Did you know?
Glasgow is Scotland’s largest urban economy and one of the fastest growing cities in the UK with a population of 600,000 and 2 million visitors each year.
Glasgow’s oldest house, Provond’s Lordship on Castle Street, was built in 1471.
In 1888 a Glaswegian umbrella manufacturer constructed the then largest umbrella in the world. It measured 21ft in diameter, and was used to provide shade for an African king and 30 of his people.
From western backwater to Scotland’s largest and most stylish city, Glasgow has come a long way. This engaging little book is packed full of insider knowledge, facts, figures and the secrets of a city which boasts more comedians than Liverpool, more engineers than Birmingham, better education than Oxford and fabulous Victorian and Georgian architecture. Glasgow – Ye Cannee Whack it!
