    Glasgow's East End: A Social History
    Nuala Naughton - Hardback - Mainstream Publishing
    Of the four corners of Glasgow, the East End is the richest source of stories that reach back far into the annals of time. What began as a small patch of land owned by the ancient clergy has evolved through the ages, providing historians with a veritable treasure trove of colourful tales and interesting characters. This comprehensive anthology brings together the histories of the collective of districts that have developed over centuries and which give the East End of Glasgow its unique personality: the Gallowgate, Bridgeton, Calton, Parkhead, Shettleston, Tollcross and more. Many of the fading memories of latter years are kept alive in this oral history of Glasgow's East Enders, who have generously contributed their own anecdotes about life in an area that is poor in status yet rich in character.
