Ghost Signs of Glasgow: Walk Around the East End

Saturday 7th December | 11am | Free, but booking essential 

Meeting Point: In front of St Luke’s (17 Bain Street, G40 2JZ) 

Ghost signs are the fading remains of old painted signs on buildings, which offer an invaluable window into the past.With the help of our great volunteers we have created engaging and informative walks around the city to highlight and learn more about the buildings and old signs.

Join us for a walk around the East End as our experienced and knowledgeable guides point out ghost signs and old shopfronts, explaining the history of the business and building behind the sign, with a focus on its architecture and design. Our guides will also be showing archive images of the area and buildings we explore. This tour is a great chance to look at the city with different eyes and learn more about often overlooked architecture. 

We will be walking along main roads, occasionally crossing very busy roads and areas, and potentially going up or down stairs. Please wear sturdy, comfortable shoes and bring a rain jacket just in case.
The walk will last between 1 hour and a half and 2 hours.
