DESCRIPTION

In this informative and beautifully illustrated book, Carol Foreman traces Glasgow's history primarily through buildings which have been demolished, but which played a central part in the city's story at one time or another. Beginning with the Medieval age, the book is comprised of four parts spanning more than eight centuries: the Medieval town; from Reformation to the Act of Union; the Merchant City, and finally the Victorian Age. Lost Glasgow provides a fascinating picture of how the city evolved and how major events throughout the centuries affected its trade, people and environment. Churches, banks and theatres as well as domestic buildings all feature in this illuminating journey through Glasgow's rich architectural past. Carol Foreman's picture research has been meticulous and she has crammed in almost 150 maps, drawings, engravings, watercolours and photographs documenting the lost structures.
