From its status as the Second City of the Empire to its current role as a vibrant and cosmopolitan centre of new industry and education, Glasgow has a proud history and, through the years, has invested in much loved buildings that have shaped its growth and contributed to its cultural identity. 'Glasgow in 50 Buildings' explores the history of this rich and vibrant community by presenting a selection of its greatest architectural treasures. From the medieval Provand's Lordship to the new Riverside Museum, this unique study celebrates Glasgow's architectural heritage in a new and accessible way. Glaswegian historian Michael guides the reader on a tour of the city's historic buildings and modern architectural marvels. The churches, theatres, commercial and public edifices of Glasgow's rich industrial heritage are presented alongside the innovative buildings of a 21st century city. Images are arranged chronologically to tell the story of Glasgow's development through its most significant buildings. A specially designed map appears at the beginning of the volume to show where each building is located and the text is illustrated with colour photographs and archival images showcasing the best of Glasgow's heritage.
