@PlanetBGlasgow @tradougcions 'Scots Lore' (1895) was a magazine run from Bothwell St, Glasgow. Lots of random information in there.

@PlanetBGlasgow @tradougcions ‘Memorial Catalogue of the Old Glasgow Exhibition 1894’ (1896) is fantastic for old letters, manuscripts & images of varying sites around Glasgow. There's one in particular at the top of Buchanan st @ Sauchiehall st but all that's there is a cottage.

@PlanetBGlasgow @tradougcions ‘Select Views on the River Clyde’ (1830) is just what you assume from the title. Plenty of information about the history of each town the author passes through.

@PlanetBGlasgow @tradougcions ‘Old Glasgow’ (1880) is super informative and I recommend it. The binding on the book itself is brilliant and makes it quite a heavy item. Lots of good illustrations scanned and included with the chapter text.

@PlanetBGlasgow @tradougcions ‘Sketches of Early Scotch History’ (1861) is a fairly dry read that pays off if you can get through it. The author, the awesomely named Cosmo Innes, is one of a few 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 authors who wrote from an 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 perspective with a view to satisfying 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 consumers.

@PlanetBGlasgow @tradougcions I've not got to this publication yet but I can have a flick through if you let me know what I'm looking for. It may contain gems 😉

@PlanetBGlasgow @tradougcions ‘Royal Scottish Album of Glasgow and the Clyde’ (Undated) is a book of picture postcards of the region. They're really nice examples of clean line work.

@PlanetBGlasgow @tradougcions Valentines Photos of Glasgow (1901ish) are fantastic and come in a wee envelope that's really cute. These are 1 of my favourite items.

@PlanetBGlasgow @tradougcions Thomas Fairbairn Glasgow Lithographs are brilliant and would be 1 of the 1st things I'd grab in a fire. I consider myself so lucky to have had a chance to obtain them. It's very strange finding yourself in 1 of Fairbairn's locations as nothing now remains

@PlanetBGlasgow @tradougcions There are photos of trams, Glasgow Cathedral, and the People's Palace with a very nice inscription across it.

@PlanetBGlasgow @tradougcions Information & photos of two of Glasgow's graveyards courtesy of site contributor Tam, who also introduced me to the Bridgeton History Group.

@PlanetBGlasgow @tradougcions Map of Glasgow for Comparison (1773-1800) from MacGeorge's 'Old Glasgow' (1880).

@PlanetBGlasgow @tradougcions Map of Glasgow (1879) from 'Harper's Handbook' must have been one of the last as Central Station isn't in existence on it, Alston st is still there instead. Central was opened in 1879.

@PlanetBGlasgow @tradougcions Map of Glasgow, Govan, and Partick (1650) which shows the swathes of nothing around the immediate Glasgow City area is from 'Charters and Other Documents Relating to the City of Glasgow’ (1897).

@PlanetBGlasgow @tradougcions Glasgow’s Cathedral & City Necropolis are my own photos taken during a tour of the Necropolis.

@PlanetBGlasgow @tradougcions I think that's it aside from the books on Glasgow I've yet to have a look at but maybe some of that lot'll prove useful to you
