This book is not only an attempt to reinsert into public consciousness the architectural and cultural delights of Glasgows working-class areas. It also recaptures the social and political history of the working-classes of those districts. Ian Mitchells affection for his adopted city shines through every page of this book. He has lived in Glasgow exactly the same number of years as I have yet his knowledge and appreciation of the city put me to shame. More importantly the book has inspired me to put on my walking boots and head for Govan Road, Bridgeton Cross and Tollcross Park. I am sure it will have the same effect on many of its readers. From the Foreword by ELEANOR GORDON Professor of Gender and Social History, University of Glasgow
