← Free Glasgow A History (English Edition) online ↔ Kindle Author Michael Meighan ❆ Located on the banks of the River Clyde, Glasgow was once the second city of the Empire, producing ships, locomotives, cars and heavy engineering for the world Its docks would see huge numbers of exports But Glasgow is much than this it is a religious centre, with one of Scotland s earliest churches, a centre for the Virginia tobacco trade, a home of designers and architects, inventors and entrepreneurs, artists and industrialists It is that variety of talent, and the melting pot of immigrants and other Scots, sucked into the city at its peak that saw the phenomenal growth in wealth and culture that has left the city with a legacy of fine Victorian architecture, and it is its decline that has seen a legacy of remote council estates However, Glasgow has risen again, and is truly a vibrant city, thanks to its self promotion from Dr Michael Kelly s Glasgow s Miles Better campaign to its use in gritty film and TV productions, as well as its ability to look at the past and preserve the best of the old, while producing some of the most startling modern architecture outside of London Michael Meighan tells the story of Glasgow, from its drumlin days in the Ice Age to the growth of the Church, its industries, its people and the phenomenal expansion of the Victorian era and the legacy it has left us.Michael Meighan is a Glaswegian author who has written substantially about Glasgow s history His previous works include Glasgow Smells Better 2011 , Glasgow with a Flourish 2011 , Scotland s Lost Industries 2012 , Glasgow Central Station Through Time 2013 , Edinburgh Waverley Station Through Time 2014 and The Forth Bridges Through Time 2014 also published by Amberley Born in Glasgow, he grew up in Anderston, within sight of the locomotives being craned on to ships to be exported worldwide He tells the story of Scotland s industrial powerhouse from the Ice Age to the present day.
