Walking Through Glasgow's Industrial Past sets out to retrieve the hidden architectural, cultural and historical riches of some of Glasgows working-class districts. Many who enjoy the fruits of Glasgows recent gentrification may be surprised and delighted by the gems which Ian Mitchell has uncovered beyond the usual haunts. Complete with maps of the areas covered, and illustrations and photographs of Glasgow's industrial past, this guide presents the social history of a city.

About the Author

A native of Aberdeen and author of Aberdeen Beyond the Granite, Ian has lived in Glasgow since 1973, and has written widely about his adoptive city.

Reviews

We tend to associate the figure of the 'flaneur' with Paris, a city that encourages walking through all districts. But here Mitchell reclaims it forcefully and often beautifully for Glasgow, exhorting us to explore areas once thought 'off limits' as well as the tourist attractions to provide also a history of the working class. - The Sunday Herald
