About this product
- DescriptionIan R. Mitchell takes the reader on an urban promenade along the Clyde and finds its character is created from far more than the remnants of shipbuilding. Clydeside relates stories of conflicts, people and communities, while incorporating present-day walks in these oft-forgotten areas, to allow the reader to fully appreciate the culture and history. Exploring more than just Glasgow itself, the book meanders from Coatbridge to Cathcart, Garngad to Greencock. Proving there's far more to Paisley than a deceased weaving industry, more to Shettleston than the old mining days and more to Dumbarton than the Black Death, Mitchell depicts a largely unseen side to the diverse towns and villages along the Clyde. From Robert Owen's New Lanark utopian experiment to the fascinating architecture of 'Greek' Thomson, here is a working-class history rich in political and industrial venture.
- Author BiographyA Boardman Tasker prize winner for A View from the Ridge, historian Ian R. Mitchell gave up teaching to write full time. Originally from Aberdeen, he has lived in Glasgow for the past thirty years, exploring the city's cultural and historical treasures in 'This City Now'. Having also written a number of guides to walking in Scotland, Mitchell is one of the country's most distinguished writers in this field.
