Villages of Glasgow by Aileen Smart
Book DescriptionSwallowed up in the Victorian expansion of the city, the South Side of Glasgow contains a myriad of small villages and small communities, each still with their own identity, history and traditions. This is their story. From the Dark Age burial ground of the Kings of Strathclyde at Govan to the Crossmyloof Ice Rink, the area south of the Clyde is a fascinating cross section of Scotland's past and a mine of extraordinary anecdote, personalities and legends. 'We're Railwaymen at Polmadie In a hotter place you couldn'a be And when in Hell we gather when we dee We'll be nane the waur than in Polmadie' Cardonald - Cathcart - Crossmyloof - The Gorbals - Govan - Govanhill - The Hurlet - Langside - Nitshill - Pollokshaws - Polmadie - Strathbungo Last reprinted in 1998, this new edition is completely revised and updated with a substantially increased number of plates.
