Central Glasgow through time

by Etta Dunn | 15 June 2014
Category: General History
Once a relatively small rural settlement on the River Clyde, Glasgow expanded dramatically over the centuries to become the largest city in Scotland. From the early eighteenth century, Glasgow prospered as it emerged as one of Britain's principal transatlantic trade hubs with North America and the West Indies, as well as one of the world's largest seaports. As the Industrial Revolution took hold, Glasgow continued to thrive, becoming world famous for its shipbuilding and marine industries. In Victorian times Glasgow was recognised as the 'Second City of the British Empire', while today it is one of the top ten financial centres in Europe. In 2014, Glasgow will be brought to the world's attention once more when it plays host to the Commonwealth Games. Central Glasgow Through Time explores the heart of this vibrant, modern and stylish city through a series of old and new images, and celebrates the rich history and heritage of this part of Glasgow.
