridge, England. Long came to Glasgow to work at St Jude’s Episcopal Church. He became a missionary with the Working Men’s Evangelical Society, helping to feed, clothe and find beds for the unemployed in the Bridgeton area. He was a committed Orangeman and an active supporter of the Conservative Party. A fiery orator, he drew large crowds on Glasgow Green to hear him “railing at the Pope and the Devil,” and he was a prolific writer of polemical tracts, leaflets and books.
