Welcome To The Villages Of Glasgow Scotland

Welcome To The Villages Of Glasgow Scotland. This work covers the dozen or so villages on Glasgow's south side to present an up-to-date picture of life there through the years. New material has been introduced to most chapters, and a map of each village is included. This is the story of how old villages were expanded and new villages formed to house the workforces for particular industries; for example Govanhill, laid out by William Dixon for coal miners and skilled ironworkers brought from Shropshire. It is also a glimpse into the industries, events, and famous (and infamous) residents: the railway men at Corkerhill and Polmadie; the women munition workers at Cathcart and Cardonald; the 47 children in a two-roomed adventure school in Gorbals, some accommodated in the kitchen bed; and the moments of deep despair when a whole community was bereaved by a disaster in a pit or on the river. Villages of Glasgow: The South Side.
